X60 is the proven fast curing adhesive for experimental tests, porous materials, and use at low temperatures. X60 adhesive is very easy to use and is also suitable for fixing cables and sensors in place.
X60, consisting of methylmetacrylate, is the first choice for typical experimental applications in strain gauge installation. It can be used on porous materials (concrete, cast-iron, wood, ceramics, among others) and also on smooth surfaces. X60 can even be used at very low, cryogenic temperatures up to -200°C and cures in a matter of minutes.
The adhesive consists of two components, which makes it very easy to use in a practical setting: Component A is in the form of a powder that is added with a measuring spoon (included). Component B, a liquid, is measured simply by counting drops. The adhesive is mixed in the accompanying container, which makes it easy to adjust its consistency.
- Cold curing glue: Cures within a few minutes (2 minutes at 35°C/95°F, 10 minutes at 20°C/68°F, 60 minutes at 0°C/32°F)
- Consists of two components (powder, liquid)
- Even for very low temperatures down to -200 °C
Now with an enhanced formula
X60 in an enhanced formula is free of dicyclohexyl phthalate (CAS 84-61-7).
Note: With the new formulation, a subsequent removal with solvents is no longer possible. Also, the curing time is a few minutes longer.
The following are two types of complete packages available:
- 1-X60: 100 g component A, 2 x 40 ml component B. Enough for about 100 strain gauges*
- 1-X60-NP: 400 g component A, 2 x 200 ml component B. Enough for about 400 strain gauges*
Both complete packages already include the accessories required for strain gauge installation—stirring containers, stirrers, cellophane foil, measuring spoon, operating manual and safety data sheets. *The specified quantities are approximate recommended values only, as adhesive consumption also partly depends on the size of the strain gauges being used.
