Epoxy adhesives consist of an epoxy resin and a hardener. With many resins and different hardeners to choose from, they allow great versatility in formulation. They also form extremely strong durable bonds with most materials. Epoxy adhesives are available in one-component or two-component form and can be supplied as flowable liquids, as highly thixotropic products with gap filling capability of up to 25 mm, as films or even in powder form.

Why choose one-component epoxy adhesives ?

  • Excellent adhesion to metals, thermoset and thermoplastic composites
  • Outstanding lap shear strength and peel strength
  • High fatigue resistance
  • Very high impact resistance
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Easy processing

Why choose two-component epoxy adhesives ?

  • Excellent adhesion to metals and thermoset composites
  • High strength and high stiffness
  • High creep resistance
  • High fatigue resistance
  • High temperature resistance (adhesive specific up to 260°C)
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Low shrinkage

A wide range of epoxy applicators are available in the market that make it easy to dispense epoxies properly and easily. These include manual, pneumatic & battery operated models.
