Epoxy Aremco Bond 2310
Armed against Heat
Kager Industrieprodukte GmbH, Dietzenbach, Germany, has developed a high-temperature two-component epoxy system with ceramic components for bonding plastics. Epoxy Aremco Bond 2310 achieves durable bonds that can withstand mechanical loads and is suitable for use with commodity and engineering as well as fiber-reinforced resins, especially when the bonded parts must withstand (changing) temperatures within a range of -55 to 165°C in use. According to information from the manufacturer, the adhesive exhibits high shear and tear-off strength after curing (tensile/shear strength of 334 kg/cm2 ). The flexural strength is 840 kg/cm2 . Contact resistance measures 3.0 x 1,013 W/cm and the dielectric strength is 16.4 kV/mm. In addition, the two-component adhesive is chemical-resistant and waterproof; autoclave applications are also possible. Very good adhesion is achieved when the surfaces are pretreated, for instance, by means of physical plasma treatment, chemical etching or flaming. Depending on the material pair, cure times range from two hours in a 65°C environment to 48 h at room temperature. This adhesive technology is ideally suited for high-strength joints such as those required in the automotive and aerospace as well as the electronic industries.
