Rhino™ 102 is a high strength, toughened, structural epoxy adhesive for the bonding of fiberglass to itself and many dissimilar materials. It is a two phase (toughened) epoxy resin produced using a CTBN elastomer with a flexible epoxy resin backbone for maximum stress and fatigue resistance. 102 bonds with an immediate high tack consistency, a long working life and a quick cure time. Rhino 102 may be used at ambient temperature(s) ranging from 55°F (13°C) to 100°F (38°C). The working life at 100°F (38°C) is > 2 hours (working time increases with lower ambient temperatures), with full cures occurring between 6 – 12 hours depending on cure temperature.
Unlike most epoxy adhesives, Rhino 102 adhesive cured at ambient temperatures provides heat resistance well in excess of most engineering limits with an HDT of 85º C (185°F ). The material mixes at 2:1 by volume, or 100:44 by weight (resin to hardener). The convenient color-coded components form a uniform color when properly mixed.102 adhesive is designed for high production meter/mix ram dispensing and although highly thixotropic, have very fast application rates. With low odor and toxicity, Rhino 102 adhesive is solvent free, and 100% solids.
