Master Bond EP15 High Tensile Strength Adhesive

Master Bond EP15 produces high strength bonds across a wide variety of applications. It is primarily used for testing the adhesion or cohesive strength of flame sprayed coatings, which is detailed in the ASTM C633 specification. This one component epoxy bonds particularly well to metals and ceramics, along with many similar and dissimilar substrates.

Featuring a tensile strength exceeding 12,000 psi at room temperature, this 100% reactive system offers superior dimensional stability with minimal shrinkage upon cure. It is serviceable from -60° F to 250° F. EP15 has excellent chemical resistance properties and withstands thermal cycling.

As a one part system, EP15 features an unlimited working life and does not require any mixing prior to use. This system offers good flow properties with a viscosity of 40,000-65,000 cps and can be easily applied with a brush, paint roller or spatula. It cures quickly in 60-90 minutes at 300-350° F. The parts to be bonded should then be clamped together with just enough pressure to maintain intimate contact during cure.

The standard color for this epoxy is tan and it is available in many sizes, including ½ pint, pint, quart, gallon, and 5 gallon containers. Master Bond EP15 has a minimum shelf life of 3 months when stored in original, opened containers.
