Lap shear strength is one of the most common stresses that a bonded joint can face, especially in structural bonding applications. It is tested by measuring the ability of an adhesive system to withstand stresses set in a plane, where the exerted shear force is moving the two substrates in opposite directions. This article evaluates select Master Bond epoxies that were recently tested for their lap shear strengths on a variety of plastic substrates.
EP21ARHT: Epoxy Offers Superior Acid Resistance
EP21ARHT combines high temperature resistance with an impressive ability to withstand exposure to a variety of acids and other chemicals. It is especially noteworthy for its resistance to sulfuric and hydrochloric acids. This two part, 100% reactive epoxy is especially useful for coating tanks, pipes, scrubbers and other types of chemical processing equipment. It also features minimal linear shrinkage upon cure. This low viscosity system has a convenient two to one mix ratio by weight and cures at ambient temperatures.

EP29LPSP: Resists Cryogenic Temperatures Down to 4K
Serviceable from 4K to +275°F [4K to +135°C], EP29LPSP is a two part epoxy for bonding, sealing and coating that also meets NASA low outgassing standards. It is capable of withstanding cryogenic shocks (room temperature to liquid helium in a 5 to 10 minute time period). This optically clear system offers excellent electrical insulation properties, with a volume resistivity greater than 1015 ohm-cm. It has a low mixed viscosity of 500-1,500 cps and is frequently employed in potting and casting applications.
