X60: Cold Curing Glue for Experimental Tests

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.
