High performance adhesives for heat exchangers
Permabond is a leading supplier of adhesive into the heat exchanger industry, supplying adhesives to bond and seal heat exchanger tubes to end plates. Adhesives can be used to form a 100% seal around tubes, providing an easier, more reliable solution to welding or brazing.
There are popular types of adhesive in this industry are:
Heat cure epoxy adhesives with a silvery appearance gives the impression of a solder weld or braze.
Dual cure anaerobic / UV sealants can also be used if a heat cure process isn’t possible.
Products are available in a range of viscosities to suit including wicking to flow into and
between pipe joints.
Using adhesive allows greater freedom in the use of materials – for example copper or aluminium tubes and endplates can be easily joined as can metal tubes into a Nylon, PBT or
other type of plastic end plate.
