Loctite 3090 data sheet - .PDF file.

Loctite 3090 instant adhesive from Henkel is formulated to cure very quickly when confined between surfaces. The product is said to provide application flexibility in that it can be used to fill gaps up to 5mm — something that most instant adhesives cannot achieve.

Loctite 3090 is particularly suitable as a workshop or general maintenance adhesive and is also a good choice where low bloom is required. It can even be used to encapsulate a delicate component part — once it has hardened, it can be machined and polished.

It provides instant adhesion between most materials, including porous substances such as wood, paper, leather, cork and fabric. It can also be used on low-surface-energy plastics when pre-treated with Loctite 770 polyolefin primer.
