For assembling light-gauge steel structural building components, the Loctite®Adhesive Connection System combines a durable, high-strength structural adhesive and dozens of pneumatic pins to safely assemble shear walls, roof/floor trusses, I-beams, headers, jamb studs, and cantilever beams. The easy-to-use, patented system eliminates hundreds of collated screws and their associated installation time, and reduces overall assembly time by 89% and associated expenses by 59%.
The Adhesive Connection System is a two-step process. First, Loctite H8600TMSpeedbonderTMstructural adhesive is applied to the galvanized steel components. Specially formulated to provide long-term bond strength and durability on galvanized surfaces, the adhesive delivers high load carrying and enhanced cyclic loading properties. Next, a small number of pneumatic pins are installed to provide immediate structural integrity along with the clamping force required during the adhesive cure cycle.
