Platinum is a precious, silvery-white metal known for its wear, corrosion and high temperature resistance properties. It is dense, malleable and ductile. Non-toxic and biocompatible, it is employed in many medical applications. Platinum has a melting point of 1,722°C. It is frequently used in:
- Catalytic converters
- Laboratory vessels
- Dentistry equipment
- Ceramic capacitors
- Jet engine fuel nozzles
- Automotive spark plugs
- Oxygen sensors
Consideration for Bonding Platinum Substrates
Ultra high strength, two part epoxy adhesive that bonds well to most metals and plastics. Aluminum to aluminum lap shear strength exceeds 4,000 psi. T-peel strength >50 pli. Ambient temperature curing. Tough and resilient bonds. Combines low viscosity and optical clarity. Serviceable from -60°F to +250°F. Chemical resistant. First class electrical insulator.
Two component epoxy paste adhesive. Resists sterilization exposure. USP Class VI approved. Outstanding thermal stability and electrical insulation properties. Cures at ambient temperatures. Withstands multiple cycles of autoclaving, radiation, EtO and chemical sterilants. Post curing is recommended to optimize physical properties. Serviceable from -60°F to +450°F.
Epoxy-urethane blend. Superior toughness and abrasion resistance. Biocompatible. Cryogenically serviceable. Low viscosity. Low moisture absorption and hydrolytic stability. USP Class VI approved. Serviceable from 4k to +250°F. Outstanding electrical insulation properties. Withstands thermal cycling. High impact strength.
Optically clear, elastomeric system. Urethane modified epoxy. 100% reactive. Serviceable from -100°F to 220°F. Long working life. Resistant to thermal cycling. High impact strength. Outstanding flexibility. Protects against abrasion. Minimal linear shrinkage upon cure. Low moisture permeability.
