Zyvex Performance Materials (ZPM), have launched their new line of two part epoxy adhesives, called Epovex Adhesive. The new adhesive is designed to be a replacement for existing aerospace grade adhesives.

According to the company, its laboratory tests have shown superior T-Peel and shear strength of Epovex Adhesives in composite to composite bonds, composite to metal bonds, and composite to wood bonds. It also says that independent testing showed that its Epovex Adhesive demonstrated 50% greater performance in T-Peel strength (ASTM D1876) and a 15% improvement in shear strength (ASTM D1002).

This new line of adhesives is available in quart (3.5 lbs) and gallon (14 lbs) kits. For higher volume and industrial customers, five gallon (72 lbs) and fifty-five gallon (720 lbs) kits are available. ZPM’s US distributors will be also be offering Epovex Adhesives to their customers and new clients.

“Epovex Adhesive is a second generation nano-enhanced product. Not only does this adhesive offer superior performance, but our technology also helps reduce costs,” said ZPM President, Lance Criscuolo. “Companies that are using expensive aerospace grade adhesives can now buy a better product that costs 30% less, and is backed with better service and distribution,” Criscuolo added.

“Our molecular-engineered products and technology are the solution to the roadblock of current materials’ limitations,” said Product Development Engineer Fred Meyer. “By using Epovex Adhesives, our customers will experience fewer secondary bond failures and save money at the same time.”
