Masterbond, global technical adhesive system specialist since 1976, has launched a non-halogenated flame retardant two component epoxy meeting Airbus’ demanding standards for fire performance, smoke emission and toxic gas emission in case of fire. These are respectively sections 7.1.2 (12 seconds vertical burning test), 7.3.2 and 7.4 of ABD0031, Issue F, and AITM 30005 Issue 2. The epoxy can be used as an adhesive, sealant and for encapsulation, including in aircraft interiors, floor and door assemblies, frame linings and electronics. It offers convenient processing, high adhesion to a wide range of substrates, low shrinkage on curing and good electrical insulation at service temperatures -60°C to 200°C.
