FAST CURE ADHESIVES WITHOUT PLASTIC CARTRIDGES
This white paper guides you to alternatives based on the unique PowerCure packaging and dispensing system.
Fast cure structural adhesives ensure optimal manufacturing processes across the industry. Such adhesives develop strength quickly and enable manufacturers to reduce takt time. In broad areas of the industry, two-component adhesives are dispensed from plastic cartridges, leaving a large pile of packaging waste. Now (2022), the availability of this kind of packaging is very limited in the European market, and thus many adhesives have become unavailable for manufacturers. As a result, the unavailable adhesive may lead to a stop of the production line: impacting one's revenue and ability to supply.

Fast-cure adhesives are typically packed in plastic 2C cartridges, which result in a high waste volume. Sausage packaging has become the standard packaging for Industrial users of 1C adhesives for decades; with PowerCure this environmentally friendly packaging is now also available for fast cure adhesives.
Both systems were fully charged and operated at maximum speed. For waste, cartridges were extruded completely, weight is without mixer 2C: PC Cox ElectraFlow Dual Ultra, Sikaflex®-953 490ml 10:1 system, Sulzer Mixpac F System Cartridge, Mixer: Statomix® MS 13-18-G: Extrusion 198 g/min, Waste 158g PowerCure: Sika PowerCure Dispenser, Sikaflex®-554 PowerCure 50:1, Sika PowerCure Packaging and Dynamic Mixer: Extrusion 420g/min, Waste: 63g
Sika PowerCure Solutions for Vehicle Manufacturing and Transportation
Sika’s adhesive solutions for the transportation industry are available as 1C, bulk booster solutions, and the PowerCure system. These products reach the same final performance, regardless of cured by air moisture or SikaBooster®.
In use, the combination of such products is beneficial. For example, Sikaflex® Booster, out of bulk, is most economical for large volume applications. Sikaflex® PowerCure, however, is ideal for line applications where less consumption is required. Pump equipment is often not financially justified.
- Flexible, to evolve with your process
- Save material costs by using Booster only where beneficial
- Robust processing will reach the same result with or without Booster
