Water Resistant Adhesive Systems

For structural adhesives that resist exposure to water, humidity and steam, Master Bond offers a complete line of epoxies, silicones, polyurethanes, polysulfides and UV curable adhesives. Many specific epoxy grades are formulated to resist liquid and vapor exposure in both tap and salt water without degradation of bond strength, even at elevated temperatures.

Master Bond's database of chemical immersion tests extends up to 10 years

Important Performance Properties for Master Bond Water Resistant Structural Adhesives

We make specific grades of water resistant systems with enhanced performance properties, including but not limited to:

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Vibration, shock, impact and thermal cycling resistance
  • Extraordinary chemical resistance

Additionally, they are available for use in a range of viscosities and hardness, cure speeds and colors.

Adequate product protection is essential to prevent premature failure from moisture. Systems are engineered to maintain their physical strength properties, prevent degradation at the substrate adhesive interface, while providing effective sealing capability. These durable polymeric products have been developed to address specific needs and susceptibility to moisture attack which can cause rupturing, delamination, swelling, cracking, shrinkage, blistering. They effectively mitigate corrosion, have superior resistance to water permeation, adhere well to multiple substrates and provide long term durability after aging. These user friendly, solvent free compositions can withstand a combination of stress, moisture, temperature. Select grades have successfully demonstrated leak proof deployment on metallic substrates in hostile marine environments.
