Structural Adhesives - Resist Vibration, Impact and Shock

Master Bond one and two component structural adhesives offer remarkable bond strength to similar and dissimilar substrates.

Toughened, two component, room temperature curing epoxy EP21TDCHT has a convenient one to one mix ratio. Cure speed can be accelerated by the use of heat. EP21TDCHT features high physical strength properties, superior durability and chemical resistance. T-peel strength is 30 pli and tensile strength is > 3,500 psi. Elongation after cure is > 20% and Shore D hardness is > 60. Tensile modulus is 175,000 psi. Service operating temperature for this compound is -100°F to +350°F.

Master Bond EP21TDCHT has superb electrical insulation properties. Volume resistivity is 1014 ohm cm. Adhesion to similar and dissimilar substrates is excellent. It is particularly well suited for bonding substrates with different coefficients of expansion and contraction. Bonds can withstand exposure to thermal cycling and mechanical vibration, impact and shock.
