One-Package Adhesive
EPON Resin 828 / Dicyandiamide
SC: 2053-03 Introduction Re-issued: July 2004

This is a simple one-package epoxy adhesive especially suited for metal -- metal bonding which will yield a shelf life of at least 6 months at 25C. One Pack Economical Service temperature up to 150C Cost sensitive applications where a one-component adhesive is desired and the substrate to be bonded are capable of withstanding the high temperature cure conditions.

Mixing Instructions

Evenly disperse all components in the EPON Resin 828, and then pass the compound over a three-roll paint mill for two cycles. Alternatively, a high speed mixer (such as Cowles) can be used; however, care should be taken to keep temperature as low as possible. Temperature should be kept below 45C (115F). This formulation is a basic starting point and can be modified with other filler types, such as talc, clay, alumina, ground silica, wollastonite, or calcium carbonate.

All surfaces to be bonded should be clean and free of dust, dirt, grease, oil or other contaminants. For optimum adhesion it is recommended to roughen bonding surfaces. This can be accomplished with abrasive media appropriate for the materials being bonded (such as medium grit emery paper, abrasive disks, grit blasting, wire brushes, etc.) Abrasion should always be followed by degreasing to remove contaminants and loose particles. Chemical etching is another method to provide a rough surface for improved adhesion. Apply by spreading a thin film approximately 0.005 inch thick over the surface to be bonded. Maintain light pressure during cure for optimum bonding.

Cure 1.5 to 2 hours @ 350F It is important to note that this is not a tensile shear test, but a pure tensile test; that is, the specimens are butted together and after the adhesive has cured, the specimens are tested by applying a force perpendicular to the glue line. The thickness of the glue line is 10 15 mils.
