Insulcast: Flame-Retardant Adhesive

April 17, 2000
This company has released Insulbond 865, a fast-setting, 1:1-mix epoxy adhesive system that meets UL 94-V-0 burn-test requirements. It is ideally suited for electronics, product-assembly and aircraft applications where automatic dispensing of a fast-curing, flame-retardant epoxy adhesive is necessary. Parts A and B are supplied in contrasting colors. Once they are mixed completely, a uniform, gray color will form. The product has a pot life of five to 10 minutes, with full cure in 24 hours. It offers high strength and flexibility, enabling it to bond to a wide variety of substrates, including most plastics, metals, ceramics, paper, wood and rubber materials.
