Permabond ET515 is a two-part, semi-flexible, clear epoxy structural adhesive offering good adhesion to a wide variety of substrates includes wood, metal, ceramics, composites and some plastics.

ET515 is relatively quick curing, reaching handling strength in 20-30minutes. Its semi-flexible property at full cure makes it suitable for use in applications where the bond-line will be subjected to an amount of flexing or movement, including when bonding different materials where different rates of thermal expansion are anticipated.

ET515 is not particularly thixotropic and so is not suitable for gap filling more than 2mm.

Pack Sizes and Dispensing

ET500 is available in 50ml or 400ml pack sizes which can be selected at the top of the page. Both pack sizes use 1:1 ratio cartridges and require a suitable cartridge dispenser gun.

The cartridges are intended to be used with static mixer nozzles which fully mix the two components as they pass through the nozzle. They are supplied with one nozzle but once used, adhesive cures in the nozzle and they need to be discarded. Additional nozzles are available to buy separately:

There is no practical minimum bond thickness for this adhesive although you do need to ensure that *some* adhesive is present, which is why glass spheres are sometimes used to prevent the adhesive from being scraped off completely. Essentially though, as long as an even thin film is applied the bond strength between the two materials will be good.

Yes, certainly. In fact the easiest way to do this is to simply leave the static mixer nozzle in place after you use the adhesive. The adhesive that's in the nozzle will have been mixed and so will cure but the glue at the start of the nozzle will be unmixed and not cured meaning the nozzle will twist off perfectly and the glue inside will have been protected from the atmosphere and so will be perfectly preserved ready for use.

A typical application of the adhesive is approximately a 0.5mm thick layer. At this thickness, one 50ml cartridge would cover an area 30cm by 30cm; a 400ml cartridge would cover an area approximately 90cm by 90cm.

For best results when gluing over a large surface area, use a spreader to help ensure the adhesive is laid down in an even layer.

Yes ET515 will bond to properly prepared polyester resin parts but surface preparation will be important. Ensure you ‘key’ the part using some abrasive paper and that all dirt and contaminates are cleaned off to help you get the best bond possible.

ET515 is an option but probably more common, and more suitable, would be our VM100 methyl methacrylate adhesive. The only drawback to the VM100 however is its working time which, at only a few minutes, is pretty fast. If you feel you may need more time to position the assembly then our ET538 adhesive would also make a good choice. Both of these systems have been used and proved by a number of bike builders.

ET515 is well suited to applications under vibration and shock such as on a caravan or vehicle. For best adhesion, both surfaces need to be heavily keyed with sandpaper and thoroughly degreased and cleaned prior to bonding.

The Shelf life of the ET515 is 12 months when stored in a cool and dry place.

Yes, ET515 is a great adhesive for bonding carbon fibre to a range of substrates. What can make ET515 particularly suitable, depending on the application, is its high flexural strength which means that bonds are more resistant to impact and shock when compared to other adhesives.

Yes ET515 can be pigmented. We have a range of Epoxy Colour Pigments that will work well. Alternatively, for transparent tints try our range of Translucent Tinting Pigments.
