FLEXIBLE EPOXY RESIN COMPOUND
Master Bond has developed a flexible two component epoxy resin compound called EP40 said to feature outstanding shear and peel strength and is designed for bonding, sealing and casting engineering plastics and metals. The compound has been formulated to cure readily at ambient or more quickly at elevated temperatures with a non-critical 1:1 mix ratio by weight or volume.
The adhesion of the compound to a wide variety of substrates ranging from engineering plastics, such as polycarbonates, acrylics and ABS to steel, aluminum and other metals is said to be particularly noteworthy. Shear and peel strength for bonding polycarbonates are in the order of 1000 psi and 20 pli respectively, while steel and aluminum bonds yielded shear strength values as high as 1800 and 1500 psi. EP40 has an impressively wide service temperature range of -100¬∞ to 230¬∞F.
