Cryogenic Adhesives – Cryogenic Bonding, Sealing, & Coating Compounds by Master Bond

Select Master Bond for all your cryogenic adhesive, sealant and coating applications. We offer a wide variety of one and two component epoxy systems and the technical expertise you need. Our products are noted for their durability and reliability. Master Bond provides personalized one to one support and our technical staff can recommend a compound tailor made for your needs.

Our epoxies require either ambient or elevated temperatures to cure. They vary in viscosity, cure speed, flexibility, chemical resistance, electrical properties, color, etc. They offer high physical strength and excellent adhesion to similar and dissimilar substrates. Special grades are electrically conductive, thermally conductive/electrically insulative, optically clear, NASA low outgassing approved and mechanical shock resistant. Additionally, a formulation is available called EP29LPSP which possesses the ability to withstand severe cryogenic shocks.
