No. 4010 Equal Volume Adhesive – Bonds to Oily Surfaces
EPON™ Resin 828/HELOXY™ Modifier 505/EPIKURE™ Curing Agents 3125 and 3271
Re-issued: August 2003

SC: 2041-03 Introduction

The equal volume combining ratio of this adhesive facilitates proportioning in the field and reduces the effect of small measuring errors on cured state properties. Good adhesion to metal surfaces which have not been specially prepared is the primary feature of this formulation. Maximum bonding strength is obtained on freshly cleaned substrates, usually within 24 hours at normal room temperature. Good adhesion to polystyrene foam, paper honeycomb and other low density insulating materials suggests use in sandwich panel construction. • • • • One-to-one mix ratio by volume Tolerance to trace amounts of residual oil on metal bond surfaces 40 minute room temperature gel time (180 grams) Bonding of metals at room temperature. Also bonds well to wood, concrete, ceramics and many rigid plastics.
