High-Strength, Super Duty Epoxies That Mix Perfectly, Harden Fast & Hold Like Iron
Acra 2-part epoxies are truly revolutionary in terms of strength, hardening time, and their ability to bond to almost any material. Specially formulated, clear drying, resin/hardener in a 1-to-1 ratio, sets and cures fast for rock solid, virtually invisible repairs every time. Use in the shop, field or even around the house to permanently repair hundreds of items that would otherwise be thrown in the trash. Will not dry out, crack or become brittle with time. Unlike traditional adhesives, Acra-Quick is unaffected by moisture and chemicals. Forms an amazingly strong, tight bond to metals, woods, ceramics, and most plastics.
SUPERIOR STRENGTH: Acra-Quick products have all the famous strength and holding power of Acraglas and Acraglas Gel. Once they set, they’re stuck! Once they cure, they’re virtually indestructible.
FAST SETTING: There’s no sitting around, watching the clock, waiting for your repair to dry when working with Acra-Quick. Because time is valuable, we’ve engineered the chemical hardening action of these epoxies to reduce your repair time. Quick-setting Acra-Quick 3-Minute Epoxy provides a mixed, working time of 2-3 minutes, reaches handling strength in 5 minutes (at 70°F), and cures to full strength in 24 hours. Acra-Quick Gel are 5-minute epoxies with a slightly longer setup time of 3-5 minutes. Full holding strength is reached after 24 hours. For additional working time, select Acra-20. Slower-setting than the others with a 15-20 minute working time that allows some repositioning, plus you can color the epoxy with any of our Acraglas dyes. Reaches handling strength in 60 minutes, full strength in 24 hours, and it sets up in temperatures down to 0°F.
CONSISTENCY: Moderately thick, Acra-Quick 3-Minute Epoxy and Acra-20 20-Minute Epoxy are semi-fluid formulas with a consistency similar to that of model glue; they flow well, fill gaps and get into those hard-to-reach crevices that block thicker formulas. Acra-Quick Gel 5-Minute epoxies are no-run formulas that won’t drip or migrate out. They stay put and excel on repairs where gravity works against you.
DIMENSIONALLY STABLE: Due to the advanced molecular structure of Acra epoxies, expect no shrinkage, cracks or weakening of the repair seam. Mended parts remain tight, gaps stay filled, and the repair remains super strong and virtually invisible for years to come.
CHEMICAL RESISTANT: Clean and maintain the fixed item as you normally would prior to repair. Acra epoxies resist deterioration and weakening caused by common solvents and detergents. Won’t break down in sunlight or frigid temperatures.
EASY-TO-USE: No other quick-set epoxies apply with such efficiency as Acra products. Our newly developed epoxy cartridges, application gun, and mixing tips work as a unique dispensing system to deliver the correct mix and right amount of resin exactly where you want it. Auger-type mixing tip blends the incoming resin and hardener for a perfect 1-to-1 ratio as you work the application gun, so you use only what you need. When finished, remove and discard the mixing tip, and cap the cartridge until next time. Reuse the heavy duty, application gun time and time again.
LITTLE TRICKS: The mixing tip itself holds approximately 1 teaspoon total, mixed Acra-Quick. Some folks worry about losing that product when they throw away the tip. If you're one, you can leave the tip off, squeeze out a little of both parts and hand-mix for small jobs. Just make sure you clean up the end of the cartridge thoroughly.
