Easy-to-use Epoxy for Customers
Eric Seibold, senior product and innovations manager at Permatex®, said, “Our epoxy formulations represent a focused approach to making our epoxies work better and ensuring they are easier to use. We conducted research with customers and recognized the need for new solutions to address common issues faced by users. For example, we added the blue dye indicator in our gel formulas to eliminate the guesswork in mixing, so the user would know exactly when the epoxy was ready to use.”
Permatex® 1 Minute and 5 Minute Gel Epoxy - Features a no drip gel formula for easy, mess-free application and a blue dye indicator that visibly indicates when the epoxy is properly mixed and ready for use. The epoxy is designed to work on a wide range of metal, hard plastics, ceramics, and rubber. The product requires no clamping and deliver a holding strength of 2500 PSI and 3400 PSI, respectively.
Permatex® 2 Ton Epoxy – The high strength epoxy that permanently bonds with ceramics, fiberglass, metal, and concrete to a tensile strength of up to 4000 PSI and is resistant to salt solution, unleaded gasoline, mineral spirts, oil, and antifreeze.
Permatex® Marine H2 Hold Epoxy – The epoxy sticks and cures under water and is well suited for fixing portable water tanks, fuel tanks, drains, boats, and other components exposed to water. It has an industrial strength of up to 4000 PSI and is effective in both salt and fresh water.
Permatex® 500° High Heat Epoxy – The epoxy withstands twice the temperature range of standard epoxies and is a high temperature liquid epoxy in a syringe. The product is effective for under-the-hood automotive applications and seals against common liquids, gasses, and automotive fluids. With a 2500 PSI strength, it can bond together a wide range of hard plastic, ceramics, glass rubber and more.
Permatex® Cellulose Wood Epoxy – It is a wood epoxy that incorporates cellulose to deliver the strength, color, and behavior of natural wood. Permatex® Wood Epoxy incorporates cellulose, the primary substance on the cell walls of green plants, to work like natural wood and outperform standard wood glues. It requires less clamping than standard wood epoxies and can be sanded, stained, or painted.
Permatex® Black Plastic Welder – The product works on hard and semi-flexible plastics, aluminum, fiberglass, and a variety of other surfaces. The weatherproof, UV-stable formulation and color makes it ideal for automotive trim and bumper applications. When cured, the product creates a 3500 PSI bond that can be drilled, threaded, machined, or painted.
Permatex® Steel Weld Epoxy – It is a multi-metal epoxy that eliminates the need for welding or brazing. The steel reinforced formula is excellent for bonding metal-to-metal surfaces. The product sets in five minutes, cures in 10 minutes to a sheer strength of up to 4500 PSI, and is resistant to water and solvents.
