Advanced adhesive technology is playing a pivotal role in the use of lightweight materials in high-tech applications. Cost effective opportunities have emerged for joining heavily stressed structures with different thermal expansion coefficients. From wind power to aviation to rail vehicle components to robots to trucks Master Bond bonding compounds offer engineers flexible design solutions. Our products have enabled companies to lower manufacturing expenses, change part geometry and improve profitability.

Specific Master Bond adhesive systems have been formulated to provide outstanding bond strength between similar and dissimilar substrates including the following lightweight substrates:

  • Aluminum
  • Fiber-reinforced composites
  • Metal matrix composites
  • Ceramics
  • Advanced steels
  • Magnesium
  • Titanium
  • Carbon nanotubes
  • Engineering plastics
Adhesives for Lightweighting Applications Lightweighting has enabled manufacturers to assemble products that offer:
  • Improved safety
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Lower operating costs
  • Higher strength properties
  • Reduced size
  • Enhanced aesthetics
  Durable, toughened, high performance one and two part epoxy systems offer superior corrosion resistance and provide protection against high temperatures. Specific grades feature sound dampening, excellent mechanical properties, outstanding electrical insulation and gap filling capability. Systems can be applied with manual, semi-automatic and automatic dispensers.

Newly developed formulations exhibit improved aging characteristics, high Tg, shorter fixture times and extended shelf life at ambient temperatures. Additionally system viscosity can be adjusted to optimize processing requirements.
