Master Bond manufactures industrial adhesives, sealants, coatings and encapsulation compounds with properties that are successfully used in a wide range of power technology, renewable energy, and oil and gas processing applications. Specific grades offer corrosion resistance, the ability to withstand vibration and shock, optical clarity, electrical insulation, and resistance to moisture or extreme temperatures. Applications that these systems are used in include fuel cells, hydropower devices, wind turbines and solar panels.
Master Bond specialises in the production of one-part and two-part epoxies, silicones and UV/LED curing compounds. These materials feature outstanding performance properties and meet engineers’ specific application requirements for use in various power industries. We have more than 3,000 formulations and have been in business since 1975. Select grades are tested to comply with rigorous industry certifications. All products are made fresh and sold direct.
Structural adhesives for the renewable energy sector
Master Bond epoxies can be successfully used in wind turbine blade assemblies, solar panels, hydropower applications and more.
Compared to other adhesives, epoxies are often stronger and more durable, making them suitable for structural uses. They promote high mechanical strength attributes, high-performance dimensional stability, lightweight features and high-quality adhesion to similar and dissimilar substrates.
Often providing excellent chemical and temperature resistance, epoxies typically exhibit a very wide working temperature range.
Adhesives for fuel cells
Master Bond develops adhesives and sealants for the varied needs of companies that manufacture fuel cells. We have made continual improvements in chemical resistant properties as well as in tensile, shear and impact resistance in metal and plastic bonding applications. Epoxy adhesives are designed to meet the special performance requirements for both stationary and portable fuel cells. Sealants that prevent air leakage and moisture diffusion have also played an integral role in the introduction of new systems with enhanced capabilities.
Master Bond products are formulated to the highest quality standards. Compliance testing has been conducted by well-established independent testing laboratories, in addition to US government agencies.
