Metal to Metal adhesives available in the market are very dated in their technology and performance. As markets change and time moves on, demand increases for quicker and better alternatives. Bonding Metal to Metal is no easy task in the first place with varying levels of oxides, which react or create a barrier against the adhesives and pose as a challenge with conventional Metal to Metal adhesives. These types of adhesives are from the two-component family of adhesives (namely epoxies) that have to be mixed in exact proportions or they will fail. These Metal to Metal adhesives are very slow to cure, in some types, taking up to seven days. However, when cured normally, they only provide an adequate bond.
Metals such as mild steel are less difficult to bond but light alloys such as aluminium are very difficult and these Metal to Metal adhesives just cannot cope with the huge oxide content. Another disadvantage of these Metal to Metal adhesives is the lack of flexibility as there can be a variance due to fluctuating temperatures. These two component adhesives cure rock hard, which is little use as an adhesive for metal.
