Araldite 2019: the best product for bonding carbon bikes

Araldite 2019 structural Adhesive, formerly known as Araldite AW4859 / HW4958, is a high performance two-component epoxy adhesive that is particularly effective for bonding epoxy / carbon fiber composite parts.

Thanks to its excellent mechanical strength (up to 33 MPa in shear strength and 40 MPa in tensile strength), its resistance to shocks and vibrations (5% elongation at break, Young’s modulus 1.5 GPa) and its resistance to high temperatures (up to 140 ° C), the Araldite® 2019 is the “top of the range” product for all technical applications, such as the assembly of carbon fiber parts.

Thanks to these properties, Araldite® 2019 is used by several manufacturers of carbon bikes, for applications requiring high technicality (frame or wheel bonding). The weight of a bike being an essential parameter for racing bikes, for example, the low density of this structural adhesive (about 1.1) also allows the structure to be lightened.
