Worldwide engine manufacturers rely on Master Bond structural adhesives, porosity sealants, cured-in-place and formed-in-place gasketing compounds to meet advanced requirements. Both one and two component epoxy and silicone systems are available for use. These value added products minimize wear/friction, prevent corrosion, withstand high/low temperatures, gasoline, motor oil, anti-freeze, rain and other fluids. Systems offer fast fixture speeds, have gap filling capability and can be robotically dispensed.
As technology evolves, Master Bond has been in the forefront in working with internal and external combustion engine manufacturers. From improving power output/fuel efficiency to lightweighting to limiting emissions to enhancing safety to easier service our compositions provide solutions for demanding challenges.
Markets for Master Bond adhesives and sealants in engine applications
Master Bond tough, durable, high peel strength, vibration resistant compounds are presently employed in the assembly of engines for:
- Snow blowers
- Lawn mowers
- Marine vessels
- Forestry equipment
- Utility equipment
- Recreational vehicles
- Construction equipment
Specific grades have sound dampening characteristics and help reduce heat build up. They have high bond strength to elastomers, ceramics, composites, advanced plastics and metals such as aluminum, cast iron, brass, magnesium, steel, nickel/titanium alloys. Self leveling solvent free gasketing resins can be simply applied to intricate shapes and have controlled rheology.
