Tecbond 261 – The tough but flexible product assembly adhesive

Tecbond 261 is a versatile and strong product assembly adhesive with the ability to bond a variety of substrates, including wood, metal, glass, ceramics, and many plastics, including polypropylene. The adhesive’s high bond strength and flexibility also make it ideal for many general-purpose applications.

Along with its high bond strength, tecbond 261 features class-leading output, reducing effort on the glue gun trigger and ensuring the user can dispense as much adhesive as required. Additionally, 261’s longer open time allows for the accurate positioning of substrates before compression, at which point the adhesive dries quickly with enough bond flexibility to withstand small substrate movements.

With the ability to run through both hot and low melt applicators, the properties of tecbond 261 can be tailored to suit the needs of the user. Running the adhesive at the highest temperature lowers its viscosity, increases its open time, and ensures the strongest possible bonds. When run at lower temperatures, not only can the adhesive be used on heat-sensitive substrates, but the higher viscosity also decreases sag.

Available in 12mm and 15mm sticks and 43mm slugs, tecbond 261 has been formulated in tandem with the range of tec and b-tec applicators. This ensures both the adhesive and tool deliver optimal results when used together. For the highest possible output, we suggest using 261 with the 3000, 6000, and 7000 series applicators.

Like all adhesives in the tecbond range, tecbond 261 doesn’t contain any organic solvents or harmful chemicals that are given off in the application process. This negates the need for respiratory PPE. The adhesive also has a near-unlimited shelf life with no wastage, as any unused adhesive left in the applicator is simply remelted whenever the tool is next switched on.
