KB 1040-2

Product Description
Kohesi Bond KB 1040-2 is a two component, room temperature curing epoxy system suitable for bonding, sealing, coating and encapsulating applications. It has a favorable 10:1 (Part A: Part B) mix ratio by weight. The highlight of this products is its superior optical clarity and its capability of passing NASA low outgassing test. In addition, this product offers very good flow properties, allowing it to be applied in extremely thin layers. This epoxy system readily cures at room temperature and can achieve faster cures at elevated temperatures. The optimal cure schedule is an overnight room temperature set-up followed by a heat cure at 70°C – 90°C for 3 – 5 hours.

KB 1040-2 can be serviced cryogenically. It offers an extensive serviceable temperature range of 4K (-269.15°C) to +150°C. It is a phenomenal adhesive that offers outstanding physical strength properties. KB 1040-2 adheres well to a wide variety of substrates including metals, ceramics, most plastics and glass. In addition to superior electrical insulation and dimensional stability, it also offers astounding chemical resistance to a variety of acids, bases, solvents, fuels, oils and water. This unique product’s vacuum compatibility, light transmission capability and strength makes it ideal for use in aerospace, electronics, optical, fiber-optic and various OEM applications.
