Epoxies for Bonding Nickel Substrates

From power generation to transportation to electronics to automotive manufacturing, nickel and nickel based alloys play an important role in our economy. They offer special properties and are widely used in the assembly of a variety of products including:

  • Battery components
  • Spark plugs
  • Electronic lead wires
  • Mobile phones
  • Food preparation equipment
  • Engine turbines

Today about 3,000 nickel alloys and superalloys are available for use. They provide cost effective solutions and meet the vital needs for industry.

Nickel is hard, malleable and ductile. It conducts electricity and heat well, resists corrosion/oxidation and is magnetic at ambient temperatures. Silvery white in color, it has a melting point of 1,453°C. Additionally nickel can be electroplated on other metal parts.

Master Bond formulates one and two component epoxy adhesives for bonding nickel to nickel and nickel to dissimilar substrates. These products are designed to feature high performance capabilities and easy processing.

Consideration for Bonding Nickel Substrates - Non-Drip Viscosity

Examples of non-drip adhesives include EP13, EP21ND-LO, EP33TK and Supreme 3ANHT. High temperature resistant, no mix epoxy adhesive EP13 cures quickly at elevated temperatures. NASA low outgassing approved EP21ND-LO has a convenient, easy to use one to one mix ratio. Room temperature curing EP33TK exhibits durability, chemical resistance and thermal stability. Supreme 3ANHT offers superior heat dissipation properties, toughness and excellent electrical insulation properties.
