Adhesives & Coatings

Adhesives

**Available to purchase online**

TML adhesives are specially formulated for bonding strain gauges to test specimens. Refer to the specification of each gauge series for the applicable type of adhesives. To maintain the shelf life store adhesives in a cool, dry and dark place such as a refrigerator (+5 to +10°C) but never store in a freezer. We stock all of our adhesives in the UK for fast delivery. Many of these can be purchased directly from our online store for fast and easy payment and shipping
