H.B. Fuller TS880

H.B. Fuller TS880 is a two-part adhesive (10:1 ratio by volume), which can bond many low-surface-energy plastics without special surface preparation, including many grades of polypropylene, polyethylene, TPO, etc. TS880 can replace screws, rivets, plastic welding, and two-step processes that include chemical etchants, priming, or surface treatments in many applications. Typical applications include bonding plastics, metals, glass, and rubbers.

General Instructions
  • For best performance bond surfaces should be clean, free of grease and all other surface contaminants.
  • It is recommended that either meter mix equipment or cartridges with static mix nozzles be used to ensure the proper 10:1 mix ratio and dispense the adhesive. Hand mixing is not recommended and may result in unpredictable results.
  • Lower temperature will diminish the reactivity of the product, and higher temperature will speed up curing process. The recommended temperature of the working circumstance is 15~30°C.
  • To assure maximum bond strength, surfaces must be mated within the adhesive’s open time. Use enough material to completely fill the joint when parts are clamped.
  • Do not return unused material to container as it would result in contamination and/or premature hardening of contents

Storage & Handling

Handling and Clean-Up

Clean up is best before the adhesive has cured. Cleaners containing NMP (N-methyl pyrolidone) or Citrus terpene provide the best results. On cured adhesive repeat use may be required.

Storage

For maximum shelf life, TS880 Acrylic-based Structural Adhesive should be stored in a cool, dry area at below 4°C. When stored at the recommended temperatures in the original unopened containers, this product has a shelf life of six months from date of shipment.
