Loctite 3421/50ml – Structural Bonding 2k Epoxy
Loctite EA 3421 structural bonding – 2K Epoxy, general purpose, long open time.
Loctite EA 3421 is a two component epoxy adhesive which cures slowly at room temperature after mixing. It is a general purpose, flowable adhesive which develops high strength and has excellent moisture resistance. The long working life and medium viscosity make this adhesive system suitable for large surfaces and where adjustment time is needed after assembly.
