No. 4018 High Strength Room Temperature or Heat Cure Adhesive
EPON Resin 828 and EPON Resin 58034/EPIKURE Curing Agent 3072
Re-issued: September 2003

SC: 2049-03 Introduction

This moderate reactivity, rubber modified epoxy adhesive is intended as a general purpose formulation, characterized by development of high bond strengths to a variety of substrates including metals, plastics, concrete and glass. In addition, this formulation adapts itself very well to cure schedules requiring heat and pressure. Rubber modified for improved peel strength and toughness Large cure temperature range: Room temperature to 125C (257F) Adhesion to a wide range of substrates Applications requiring higher performance than standard epoxy adhesives, especially improved peel strength and toughness. Adhesion is good with metals, ceramics, glass, wood and polar thermoplastics such as polystyrene, ABS and polycarbonate. Supplier Pounds 80.0 20.0 100.0 32.0 Gallons 8.25 2.38 10.63 3.95

Mixing Instructions

Part A 1. Introduce EPON Resin 828 into mixing vessel and begin agitation. Pre-heating is not necessary but heating to 49C (120F) will facilitate blending, especially with high shear mixers. Either high shear or planetary mixers should disperse adequately. 2. While mixing, add and disperse EPON Resin 58034 until uniform blend is obtained. Part B 1. No mixing required, unless fillers are to be added. This formulation is a basic starting point and can be modified with a large range of commercial fillers, depending on cost/performance requirements. Pigment may be incorporated into either or both portions for the purpose of color coding. As with all pigments, their effect on the performance of the final, cured product should be investigated prior to production approval.

Application Instructions

All surfaces to be bonded should be clean and free of dust, dirt, grease, oil or other contaminants to ensure maximum adhesion. Sandblasting or acid etching are the preferred procedures for preparing metal surfaces. Abrasion of the bonded surfaces in combination with vapor degreasing or solvent wiping are other common preparation methods.
