What are Elastometric Adhesives?

Elastomeric adhesives exhibit excellent bonding characteristics while providing a tough, waterproof bond that will not crack or become brittle. They outperform silicones, acrylics, and rubber cements with greater strength, durability, and surface versatility.

Resistant to a wide-variety of chemicals and environments, elastomeric adhesives are impervious to dilute acids and dilute caustics and can be submerged in fresh or salt water once they are completely cured. Elastomerics are great for bonding objects subject to wear due to abrasion resistance. With temperature environmental ranges between minus 40 degrees Celsius to 150 degrees Celsius, elastomerics remain flexible in all weather conditions, and can be painted to match surrounding surfaces.

Advanced Strength
Elastomeric adhesives offer advanced strength characteristics including tensile strength up to 3500 psi. Peel strength is also superior ranging from 30 psi on thermoplastic rubber to 40 psi on glass. Electric dielectric strength is up to 400 volts/mil.

Applications of Use

Applications for elastomeric adhesives range from bonding lead wires to loudspeakers, mounting wires to diamond wafers, sealing tanks and pipes as well as repairing conveyor belts.
