Industrial Adhesives, Sealants and Coatings for the Defense IndustryMaster Bond produces custom formulated epoxy and silicone adhesives, sealants, coatings which can be used for military land-based vehicles. These tailor-made products are used for the assembly of parts, components systems that play a key role in optimizing their performance. Different grades have been developed with unique technical properties and can be utilized to replace welding, riveting, bolting. This enables vehicles to be lighter in weight, more durable, maximize fuel efficiency, increase mobility, agility, payload, speed for extended ranges. This can aid in lowering noise, absorbing vibration/impact forces.

Master Bond’s structural adhesive compositions are engineered to provide extraordinary bond strength to similar and dissimilar substrates. They can be used for adhering carbon fibers, ceramics, rubbers, many plastics, bulletproof glass, metals including high strength steel, aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, titanium alloys. Other grades effectively seal electric components, switches, sensors, relays, controllers, modules, displays. Master Bond thermal management compounds can enhance long term reliability for high speed data transmission, multi-computing, signal processing, command and control, radar, detection avoidance systems. Using these compounds to facilitate heat dissipation in confined areas is crucial to present degradation over time and thwarting failure from excess temperatures to vehicle capabilities. Additionally, silicone sealants can be automatically dispensed between metal/plastic surfaces in various configurations. They have superior dielectric strength, are designed to resist cracking at elevated temperatures and protect against moisture, dust vibration. Conductive silicone sealants shield against electromagnetic interference.
