Advanced Polymers for High-Tech Applications Choosing the correct adhesive for an application is critical and ÅngströmBond ® premium quality adhesives offer a wide range of solutions for any requirement.
Adhesives are often generalized and end up being used in the wrong application resulting in disastrous effects. One adhesive does not work well in all applications. ÅngströmBond ® offers its own line of single and multi component specialty adhesive systems as well as systems from your favorite adhesive manufacturers. Most material can be supplied in easy to use 2-part packets, premixed and frozen syringes or cartridges, jars, vials, quarts, gallons or other specialty packing as required.
A Solution to Any & All Epoxy Related Problems
Our goal is to supply the best possible material for your application. By using ÅngströmBond ® supplied material, you can minimize the typical adhesive related problems outlined below.

2-Part Packets (bi-packs)
Small, 2-part packets promote minimal waste but are also key to ensuring proper mix ratios, as mix ratio is essential to epoxy performance. If the ratio is off by even a small amount, failures may occur immediately or at anytime during operation. All our packaging maintains a strict mix ratio of at least +/- 1%. Our packaging materials are also of the highest quality to ensure that the adhesives will remain consistent throughout their shelf life.
Premixed & Frozen
Our premixed and frozen adhesives loaded in syringes or cartridges are accurately pre-weighed, de-aired and flash frozen, so you do not have to do it. All of these steps ensure maximum adhesive performance, while flash freezing guarantees the maximum working time. Using premixed and frozen adhesives greatly reduces the potential for errors, and the end result is simply a safer material that yields increased quality at lower costs.
Epoxy Dispensing Machines
When using an automatic dispensing machine, further costs can be saved and product consistency improved with either the pre-weighed packets or the premixed and frozen packages. A system can be devised which can reduce operator variability to ensure the same amount of adhesive is injected each time. The unit will also decrease the repetitive motion that can sometimes lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Premixed and frozen can be packaged in an automatic cartridge that fits your dispensing machine, thus adding to your savings.
