Adhesives, Sealants and Coatings for Pump Applications

Master Bond adhesives, sealants, coatings protect pumps against wear, friction, galling, chemical attack and thermal/mechanical shock. They are used for assembly, repair/maintenance and field service applications. Specific grades guard against general corrosion, erosion/corrosion, pitting, localized corrosion, fretting, cavitation, stress cracking and fatigue. Products are designed to enhance mechanical efficiency, improve flow rate, reduce noise, lower energy consumption and extend pump service life.

Our line of structural adhesives, cure-in-place/form-in-place gaskets and smooth hydrophobic coatings consist of epoxies, silicones, polyurethanes, polysulfides and UV curing systems. They adhere well to elastomers, ceramics, composites, engineering plastics and metals such as stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, cast iron, bronze. These environmentally friendly, solvent free compositions are easy to apply, have convenient cure schedules and are available in small to large size units.

Rebuild, Refurbish Worn Pumps with Master Bond Epoxy Systems

Master Bond advanced epoxy compounds can be applied to internal and external pumps surfaces by trowel or brush to ensure rapid return to service. Products can cost effectively enhance pump lifespan, prevent downtime, improve reliability, increase efficiency by reconditioning parts subjected to erosion/corrosion, wear/abrasion, impact, chemical immersion, heat, etc. Room temperature curing solvent free formulations restore, rebuild, repair worn areas and protect parts from future damage, even upon exposure to aggressive service conditions. Metal and ceramic filled systems can be applied on vertical surfaces without sagging.

Examples of Pump Repair Applications for Epoxy Compounds

  • Impellers
  • Casings
  • Housings
  • Shafts
  • Valve plates
  • End covers
  • Rotors

A range of VOC free epoxy coatings can be applied in thick/thin layers to rebuild eroded parts to exact dimensions. Thermally induced stresses can be avoided with ambient curing products. Specific grades reduce frictional drag and surface tensions. This improves pump performance and lowers energy consumption. Durable, long lasting abrasion resistant linings prevent substrate degradation from coarse/fine particles and feature superior mechanical strength properties. Coatings have been developed that perform successfully under heavy wear conditions at elevated temperatures. Proper surface preparation and application techniques are essential for maximizing protection capabilities.
