Epoxy Resin Filter Adhesives

Chemically Resistant Polyurethane Compounds and Epoxy Resins for the Filtration Industry

Filters bonded with chemically resistant epoxy resin adhesives

Epoxy resin and polyurethane adhesives used in filters that are required to separate contaminates from various grades of oil and gasoline, greases, and coolants, must be extremely chemically resistant and maintain good adhesive qualities in the harsh environments they are exposed to. Epic Resins has developed many epoxy resin and polyurethane filter adhesives to fit customers exacting specifications for the processing of chemically resistant filters. Our epoxy and urethane filter adhesives will bond tightly to your endcap, ensuring no fluid bypass. Our products range from low viscosity polyurethanes designed for optimal wicking to epoxy resins that have virtually no wicking. Epic Resins also offers an extensive line of seam sealing epoxy resin and polyurethane filter adhesives. Below are just a few of the products Epic Resins produces that are used in separation filtration.

Epic S7381 is designed as a high hardness polyurethane casting material for use in filter end cap applications.  The S7381 urethane's high hardness and rapid cure allow for the fast processing of chemically resistant end caps. Epic S7381 gel time can be adjusted to suit your production requirements. Epic S7381 filter adhesive is also available in a variety of colors.

Epic 0161 - 1 Component Epoxy Resin Filter Adhesive

Epic 0161 is a filled, medium viscosity one component epoxy resin filter adhesive ideally suited for harsh filtration environments that require exposure to such items as aviation fuels, Skydrol(R), gasoline and other hydraulic fluids. Epic 0161 processes in less that 30 minutes at 175C and possesses great shelf stability in a one component epoxy adhesive/potting compound.

Epic S7189-01 - 2 Component Epoxy Filter Adhesive

Epic S7189-01 is a two component epoxy adhesive designed specifically for filter end caps.  This system features controlled wicking, excellent chemical resistance and fast cure rates. The 3:1 mix ratio by volume and non-abrasive filler of this filter adhesive make it well suited for meter-mix dispense applications.

Epic S7292 - 2 Component Epoxy Filter Adhesive

Epic S7292 is a bright white two component epoxy filter adhesive that will maintain its hardness at 200F. Epic S7292 offers good chemical resistance and bonds well to most end cap materials. This material is being used in applications to filter aviation fuels and to filter various petroleum based oils and lubricants.

Epic S7136 - 2 Component Epoxy Potting/Casting Compound

Epic S7136 is a two component epoxy potting/casting compound. Epic S7136 has been designed for applications that require low water absorption and good chemical resistance in conjunction with good thermal conductivity. When cured for 1 hour @100C, Epic S7136 has outstanding chemical resistance and has shown no physical breakdowns after a 1 year soak in methylene chloride.  Epic S7136 can be processed in as little as 5 minutes when cured at elevated temperatures.  Epic S7136 is well suited for applications to filter gasoline, hydraulic fluids, and oils at elevated temperatures.

Epic 0172 -1 Component Epoxy Casting Material

Epic 0172 is a one component epoxy casting material. Epic 0172 has excellent resistance to thermal shock. Epic 0172 performs in filtration applications seeing temperatures from -40C to 400F, with good adhesion to most endcaps.  With good chemical resistance, Epic 0172 is a great choice when you have a demanding application over a wide temperature range.

Epic S7452 - 2 Component Urethane Filter Adhesive/Sealant

Epic S7452 is a two component urethane filter adhesive/sealant designed to have a convenient 4:1 volumetric mix ratio and be self-leveling when mixed. Epic S7452 features good adhesion to a variety of substrates along with a short gel-time for fast turnover of parts.  Epic Resins S7452 performs well when exposed to harsh bio-diesel fuel.


Mechanical Properties of Chemically Resistant Epoxy and Polyurethane Filtration Adhesives

Epic Resins can adapt any epoxy or polyurethane adhesive to meet the specifications of your filtration needs. Our products feature many mechanical properties with the ability to be modified for addressing changing situations. Many aspects are malleable, including capacity to insulate electricity, resistance to chemicals and heat, and adhesion rates. Thermosetting polymers are added to our filtration adhesives to ensure our epoxy and polyurethanes adhesives are the best chemically resistant resin combinations available. Thermosetting polymers allow our products to maintain adhesive and bonding functionality while exposed to chemicals in a high temperature setting. Thermoset is set once it has cured, meaning the chemical reaction has occurred and cannot be altered by outside forces. Our epoxy and polyurethane filtration adhesives remain dependably secure, whatever the circumstances. 

Benefits and Uses of Chemically Resistant Resin

  • Helps prevent corrosion of pipes and fittings  
  • Helps concrete reinforcing rebar
  • Reduces exposure and flammability, as compared to powder coatings 
  • Fast curing time: bonds in as little as 5 minutes, depending on the temperature it’s cured at
  • Resistant to thermal shock: -40°F to 400°F (-40°C to 204°C)Low water absorption with favorable thermal conductivity
  • Can adhere to metals, glass, wood, stone, and some plastics
  • Works in elevated temperatures
  • Works effectively with coolants, gas, lubricants and oils
