VuduGlu™ VM100 Black is a high strength, toughened methyl methacrylate structural adhesive or MMA Adhesive offering unbeatable bonding of composite materials and bonding of metal fasteners and substrates to composite materials. VM100 Black is specially formulated to offer the very best performance for demanding structural bonding and is highly recommended for carbon-to-carbon and carbon-to-metal assembly. The adhesive is black in colour and therefore leaves a discreet bond-line when bonding carbon fibre or other dark materials.

As well as carbon fibre/epoxy laminates, VM100 Black is also ideal for bonding a range of glass fibre (GRP) laminates made using a range of resin systems including epoxy, polyester and vinylester and also demanding metal-to-metal bonding.

VuduGlu™ VM100 Black's revolutionary adhesion system enables the adhesive to achieve class-leading bond strength onto a wide range of substrates without the need for surface primers or conditioners resulting in an adhesive with both very high mechanical strength and impact resistance which is also fast and easy to use too.

Typical Uses

  • Carbon fibre to carbon fibre assembly (automotive/motorsport panels)
  • GRP assembly (boat hulls, jet-skis etc.)
  • Bonding fasteners to carbon fibre or other FRP laminates
  • Bonding dissimilar metals for heavy transport
  • General bonding for more demanding applications (sign making, architectural use, art installations etc.)

Further Information

Instructions for Use

  • Ensure surfaces to be bonded clean and degreased.
  • 'Key' surfaces to be bonded using an abrasive paper.
  • Remove any dust from the keying process.
  • If using a static mixer nozzle, dispense and dispose of a small amount or adhesive before applying the adhesive to the surfaces to bonded.
  • Apply the adhesive to one surface and assemble components using clamps where necessary to hold parts in place during cure.
  • Although VM100 will initially cure in around 10 mins, allow at least 24hrs before putting the bonded component into service.

Shelf Life & Storage

For maximum shelf-life, VM100 Black should be stored unopened in a cool, dry, dark location. Stored in this way, the adhesive has a shelf life of 12 months from the date of manufacture.

There is no practical minimum bond thickness for this adhesive although you do need to ensure that *some* adhesive is present, which is why glass spheres are sometimes used to prevent the adhesive from being scraped off completely. Essentially though, as long as an even thin film is applied the bond strength between the two materials will be good.

Yes, certainly. In fact the easiest way to do this is to simply leave the static mixer nozzle in place after you use the adhesive. The adhesive that's in the nozzle will have been mixed and so will cure but the glue at the start of the nozzle will be unmixed and not cured meaning the nozzle will twist off perfectly and the glue inside will have been protected from the atmosphere and so will be perfectly preserved ready for use.

A typical application of the adhesive is approximately a 0.5mm thick layer. At this thickness, one 50ml cartridge would cover an area 30cm by 30cm; a 400ml cartridge would cover an area approximately 90cm by 90cm.

For best results when gluing over a large surface area, use a spreader to help ensure the adhesive is laid down in an even layer.

Nylon, in common with many inert thermoplastics, can be difficult to bond to, even with the modern generation of structural adhesives. However, it is possible to bond with VM100 if you “flame treat” the nylon just prior to adhesive application. The flame treatment helps the adhesive get the best bond possible to the nylon

Yes, once cured methacrylates are are a very stable acrylic plastic which would offer good long term performance below the waterline.

No, unfortunately VM100 Black is not designed to stick any rubber or silicone materials. Silicone is particular can be a very difficult material to bond to and will almost always require a specialist silicone adhesive.

Yes, our VM100B is highly UV resistant.

The VM100 makes an excellent adhesive for bonding tabs on test tokens. In our own laboratory we also use ET515 Semi Flexible 15min Professional Epoxy Adhesive for some tests where more flexural strength is required.

Plexus is an adhesive manufacturer who are best know for their methacrylate adhesives. VuduGlu VM100 is also a methacrylate adhesive (an MMA) which is similar to some Plexus MMAs although it is not manufactured by Plexus and does not directly match any of their product variants.

VM100 Black will bond reasonably well to ABS. It would be important to key the surface and give it a thorough clean before bonding.

Yes, VM100 Black is a very diverse adhesive and can bond a variety of materials. Aluminium to aluminium with VM100 will give a good strong bond. Both surfaces will need a good key and a thorough clean to achieve the best results.

VM100 is not electrically conductive in its natural form. Like many adhesives and resins, conductivity can be very fractionally improved through the addition of metallic particles and/or carbon fibres, however the resistance is extremely high in these circumstances.

Once fully cured you will have no problems sanding and shaping the cured adhesive as necessary.

Yes, VM100 Black would make a good adhesive for this application. The bond strength to aluminium and carbon fibre would both be excellent, subject to appropriate preparation (de-greasing, keying).

We would recommend our VM100 Black 10min Methacrylate Adhesive; it has excellent bond strength between aluminium and carbon fibre.

The cap on the VM100 is removed by initially snapping the cap off leaving the exposed nozzle.



Once you have finished with using the glue, the snapped off cap is turned upside down and will fit over the glue tube by pressing on and rotating 90 degrees clockwise to seal.

The VM100 would be a perfect adhesive in terms of bond strength for bonding carbon fibre sheet to a gelcoated boat dash, however, it’s important to note that the VM100 is black and so if any of it squeezes out you would need to make a neat job of cleaning up the adhesive around the edges; if you do then the black of the adhesive will nicely match the black of the sheet and leave you with a tidy job. As always, pay attention to key both surfaces using abrasive paper to ensure the best bond.

Customer Product Reviews for VM100 Black 10min Methyl Methacrylate Adhesive

5/5 Average rating

It is a perfect product for carbon fiber to carbon fiber bond. It is also OK to fill in some small imperfections onto the laminates, it's already black. I do not recommand it in case there a too much parts involved in the bonding operation. It fast curing properties can be a real plus, but if there is a lot of parts to bond at the same time, then you may rush to have everything positionned and aligned
