Epoxy adhesives FDA approved 04 April 2013

Permabond has expanded its epoxy adhesive line with a new range of two component epoxies formulated with FDA approved ingredients.

These toughened epoxies are manufactured in compliance with the FDA CFR 175.105 and 175.300. Permabond says the excellent shock and impact resistance coupled with environmental and temperature resistance makes these epoxies ideal for food processing and food packaging equipment.

Typical food contact applications include bonding filter components, bonding and sealing appliances and food handling equipment. They cure at room temperature or can be heated for a faster cure. The range includes various viscosities, gap filling capabilities and working times to suit most applications, and Permabond custom formulates to suit individual manufacturing needs.
