Detailed Product Description:
Loctite Hysol 9430 is a two-part modified epoxy structural adhesive that attains structural
properties after a room temperature cure. It is formulated to give a combination of very
high peel strength along with excellent shear strength. The tough, flexible nature of this
adhesive makes it a perfect choice for bonding dissimilar materials including aluminum,
carbon fiber, fiberglass, steel, stainless, etc. and for assemblies with clearances (bond line
thicknesses) of up to 0.100”.
Often used by custom builders for assembly of carbon fiber bicycle frames, (Trek, for example)
Hysol 9430 is convenient to use and easy to cure while developing tensile strengths up to
5,300 psi, shear strength of 4,700 psi and a modulus of elasticity of 380,000 psi.
Mix ratio by weight: 100 parts “A” to 23 parts “B”
Mix ratio by volume: 4 parts “A” base to 1 part “B”
Working life (pot life): 50 minutes.
Fixturing time: 6-8 hours
Cure time (full strength): 5 days (at 77ºF)
1 hour (at 180ºF)
