Bonding stainless steel

Bonding stainless steel

Does anyone know of any good, (hopefully one part) adhesive to bond a stainless steel bracket to a piece of stainless steel sheet metal? Needs to be applied on a vertical wall at room temperature but still adhere at 30 degrees F. Wants to be able to have a shear strength of about 100 psi....

Best Adhesive - epoxy

Most important aspect to pay attention to:  the cleanliness of both surfaces (just as in painting, the three most important points are SURFACE PREPARATION, SURFACE PREPARATION, SURFACE PREPARATION).

RE: Bonding stainless steel

I've heard of an acyrlic adhesive, Pro-Poly that has a strong lap shear strength bonding to steel.  It is a two part adhesive so I'm not sure if you would be interested.  Surface preperation is key.

Try pliobond 20 or 30
works well with galv steel sheets.
