Epoxy Chemistry and Formulations - Part 2
On Demand Webinars
This webinar will give a thorough overview on how additives can be incorporated into epoxy adhesives to achieve specific properties. Reducing the cure time and temperature for one component heat cured epoxy adhesives is critical and the use of accelerators to achieve this will be discussed. Epoxy adhesives must be tough and durable, and the use of different toughener chemistries will be presented to achieve a tough adhesives with minimal impact on other properties of the adhesive. Bonding to different substrates and oily and poorly prepared substrates is often a challenge in epoxy adhesives, and different additives designed to improve adhesion will be reviewed.
E-mobility is a growing area for two-component epoxy adhesives, with thermal conductivity being an important property, and additives to improve thermal conductivity and their effect on epoxy adhesives will be discussed. Finally, additives to improve the flame retardancy of epoxy adhesives will be examined.
Detailed information on accelerators for one component heat cured epoxy adhesives
Technologies and methodologies for toughening different types of epoxy adhesives
Improving adhesion through the use of additives
Additives for improving thermal conductivity for e-mobility applications
