Lifting a weight of 17.5 tons with only 3 grams of adhesive.

By lifting an 17.5-ton truck, DELO has secured the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the ‘heaviest weight lifted with glue’.

Sealing against aggressive media, equalizing tensions between materials, conducting electricity, providing acoustic insulation or optical transparency: it is properties like these that make DELO high-tech adhesives so special and worthy of being called multi-functional materials.

•    Applied force (front bonding): 43.1 N/mm²

The Adhesive

The name of the world's strongest adhesive is DELO MONOPOX VE403728. This is a modified version of the high-temperature-resistant DELO MONOPOX HT2860. This epoxy resin forms a very dense network during heat curing. A special filler was used among other things to modify the resin properties in order to achieve the extreme strength required for the world record. This made it possible to lift a weight of 17.5 tons with only 3 grams of adhesive.
