Adhesives are formulated to fixture in five to 20 mins and deliver peel and
shear strength once cured. Loctite H8100 and H8110 Speedbonder Structural
Adhesives provide tough, long-lasting bonds and are designed to reduce or
eliminate welds, rivets and threaded fasteners.
Both Loctite H8100 and Loctite H8110 Speedbonder

490 ml dual cartridges.
These structural adhesives provide shear strengths similar
to overlap welds and are stronger than spot welds and rivets. They can be used
in the assembly of agricultural/construction equipment, specialty vehicles,
appliances, signage, tubs/spas, building components and other industrial
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
