Master Bond offers a wide variety of one or two part epoxy impregnation systems that cure to tough, strong thermoset plastics. These products are used in the mechanical and electronic applications to seal porosity in porous substrates, both metals and nonmetals. Sealing materials with Master Bond impregnation resins can increase efficiency, save time, and is cost effective. This process improves the performance of the part and allows for the use of parts that would have otherwise been ineffective. Master Bond's impregnation resins are also applied as matrix materials in the assembly of composites, such as glass reinforced plastic or carbon fiber reinforced plastic.
Master Bond's impregnation compounds can withstand the most adverse environmental conditions, and they are therefore superb for sealing materials subjected to extreme temperatures, impact, vibration, or chemicals. As matrix materials for composites, these products withstand the harsh environmental conditions of the assembly process. Specific grades offer resistance to cryogenic temperatures or temperatures up to 500°F, as well as excellent resistance to thermal and mechanical shock.

Impregnation Resins for Vacuum Impregnation
When metal castings contain defects, such as cracks and pores, these parts must be subjected to vacuum impregnation in order to prevent leaks. In wet vacuum impregnation, the most common technique, the part is immersed in an impregnation resin and placed in a processing tank. After a vacuum is drawn in the tank to remove air and moisture, the increased pressure forces the sealant into the pores. The resin cures in the pores and eliminates the porosity of the part.
Master Bond's impregnation compounds are ideal sealants for vacuum impregnations. They offer resistance to vacuum treatment, high temperatures, and feature incredibly low viscosity. These compounds will provide an excellent sealing and will enhance the integrity of parts that would have otherwise been scrapped. Master Bond's impregnation systems offer a cost effective and easy solution to sealing porosity of porous materials.
