Foster® 82-77 Cryogenic Adhesive
FOSTER CRYOGENIC ADHESIVE
FOSTER CRYOGENIC ADHESIVE is a chemically-curing composition which develops high tensile strength and adhesion, at room temperature, to a variety of surfaces including metal, wood, and masonry. It is supplied at virtually 100% solids enabling immediate bonding between non-porous surfaces without solvent entrapment problems.
CRYOGENIC ADHESIVE also can be used as a fabricating adhesive. It often provides bonds stronger than the materials being joined. The cured film has excellent resistance to solvents, water, and many chemicals. The adhesive also performs well with various materials after thermal shock exposure at cryogenic temperatures. It is an ideal choice for bonding steel pipe shoes or saddles to pipe insulation assemblies.
CRYOGENIC ADHESIVE meets requirements for LEED IEQ 4.1 Low-Emitting Materials, Adhesives and Sealants. VOC 82-77 Part A: 0 g/l, less water and exempt solvents. VOC 82-77 Part B: 0 g/l, less water and exempt solvents.
CRYOGENIC ADHESIVE contains no asbestos, lead, mercury, or mercury compounds.
Store between 40ºF (4ºC) and 100ºF (38ºC). Apply between 60ºF (16ºC) and 100ºF (38ºC). Pot life is longer at lower temperatures, shorter at higher temperatures. Mixing large quantities also shortens pot life, thus mixing more than one kit at a time is not recommended. 0413
