KB 1040

Product Description
Kohesi Bond KB 1040 is a two component, room temperature curing epoxy system suitable for bonding, sealing, potting and encapsulation. It has a favorable 4:1 (Part A: Part B) mix ratio by weight. This unique epoxy system offers remarkable adhesion to a variety of substrates, such as metals, glass, ceramics, most plastics and rubbers. It 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 1 – 2 hours.

KB 1040 is optically clear and offers top notch light transmissions properties. It has a refractive index of 1.56. It offers an extensive serviceable temperature range of -50°C to +120°C. This phenomenal adhesive fosters outstanding physical strength properties as well as dimensional stability. It offers minimal shrinkage upon cure. This makes it suitable for gap filling applications. In addition to superior electrical insulation, it also offers astounding chemical resistance to a variety of fuels, oils, acids, bases and water. Part A is clear in color and Part B is light straw in color. KB 1040 is widely used in optical, optoelectronic, fiber-optic, electronics, aerospace and related industries especially when optical clarity is desirable.
