Master Bond (Hackensack, NJ) has developed the EP21ARHT two-component epoxy for coating and lining storage tanks, piping, scrubbers, and processing equipment. Its chemical, fuel, and acid resistance allows it to withstand immersion in 20 percent hydrochloric acid for more than a year. The epoxy cures at room temperature with minimal shrinkage, or more rapidly at elevated temperatures, and once cured, it produces a bond strength greater than 2,200 psi. It can also be thermally cycled over the range of -60° to 400°F. EP21ARHT bonds well to metals, ceramics, glass, and many plastics, according to the company.
