Formobond R519 – what is it?

Formobond R519 is one of our 2-part methacrylate adhesives, designed to bond a wide range of substrates in the marine, transportation, trailer and fiberglass industries. This adhesive is commonly used in structural bonding, to eliminate the need for mechanical fasteners.

Within these industries, Formobond R519 bonds a vast range of metals and rubber materials, as well as composites and many other substrates. It also bonds engineered thermoplastics, thermosets, composites and metal structural elements together in any combination.

With its 1:1 ration, Formobond R519 is easy to mix and dispense. Minimal surface preparation is required when using this adhesive, and it forms tough, high strength, high impact resistant bonds. R519 is impact and weather resistant, and also resists most common industrial cleaners, fuels and lubricants. The tough bond retains its strength in boiling water, salt water, salt fog, kerosene, gasoline, diesel fuel, antifreeze, hydraulic fluids and cutting oils.
