- High resistance to hot and wet conditions
- High elongation
- Bonds a wide range of metals
ARALDITE® 2053 adhesive ensures durable, reliable bonding – even in the harshest conditions. The resulting bond resists aging and fatigue, with an elongation rate of more than 50% and a high resistance to hot and wet environments. By distributing stress uniformly over bonded areas, ARALDITE® 2053 adhesive helps maintain physical integrity while enabling lightweight design.Play Video

** For the maximum continuous operating temperature, we consider the maximum temperature for which the residual lap shear strength is 1/3 of the lap shear strength at room temperature or the temperature for which the residual lap shear strength is 5 MPa.
Bonding of dissimilar substrates of primary and secondary structures in rail coach construction.
Formulated to create durable bonds for a wide variety of surfaces, the ARALDITE® 2053-05/15 adhesive is perfectly suited for this application.
The adhesive's load distribution allows for the use of lower-weight panels in rail coach construction with unchanged mechanical properties, which leads to improved energy efficiency.
Bonding multi-material, mid-sized interior parts inside rail coaches.
With strong adhesion to metals, composites and thermoplastic materials, the ARALDITE® 2053-05/15 adhesive can be used for many applications.
This means reduced application complexity, inventory and training of workers. Elongation of more than 50% ensures resistance to dynamic loading and long-term durability.
Bonding large panels on trailers.
By distributing stress uniformly over bonded areas, the ARALDITE® 2053-05/15 adhesive helps maintain physical integrity.
No need for pretreatment combined with an optimal open time enables a faster cycle time and increased throughput.
By eliminating drilling, the panels are finished with a smooth, clean and attractive appearance.
Bonding of mid-sized, mixed-material interior bus and trucks parts.
The ability to bond dissimilar substrates makes the ARALDITE® 2053-05/15 adhesive ideal for this task.
Limited surface pretreatment combined with an optimal open time reduces production cycle time. With an elongation rate of more than 50%, the resulting bond is durable and reliable.
Bonding complex, multi-material interior components with differing thermal expansion rates.
With limited need for pretreatment, the ARALDITE® 2053-05/15 adhesive reliably bonds different metals and substrates.
The adhesive's non-sagging properties ensure easy application to even the most complex designs.
Reliable bonding of safety fittings that are exposed to the most challenging environmental conditions.
ARALDITE® 2053-05/15 adhesive is highly resistant to harsh chemicals, as well as hot and wet environments, which ensures long-lasting, reliable bonds on safety-critical components.
This adhesive retains more than 85% of performance qualities even after being continuously immersed in water at 70°C.
ARALDITE® 2053-05/15 cartridges are designed to protect against performance degradation in harsh conditions, making this the perfect adhesive for on-the-go applications.
