CDx Industrial offers structural adhesives for a wide range of industrial applications and are available in several chemistries:
1 and 2 part epoxies
2 part Polyurethane
Cyanoacrylate ("super glue")
Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) (low odor)
Water Based Epoxy
Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA)
Structural adhesives eliminate mechanical fasteners and welds while reducing weight, preventing corrosion, and even improving aesthetics. Our wide range of adhesives yield superior bond strength and durability on a variety of substrates including but not limited to, metal, wood, ceramic, composites, and difficult to bond materials such as plastics, PVC and vinyl just to name a few.
Flexible or rigid
Room temp or heat cure
Highly toughened & impact resistant
Thermally conductive (adhesives and gel)
High and low temp
CDx Industrial structural adhesives can be supplied in bulk as single gallons, pails, drums and totes; or in convenient to use cartridges of 50mL, 200mL or 400mL size. CA and MMA are provided in various bottle sizes 20-500 grams.

Honeycomb and Laminate Panel Adhesives
High Strength To Weight Ratios Demand High Performance Adhesives
A honeycomb or laminate sandwich panel uses adhesive reinforced skins bonded to an internal honeycomb core that resists shear stresses from the tension and compression subjected to the outer skins. The skins and cores are most commonly made of aluminum, however, a wide variety of materials from paper, foam, and wood, to a plethora of engineered films and plastics are also utilized.
CDx Industrial adhesives are formulated by EFI Polymers, and exhibit a highly toughened, superior strength-to-weight ratio across a broad range of substrates. We have specially formulated chemistries for numerous industries, including mass transit rail, automobile, marine, aerospace, trucking & trailers, construction, and even traditional & parabolic solar panels. All systems are solvent free, 100% solids.
For honeycomb panels, most of our adhesives are formulated with controlled rheology necessary for proper fillet development where the skins contact the core. Since very little contact area is available between core and skin, the fillet is critical for increasing the surface area of the bond and providing structural integrity.
In addition to skin to core products, we also have options for edge-to-edge gluing, along with non-sag, sandable edge filling systems.
For laminating applications, our systems provide proper wetting and film formations free of “fish eyes” and agglomeration, especially where surface tenson is challenging such as plastics, PVC and vinyl.
Superior shear, drum peel and compressive strength
Wide range of working time options for flexibility in various manufacturing methods
Room temp cure and heat cure
Tailored rheology’s for thixotropy, sag and fillet development
Flame retardant and Fire Smoke Toxicity options available (FR & FST). Contact CDx Industrial

Acoustical Panel Adhesives & Anchoring Resins
CDx Industrial offers EFI Polymers acoustic panel product suite of environmentally friendly, water based polyvinyl acetate (PVA) adhesives and 100% solids anchoring resins. (also known as “Spotting Resin”). These materials are tested according to ASTM E-84 Tunnel Test and have achieved a Flame Spread Rating of 25 or less (Class A).
These water-based PVA materials are free of solvents and styrene, are non-yellowing, and designed to be used with fiberglass acoustic panels, mineral wool, recycled materials, foam, wood, foams, leather, FSK, ASJ or any other porous substrate. They dry tack-free and can be cleaned easily with water.
Our edge hardener material is a modified waterborne PVA resin that is formulated with a unique blend of surfactants enabling the material to quickly and easily penetrate any porous substrate. The resulting edge is hard and rigid which holds its shape, allowing you to stretch fabric for clean tight corners. This material is applied by dipping, rolling, or spraying. With the addition of a heat, panels can by dry and ready for handling in as little as 15-20 minutes.
Our face adhesives are designed to offer excellent wet tack, quick green strength, and fast set-up. This material also dries tack free, and is easy to apply via spraying or rolling. The unique thixotropy of this adhesive allows you to apply the material across the entire face of your acoustic panel without effecting its acoustic qualities.
Anchoring Resin (Spotting Resin)
Our 100% solids fiberglass panel anchoring epoxy eliminates the challenges that come with traditional polyester resin. No VOC’s, no solvents, and completely free of styrene and or other irritating odors. These systems are dimensionally stable and will not warp panels from exothermic heat. The low viscosity provides deep penetration to provide a thick embedment to anchor mechanical fasteners.
