Epoxy Adhesives & Putties

Hylomar Tilebond

Flexible impact resistant epoxy adhesive

Tilebond is a flexible, heat resistant epoxy adhesive for permanently bonding surfaces subject to impact, vibration and deflection.

High Degree of Flexibility: - Impacts and vibration are absorbed and dissipated along the bond line. This means the adhesive and tiles won't crack or be dislodged.

Toughness & Resilience: - The adhesive will recover to its normal state after shock loading and forced deformation.

High Temperature Exposure: - Exposure to temperatures up to 1500C (3020F) increases the adhesives flexibility unlike conventional epoxy adhesives which become more rigid.

Adhesion: - An adhesion promoter increases the bond strength to a variety of substrates.

Tilebond has proven to be highly successful in bonding fusion cast high alumina ceramic tiles for protection against the abrasive effects of transporting fuel, coal and shale. It has proven track record in both coal preparation plants and coal fired power stations.

Steel or concrete surfaces may need to be mechanically abraded and/or degreased to achieve a clean sound substrate, free from loose rust, laitance, dust etc. Sandblasting, grinding and wire brushing are acceptable methods of abrasive cleaning. New concrete surfaces should be first allowed to cure for up to 14-28 days depending on ambient conditions. Tilebond may be applied to steel or concrete which has a sound protective coating. A light grit-blast or emery paper treatment should then provide an adequate mechanical key, but an adhesion test is always recommended.
