Structural Adhesives

Structural Adhesives Imerys wollastonite are excellent solutions for reinforcing the mechanical properties of structural adhesives

Structural adhesives or ‘load-bearing’ adhesives need to stand the test of time. Products may undergo shock, vibration, chemical exposure, temperature excursions and many other destructive influences that may weaken systems. 

With their distinctive acicular morphology, wollastonites are excellent solutions for reinforcing the mechanical properties of structural adhesives including epoxies, methacrylates, polyurethanes, and cyanoacrylate adhesives (CAs).

 

Imerys wollastonite:

  • Impart strength and tensile (peel strength)
  • Improve sag resistance
  • Can be used to replace or extend milled or chopped glass fiber

Our wollastonites are suitable for use in:

  • Windmill structural adhesives
  • OEM automotive structural adhesives
  • Aerospace / Aircraft adhesives
  • Composite panel adhesives
  • Composite paperboard adhesives

Our chemically modified grades are engineered to provide cohesion strength. They have been specifically designed for load-bearing reactive adhesives based on a range of polymer systems. 


We recommend our Nyglos®, Nyad® and high aspect ratio Aspect® wollastonites for structural adhesives.

We offer a full range of custom formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
