Tough Epoxy Polysulfide Adhesive Resists High Temperatures

It resists temperatures up to 350°F, much higher than typical epoxy polysulfide systems. This room temperature curable adhesive also features convenient handling characteristics with a 1 to 1 mix ratio by weight or volume and an easily flowable mixed viscosity of 5,000-15,000 cps.

EP21TPHT offers a high lap shear strength of 1,600-1,800 psi and bonds well to a variety of substrates including metals, composites, glass, ceramics, and many rubbers. It is a toughened compound with good elongation of 20-40%, and a relatively low tensile modulus of 30,000-50,000 psi at room temperature. This combination of properties makes it suitable for applications involving thermal cycling and mechanical stresses.
