DESCRIPTION
For routine experimental stress analysis applications
under temperate environmental conditions, M-Bond 200
adhesive is ordinarily the best choice. This adhesive
is very easy to handle, and cures almost instantly to
produce an essentially creep-free, fatigue-resistant bond,
with elongation capability of five percent or more.
M-Bond 200 is a cyanoacrylate that has been pretested
and certified for use in bonding strain gages. It is an
excellent general-purpose adhesive for laboratory and
short-term field applications. The procedure for making a
strain gage installation with M-Bond 200 is illustrated and
described in detail in Instruction Bulletin B-127 included in
each kit of adhesive.
The user should note that the performance of the
adhesive can be degraded by the effects of time,
humidity conditions, elevated temperature, and moisture
absorption. Because of the latter effect, strain gage
installations should always be covered with a suitable
protective coating. When necessitated by more rigorous
test requirements and/or environmental conditions,
consideration should be given to one of the M-Bond
epoxy adhesives, using the “Recommended Adhesives/
Strain Gage Series” chart.
CHARACTERISTICS
PARAMETER DETAILS
CURE
REQUIREMENTS*
One-minute thumb pressure, followed by a minimum two-minute delay before tape removal.
Bond strength increases rapidly during first five minutes. Cure time must be extended under conditions of
low temperature [<70°F (<21°C)] or low humidity (<40% RH).
OPERATING
TEMPERATURE
RANGE
Short Term:
–300° to +200°F (–185° to +95°C).
Long Term:
–25° to +150°F (–32° to +65°C).
ELONGATION
CAPABILITIES >5% at +75°F (+24°C), 3% at +75°F (+24°C) when used with CEA or EA/Option E strain gages.
SHELF LIFE
Minimum 12 months when stored unopened at +40°F (+5°C)
or minimum 9 months when stored unopened at +75°F (+24°C).
Note: To ensure a proper seal, wipe bottle spout clean and dry before replacing cap.
Note: Condensation rapidly degrades adhesive performance and shelf life; if refrigerated, allow adhesive
to reach room-temperature before opening. Refrigeration after opening is not recommended.
POT LIFE Maximum 3 months at +75°F (+24°C) (not to exceed date of expiration) after opening.
Replace the cap immediately after each use.
