Zyvex Performance Materials (ZPM, Columbus, Ohio) has launched a new line of carbon nanotube-enhanced two-part epoxy adhesives under the brand name Epovex Adhesive. The product is designed as a replacement for existing aerospace-grade adhesives. Laboratory tests have shown that the Epovex adhesives have good T-Peel and shear strength in composite-to-composite, composite-to-metal, and composite-to-wood bonds. The company reports that independent testing against competitive products shows that its new adhesive products demonstrate 50 percent greater performance in T-Peel strength (ASTM D1876) and a 15 percent improvement in shear strength (ASTM D1002). These adhesives are available in quart (3.5 lb/1.6 kg) and gallon (14 lb/6.4 kg) kits. Larger quantities are available for higher volume application by industrial customers.
