Metal bonding adhesive replaces rivets and spot welds

Designed to replace rivets and spot welds in metal lap joints, Master Bond's structural adhesive Supreme 11HT produces high strength bonds with good shear and peel strengths.

This metal bonding adhesive is formulated for service from - 100°F to over 400°F.

It offers superior resistance to impact, thermal shock, vibration and fatigue cracking, while also maintaining moisture, creep, corrosion and thermal resistance. This two part metal bonding epoxy offers a relatively fast cure at room temperature, or a more rapid cure at elevated temperatures. Being 100% reactive, the adhesive does not contain any diluents, solvents or any hazardous ingredients.

The product's high strength bonds are resistant to chemicals including fuels, water, oil and many organic solvents, even upon prolonged exposures. Significant metal bonding strength characteristics include tensile shear strength in excess of 2,300 PSI and a high T-peel strength. Adhesion to brass, aluminium, Nitenol, glass, ceramics, vulcanized rubbers and many plastics is excellent. The hardened adhesive is a superior electrical insulator. Its imposing performance profile qualifies Supreme 11HT metal adhesive for use in difficult applications in the aerospace, electronic, electrical, appliance, automotive and chemical industries.
