Aramid-reinforced epoxy - Master Bond Inc.

June 21, 2010
The rigid, impact-resistant epoxy maintains dimensions over a wide temperature range.

EP30R aramid-fiber-reinforced, two-part epoxy adhesive bonds metals, glass, ceramics, vulcanized rubbers and many plastics between -60 and 250°F. It is dimensionally stable with cure shrinkage of only 0.0003 in./in. The epoxy resists damage from impact, thermal cycling, and chemicals and is electrically insulative.
The high-viscosity adhesive cures at room temperature or more rapidly at elevated temperatures. Full bond strength develops with contact pressure only, and the adhesive is 100% reactive with no solvents or other volatiles.
