Adhesive is serviceable at cryogenic temperatures

An elastomer system, just released by Master Bond, offers the strength, flexibility, performance, and adhesive qualities traditionally associated with epoxies, along with the toughness and abrasion resistance of polyurethanes.

EP30D-10 is a two component adhesive that is resistant to thermal cycling and chemicals including water, inorganic salts, acids and alkalis.

The adhesive has been successfully used in numerous cryogenic applications. It cures at room temperature or more rapidly at elevated temperatures. Parts more than an inch thick can be cast and cured without undue exothermic development. Featuring excellent electrical insulation properties and optical clarity, the product can be used in casting and encapsulation applications in the electronics, aerospace, OEM, MRO and optical industries.

Once cured, this flexible system develops a tensile strength of 1,500 psi and an elongation exceeding 150% at 75°F. It bonds well to a variety of substrates including, metals, wood, concrete, glass, vulcanized rubbers, and many plastics. The product is 100% reactive and does not contain any solvents or diluents and is formulated to cure with minimal shrinkage.
