  • Epoxy Systems for Adhesive Applications

    Hexion’s epoxy systems for adhesive applications, which are based on a wide variety of EPIKOTE™ and EPON™ resins combined with EPIKURE™ curing agents and HELOXY™ modifiers, are well known for their strong bonding to many substrates, for their high cohesive strength and for their resistance to water, oil and many different chemicals. This makes them suitable to be used as adhesives with many different materials including metals, concrete, ceramics and glass, plastics, cloth and paper, polyesters or thermoplastic rubber. Hexion epoxy systems can be further optimized for excellent mechanical performance at extremes of temperature, and for rapid- and low-temperature cure.

    We offer epoxy system recommendations (resin, modifier and curing agent) for manufacturing adhesives for:

    • Industrial—general purpose adhesives used for bonding a variety of materials including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, wood and glass; systems with excellent price/performance ratio
    • Do-It-Yourself (DIY)—cost-efficient and universal 2-component systems for bonding a wide variety of different substrates; longer pot life or shorter curing time, good toughness and mechanical properties are achievable depending on the selected system
    • Construction and Infrastructure—bonding of concrete to concrete, metal to concrete or concrete to other substrates; examples of applications include bonding prefabricated concrete roadways, concrete pile splicing, bonding cable trays to concrete, traffic marking, and steel/concrete connections (metal fixtures to concrete structures such as rail-to-ground); tile adhesives are often considered as a special class of joint adhesives used in applications where a high degree of thermal and chemical resistance and water impermeability is required in addition to good mechanical properties
    • Chemical Anchoring—adhesive systems used to bond steel studs, large screws, bolts or rebar into a substrate (concrete, brickwork, masonry or various stones); higher mechanical properties of the cured system compared to the substrates; good chemical and stress resistance; epoxy or vinyl ester resins based systems
    • Composites & Electronics—highly specialized systems for composite-to-composite bonding and electronics assembly (e.g. chip adhesives)
    • Automotive and Aerospace—high performance systems designed for various specific applications; examples include screw fastening adhesives, hem flange adhesives in the automotive industry, adhesive promoters in PVC plastisols used for underbody protection or panel reinforcements in car components; consult with your Hexion representative for specific system requirements
