Why use a toughened epoxy vs a standard epoxy?
Standard epoxy adhesives can have too high of a hardness and can be too rigid or brittle for many applications. This can be due to dissimilar bonding substrates or large temperature ranges. Standard epoxies tend to crack or even delaminate under adverse conditions. Toughened epoxies are formulated to be flexible, offer high strength, crack resistant adhesive with good chemical and moisture resistance.
Where would you use a toughened epoxy adhesive?
Most commonly used within automotive, aerospace, electronics, construction, and manufacturing industries. Toughened epoxy structural adhesives are used for applications including magnet bonding, metal bonding, multiple surface bonding, NVH – noise, vibration, and harshness reduction, plastic and composite bonding, and potting and encapsulating, among many other applications.
Best toughened epoxy adhesive for bonding aluminium
LOCTITE® EA 9461 2-component adhesive. Aluminium provides its own set of challenges, and proper preparation to remove oxide build-up before application is key. most LOCTITE® EA 9461 ensures strong bonds and impact resistance for a range of aluminium alloys. The adhesives thixotropic properties make it good for gap filling and it provides both high peel and shear strength.
Larger pack sizes for volume gluing?
Loctite toughened epoxy adhesives are supplied in convenient 50ml cartridges, which on the whole meet the requirements for many assembly manufacturing applications. However, larger packages such as 20 litre or 200 litre for high-volume dispensing and automated assembly operations. Call our sales office 0161 627 1001 for more details
