Epoxy 1-component adhesives are heat curing and primarily used when high shear strength or high crash-resistance is required, as well as ease of working. In 1-component systems the resin and hardener lie side by side in the mixture. The hardener is non-soluble at room temperature and dissolves only when heat is applied, this will initiating the curing process. The clear advantage of those systems are simple application and good handling properties, as well as the fact that the operator does not have to perform the mixing and dose measurement.
Our 1-K epoxy resins possess excellent long term durability coupled with very high resistance to temperature change.
