Tensile testing is one of the simplest and most widely used mechanical tests that allows us to determine an epoxy's material properties and predict performance out in the field.
The bonding capabilities and performance characteristics of adhesives like epoxy are better understood by studying the fundamentals of fracture mechanics.
When the cold weather descends upon us, things start to move a little slower. This is true for epoxies, as well. In fact, most epoxies won't cure at temps below 50 degrees F. We have a few suggestions that might help prevent delays in your installation schedule.
