Flexible, thermally-conductive, fire-retardant adhesive from Permabond

Permabond MT3836 is a two-component modified MS polymer adhesive and sealant that cures fully at room temperature and complies with the fire retardancy requirements of UL94-V0.

It contains a thermally-conductive filler, which conducts heat away from bonded components, making it ideal for use in electronics applications such as bonding heat sinks, and in electric vehicle battery applications such as bonding battery modules, where MT3836 helps to improve vehicle thermal management.

The flexible nature of MT3836 also means it is compressible, which reduces stress on sensitive components, especially if dissimilar materials are being bonded and differential thermal expansion and contraction forces put stress on the joint. The cured, flexible material absorbs impact and vibration forces and is also electrically non-conductive, says Permabond.

Permabond MT3836 is suitable for bonding a variety of different substrate materials including metals, composites, polycarbonate, ABS, nylon and other plastics.

Distributed usually in packages of six 400ml cartridges, bulk packaging is also available on request
