Most Popular Reworkable Adhesive Systems
- A flexible epoxy/urethane blend, used for potting and encapsulation applications. Material is abrasion resistant and easily repairable.
- MasterSil 151
- Two part, room temperature curing, optically clear, low viscosity silicone system. Features a wide service temperature range of -65°F to +400°F. Generally used for potting and encapsulation applications. Excellent reworkability.
- Highly flexible, two part, room temperature curing epoxy. Bonds well to most rubbers and is serviceable from -100°F to +250°F. Can be removed using mechanical means such as an utility knife or a razor blade.
- Environmentally safe, water soluble, one part system. Thermal stability up to +1,500°F. Outstanding strength, dimensional stability and electrical insulation properties. Completely odorless, non-toxic and non-flammable. Cures obtained at moderately elevated temperatures.
- One component, low viscosity system. Easily removable upon exposure to most conventional solvents such as acetone and MEK. Cures rapidly upon exposure to UV light at room temperature. Withstands vibration, shock and thermal cycling. Service operating temperature range of -60°F to +250°F.
