Advantages of Using Master Bond Adhesives for Renewable Energy Applications

Master Bond adhesives offer excellent adhesion to glass, metals, ceramics and most plastics. Using these compounds instead of mechanical fasteners can:

  • Cut installation expenses
  • Reduce maintenance spending
  • Improve power generation efficiency
  • Lengthen equipment longevity
  • Reduce stress points
  • Streamline labor processes
  • Save floor space

Types of Adhesive Systems Available for Alternative Energy Applications

Epoxy, silicone, and hybrid composition have played a key role in bonding, potting essential components/parts and providing design engineers versatile solutions for challenging application requirements. Some of these systems are noted for their high mechanical strength characteristics, minimal shrinkage upon cure, ability to withstand mechanical stresses and protection they offer to sensitive electronics. Products have been compounded to successfully withstand hot/cold climates, thermal cycling, sunlight, moisture exposure, different expansion and contraction coefficients.
