Permabond Structural Epoxies for Tarnish Free Bonding of Stainless Steel

Permabond has recently developed three two-part epoxy adhesives for high strength, tarnish free, structural bonding of stainless steel. The new products are available in convenient 1:1 dual cartridges. Once mixed via a static mixer nozzle, they cure fully at room temperature (or heat can be applied to speed-up cure). They offer excellent bond strength on stainless steel as well as on a wide variety of other metals, composites, plastics and wood.

Permabond ET5390 is a general purpose stainless steel bonder. ET5392 offers additional toughening which is important for applications where there could be high peel stress or impact forces on the joint. Permabond ET5393 is fully toughened and has excellent peel strength combined with a fast cure.

These adhesives are an effective way of joining stainless steel to itself or other materials and offer many advantages over traditional welding:

  • Better stress distribution through the joint (welding concentrates stress into a small area)
  • Improved, tarnish-free finished appearance
  • 100% seal against moisture
  • No need for a skilled welder, offering cost savings
  • No hazardous gas cylinders and fire safety hazards associated with welding offering cost savings and health and safety benefits
  • Ideal for use in ATEX explosion-proof areas where welding is not allowed

The ET539X range of adhesives offers excellent resistance to harsh environments and are highly resistant to water, temperature extremes and chemicals. They are perfect for sealing tanks and pressure vessels or for bonding stainless steel cabinets, enclosures and machinery housing.
