We are so impressed with the Hernon Manufacturing sealing equipment and the sealants that we have decided to include the sealing process on our website. You may view the process at www.polyfrang.com. I strongly recommend the installation of the Hernon Manufacturing, Inc. automated sealing equipment and the use of the Hernon sealants.

Tuffbond® 302, a modified epoxy with very good moisture, chemical, and heat resistance that features a very fast room temperature cure, is manually applied to exterior trim via a two-part syringe and a static mixing wand.
Epoxies with Customized Formulas and Dispensing Equipment to Match your Exact Needs
Epoxies by Hernon Manufacturing high-performance epoxy are adhesives that come in single or two-component (2K) formulations. Two-component epoxies are chemical cure materials which is why the two parts are kept separate until application. One of the materials is a chemical initiator while the other is an adhesive. 2K epoxies rarely need batch mixing and are typically dispensed with static mixing wands from preformed duo-part packages. The packaging and mixing wands ensure a perfect dispensing ratio of each component every time. Single component epoxies, however, are typically heat-cure adhesives and must be warmed to a certain temperature to start the crosslinking (curing) reaction.
Epoxies can offer many features such as fast room temperature cure or low chlorine formulations. Hernon Manufacturing maintains these special formulas as part of a library of over 5,000 unique adhesives and sealants in addition to offering custom made adhesives as necessary. This full-service approach ensures that Hernon Manufacturing experts can assist in bonding even the rarest combinations of substrates in any environment.
Significant Features and Key Advantages of Hernon Manufacturing Epoxy Adhesives:
Reduced cost per application over alternative fastening methods
Diffuses stress across the entire bonded surface
Bonds using lightweight polymers
100% Active – No Solvents
Seals and fills gaps at the same time as bonding
Water and chemical resistance
Prevents corrosion of bonded assembly
Apply across the entire bonding surface in one step
Custom formulas available such as UV curing epoxies
Typical Applications for Epoxies
While most people associate epoxies only with bonding substrates, high-performance epoxies have many additional uses as well. In the fiber optic industry, Tuffbond® 302 is used to pot cables protecting them from moisture and physical damage. Additional applications include:
Flexible epoxies available for potting electronics
Bonding manufacturing components such as voice coils in speakers
Rapid cure laminates and gel coats such as chemical resistant flooring
POPULAR EPOXY ADHESIVES
