Alphabond 5300 is a two component structural methacrylate adhesive, designed for the bonding of high strength metal and composite applications. 5300 has been formulated from innovative technology, including our revolutionary adhesion system. This unique system enables the 5300 to achieve the ultimate balance of mechanical strength and impact resistance whilst still remaining both simple and quick to use.
Fast cure adhesive with fast strength build up
Excellent bonding to a wide range of metals and plastics
Easy to use
High shear strength
High impact strength
Good chemical resistance
No need for surface primers or conditioners
Alphabond 5300 is suitable for the following applications:
- Versatile structural adhesive that bonds a wide variety of substrates
- Bonding metal fasteners to molded composite parts
- Bonding aluminium and stainless steel lettering in sign manufacture
- Bonding automotive carbon fibre body panels
- Bonding GRP in the marine industry
- Bonding dissimilar metals for trailer fabrication

HANDLING & APPLICATIONS
The general application information presented here is based upon typical conditions determined by Alpha Adhesives & Sealants Limited testing. Our recommendations on the use of this product are based on methods believed to be reliable. It is advised that users conduct their own tests to determine the suitability of the product for their specific application.
All substrate surfaces should be abraded using abrasion paper or air-driven narrow belt sander. It is imperative that the surfaces are then cleaned of any dust, grit, loose material, wax, grease and oil using a suitable cleaner such as Alpha T559.
- Remove the cap from the twin syringe and attach the supplied mixer nozzle. Dispense a sufficient amount of adhesive to ensure both components are mixing equally.
- Apply the mixed adhesive on to one of the substrates.
- Assemble the substrates together carefully within the working life (5 to 7 minutes). Use clamps to hold together if necessary.
Remove any excess adhesive prior to curing using a suitable cleaner. It is much easier to remove excess whilst it is uncured.
Handling strength is achieved approximately 30 minutes after bonding. Full cure is achieved 24 hours after bonding.
A suitable solvent cleaner such as Alpha T559 should be used to clean uncured adhesive prior to curing.
When fully cured, Alphabond 5300 will require mechanical sanding to remove material.
HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION
Alphabond 5300 is classified as hazardous according to Directive EC 1272/2008. Please refer to the Alphabond 5300 Safety Data Sheet for further health & safety information.
Alphabond 5300 should be stored in its original container, with the syringe cap tightly secured, in dry conditions and at temperatures between 5°C and 25°C. Alphabond 5300 will keep satisfactorily for up to 12 months from date of manufacture if stored according to the recommended conditions.
