Industrial Adhesives, Sealants and Coatings for the Navy VesselsLeading Navy vessel contractors rely on Master Bond custom structural adhesives, sealants, coatings, and potting/encapsulation compounds for challenging requirements. These unique compositions were developed to ensure dependable, reliable, consistent, flawless performance under severe operational conditions. They can be employed for new construction, maintenance/repair and upgrading Navy ships. Products meet stringent quality control standards and augment design flexibility for engineers.

Advanced adhesive systems can be manually or automatically dispensed and offer exceptional bond strength between properly prepared similar/dissimilar substrates. This includes fiber reinforced plastics, glass reinforced plastics, composites, ceramics, rubber, metals such as steel aluminum alloys, copper alloys, tin, zinc, and titanium. Our compounds can be used in applications involving exposure to:

  • Salt water
  • Salt spray
  • Solar radiation
  • Strong winds
  • High/low temperatures
  • Deep water waves
  • Rip currents
  • Torrential rains
  • Storm surges
  • Freezing spray
  • Tropical storms
  • Wet-freeze-thaw cycles

Most significantly our environmentally friendly epoxy products provide remarkable protection from corrosion. They can be used for a wide variety of parts, components, sub-systems, systems for ocean-going combatant and noncombatant ships. Some potential examples range from pumps, connectors, heat exchangers, flow monitoring devices to rugged computer displays, audible alarms, generators, filters, material handling systems.
