Can I use SCIGRIP SG5000-06 instead of 2 Ton Epoxy?


I couldn’t find the exact product in Romania and the company that sold me the acrylic cement offered another adhesive in place of 2 Ton Epoxy called SCIGRIP SG5000 (Methacrylate adhesive) which they say it’s even better, but at a closer inspection of the data sheet there are some differences like: Tensile strength - 35-40Mpa , Viscosity, cps - Part A 90,000 - 150,000, Part B 150,000 - 200,000, (they don’t provide viscosity for the mix but I guess should be somewhere in between), and the one worries me most - Maximum Tensile Elongation - 5 - 10% (as compared to 1% for 2 Ton). The data sheet says “Excellent environmental & chemical resistance, permanent bonds in harsh environments.” Can you please tell me if it’s ok the solution they suggested? Thank you in advance.

This sounds like a great question for our user forums so you can get input from the community, and maybe someone who has run into the same issue.
