Creating new innovations in high-strength bonding

  • Traditional one-part epoxies are rigid adhesives, often requiring a high-temperature thermal cure which results in outstanding strength at elevated temperatures. They are the most environmentally durable adhesives, standing up to extremes of heat, cold, humidity, many solvents and other conditions.

    Innovations in one-part epoxy adhesives are creating more diverse portfolios, with formulations that cure at lower temperatures for greater flexibility and impact resistance. These innovative chemistries are also more conducive to bonding engineered plastics, leading to applications spanning from consumer electronics to military and aerospace.

    Two-part epoxy adhesives have similar environmental resistance but involve two components which cure upon mixing rather than thermally.


  • Discover the Important Attributes of One-Part Epoxy Adhesives


Strength

Epoxies have the greatest strength and durability of all structural adhesives

Bonding

Structural adhesives bond dissimilar materials and also provide insulation to resist corrosion when bonding two different metals

Process Efficiency

Different chemistries provide a variety of surface preparation, open time and strength-build times so you can find the best options for your process

Impact Resistance

Epoxy bonds have exceptional resistance to shock, vibration and impact loads

Lightweighting

Adhering to new materials and distributing stress along the entire bond area helps designers use thinner and lighter materials

NVH

Vibration resistance reduces opportunities for unwanted noise

Aesthetics

Structural adhesives provide better product appearance through invisible joints and smooth bond lines

Water Intrusion

Structural adhesives provide a continuous bond line to prevent the migration of fluids, dust and dirt

Innovation in Design

The ability of structural adhesives to bond a wide variety of substrates allows the freedom to design for the best materials available
