Polymer Adhesive has flexible, low-viscosity formula.

Press Release Summary:



Designed for bonding, sealing, and casting engineering plastics and metals, EP40 cures at ambient or elevated temperatures with 1:1 mix ratio by weight or volume. Flexible, 2-component epoxy resin compound is resistant to thermal cycling as well as mechanical vibration and shock. Shear and peel strengths for bonding polycarbonates are 1000 psi and 20 pli, respectively, while steel and aluminum bonds yield shear strength values up to 1,800 and 1,500 psi.

Master Bond Introduces Flexible Epoxy Resin Compound EP40 with Unexcelled Shear/Peel Strength For High Performance Bonding, Sealing and Casting To Engineering Plastics And Metals!

Hackensack, NJ. February 20, 2006 - Master Bond has successfully developed a new highly flexible two component epoxy resin compound called EP40 which features outstanding shear and peel strength especially designed for bonding, sealing and casting engineering plastics and metals. This compound has been formulated to cure readily at ambient or more quickly at elevated temperatures with a convenient non-critical one (1) to one (1) mix ratio, weight or volume. The Master Bond Polymer System EP40 has been found to provide an excellent solution for applications requiring the inherently attractive strength properties of epoxy resins together with enhanced flexibility and peel strength characteristics. Additional desirable performance characteristics of this unique epoxy compound include superior resistance to thermal cycling and mechanical vibration and shock. Electrical insulation properties are excellent even after prolonged exposure to hostile environmental conditions.

The Master Bond Polymer System EP40's low viscosity facilitates bonding, sealing, casting and other processing operations. The availability of versatile cure schedules further simplifies the application of this unique polymer compound. The excellent adhesion of EP40 to a wide variety of substrates ranging from engineering plastics such as polycarbonates, acrylics and ABS to steel, aluminum and other metals is particularly noteworthy. Thus shear and peel strength for bonding polycarbonates are in the order of 1000psi and 20 pli respectively while steel and aluminum bonds yielded shear strength values as high as 1800 and 1500 psi. Master Bond polymer System EP40 has an impressively wide service temperature range of -100°F to +230°F. The Master Bond EP40 compound is the preferred choice for many electronic potting and encapsulation applications, two component adhesives and sealants, coatings and composite uses wherever substrates with different thermal expansion properties must be combined to form electronic and/or mechanical assemblies.
