Permabond two-part epoxy adhesives are suitable for bonding a wide variety of materials. They are available with a range of different cure speeds to suit, as well as offering a high standard of performance for demanding bonding applications. They are used in virtually every industry, ranging from aerospace, automotive, electronics and electric motors, all the way to food contact applications.
Permabond 2-component epoxy adhesives will bond most engineering materials. For example, they form excellent structural bonds to a wide variety of materials, including metals, composites, wood, and even some plastics.
Epoxies are an excellent choice for high-strength structural bonding because their excellent chemical and water resistance makes them suitable for harsh environmental conditions.
Epoxies have a variety of uses in the marine, automotive, aerospace, appliance, general assembly, and construction industries. Applications are diverse, for example bonding handles onto tools, aerospace structures, kitchen countertops, motor housings, and mounting brackets.
The high strength durable bonds formed with a vast array of substrates increase the designer’s ability to choose the best substrates for the application.
These epoxies can be easily dispensed with a static mixing nozzle, with no measuring or hand mixing required. As these adhesives cure at room temperature, a heat cure is not necessary. However, for cure times faster than those stated on the technical datasheet, a heat cure will shorten the curing time.
The high shear and peel strength of the bonds, coupled with the increased stress distribution of adhesives as opposed to mechanical fasteners, greatly expands joint design possibilities.
