Compounds used in filters required to separate contaminants from various grades of oil and gasoline, greases, and coolants must be chemically resistant and maintain adhesive qualities in harsh environments. Choose from hundreds of epoxy resin and polyurethane adhesive, potting and casting compounds to meet exact specifications for the processing of chemically resistant filters. Our epoxy and polyurethane filter adhesives bond tightly to your end cap, ensuring no fluid bypass. Products ranging from low viscosity, optimal wicking polyurethanes to epoxy resins with virtually no wicking allow you to choose a material for your needs. We also offer a line of seam sealing epoxy resin and polyurethane filter adhesives.
While we have standard products for the filtration industry, we are constantly formulating new products. We specialize in tailored epoxy resins and polyurethanes for diverse markets and partner with you to design cost-effective solutions.
