Adhesives for Bonding Ceramic SubstratesAn extensive variety of one and two component adhesive systems are available to bond ceramic substrates. They offer high strength bonds in adhering ceramic to ceramic substrates and ceramic to dissimilar substrates. Specific grades feature high and low temperature serviceability, outstanding chemical resistance and fast cures.

Types of Adhesives for Bonding Ceramic Substrates

Master Bond adhesive systems offer different performance and processing properties to meet specific requirements. They are available in the following chemistries:

  • Epoxies
  • Silicones
  • Polyurethanes
  • Polysulfides
  • Cyanoacrylates
  • UV cures

For more information on bonding ceramic substrates please read our recommended surface preparation procedure.

Frequently, ceramics are bonded to dissimilar substrates. When exposed to thermal cycling, the use of a flexible adhesive is often recommended. This type of compound will be better able to compensate for the different coefficients of expansion and contraction encountered during service.

Enhanced Performance Properties of Adhesives for Ceramic Substrates

  • High peel strength
  • Low outgassing
  • Cryogenic serviceability
  • Optical clarity
  • High glass transition temperature (Tg)
  • Low stress
  • Solvent resistance
