Epoxy adhesive introduced for food applications

The adhesives have been developed for applications in food production lines. The adhesives are suitable for such roles as bonding filter end caps and other filter components, as well as bonding mesh filter gauze and separating sieves.According to Permabond, benefits of the adhesives include a high level of toughening, which is ideal for bonding dissimilar materials. They offer good shock and impact resistance, as well as good environmental durability giving protection against liquids and cleaning fluids. They are able to bond a variety of substrate materials and are easy to apply with 1:1 mix ratios by volume. A range of viscosities are available, as well as products for gap filling. They provide high shear and peel strengths, and cure at room temperature or can be heated for a faster cure.
