Rhino 102HT adhesive is formulated to improve the intimate bond between the epoxy adhesive and cured glass fiber laminate. This formulation technique results in increased physical properties due to better surface wetting and increased bond strength to E-glass fibers. Of equal, if not greater significance is the retention of physical properties after exposure to heat, cycle fatigue, water, expected adverse environmental reagents such as salt spray, acid rain, etc.
The formulation of Rhino 102HT adhesive results in minimal degradation of the cured adhesive’s physical properties as compared to epoxy systems not containing the proprietary formulation constituents of 102HT adhesive. This technology offers the fabricator not only a superior adhesive today, but more importantly, increased product life and long term durability.
