HIGHLIGHTS

MT-13®

MT-13®

MT-13®

Widely used by the boating industry for assembly and general repair. MT‑13® is a two component epoxy adhesive cement which is mixed in equal parts by volume (100A/123B by weight) and gels in a few hours for applications requiring maximum holding power and water resistance. It adheres extremely well to both porous and non-porous surfaces.

Metalset® A4

Aluminum Filled Epoxy Adhesive

Metalset® A4

Metalset® A4

Aluminum Filled Epoxy Adhesive

Used for years by all branches of the U.S. Military as well as every major airline and auto manufacturer in the world. Metalset® A4 is used for hundreds of industrial bonding applications, can be applied to vertical surfaces without sagging, and offers good machining qualities (sanding, drilling, tapping), resists alkalies, dilute acids and solvents. Applications include stopping leaks in pipes, valves and tanks (i.e. car gas tanks), bonding like and unlike surfaces, filling metal joints, dents, etc., anchoring bolts in wood, concrete, and repairing metal surfaces.

EA-40®

Transparent Laminating Epoxy Adhesive

EA-40®

EA-40®

Transparent Laminating Epoxy Adhesive

Clear, unfilled, low-viscosity epoxy adhesive that can be spread easily in thin films that are almost transparent after curing. Can be used for many different assembly and repair applications ranging from electrical potting to jewelry assembly to repairing plumbing fixtures. Bow makers have come to know EA‑40® as a tremendous laminating resin. EA‑40® provides highly moisture resistant bonds meeting the performance requirements for Federal Specification MMM-A-188, Type III.

Super Instant®

Rapid Bonding Epoxy Adhesive

Super Instant®

Super Instant®

Rapid Bonding Epoxy Adhesive

Two component, clear adhesive designed to provide rapid bonding. When mixed in equal proportions - either by volume or by weight - curing takes place quickly enough to permit handling in 5 to 10 minutes at room temperature. Super Instant® adheres to metals such as steel, aluminum and brass, to wood, glass, masonry and many hard plastics.

PC-3®

Laboratory Tabletop Epoxy Adhesive

PC-3®

PC-3®

Laboratory Tabletop Epoxy Adhesive

Two-component, black epoxy resin compound designed to join, bond and caulk sections of laboratory counters and tables. The epoxy resin cement is heavily filled, contains no volatile solvents, will adhere to vertical surfaces without sagging, and sets at room temperature with extremely low shrinkage. PC‑3® resists solvents and dilute acids and bonds strongly to natural and artificial stones, most metals, glass, wood and to thermosetting resins such as polyester, phenolic and epoxy.
