High Temperature Epoxy
Definition - What does High Temperature Epoxy mean?
High temperature epoxy is an epoxy which possesses properties necessary to withstand high temperatures. Some are cured at room temperature, while some are cured at high temperatures. It is used primarily in adhesive and coatings. It can also be used for composite parts and structures due to its resistance to high temperatures.
In addition to the ability to withstand high temperatures, high temperature epoxy also exhibits chemical resistance as well as less potential for corrosion.
Corrosionpedia explains High Temperature Epoxy
High temperature epoxy is suitable for aggressive chemical conditions and applications where very high physical strength is needed. Some epoxy shows better electrical properties and chemical resistance when cured at high temperatures.
Encapsulates made from this epoxy are extremely resistant to marine environments, humidity and corrosive chemicals. This can be used in protecting electronic components in extremely harsh environments with high temperature in industries such as:
- Industrial control equipment
Equipment and tooling instruments made from high temperature resin are necessary in operating under high-temperature conditions. If high temperature resin is used along with a high-temperature surface coat, they produce tough, durable and high-heat-resistant equipment.
High temperature epoxy consists of hardener and resin. These components are mixed to produce structural adhesive. This epoxy is resistant to chemicals like sulfuric acid, which is highly corrosive. It is also used as a structural adhesive and a bond for bearing weight.
