Cutting tool materials based on aluminum oxide and silicon nitride. Ceramic tools can withstand higher cutting speeds than cemented carbide tools when machining hardened steels, cast irons and high-temperature alloys.
Materials composed of different elements, with one element normally embedded in another, held together by a compatible binder.
- shear strength
Stress required to produce fracture in the plane of cross section, the conditions of loading being such that the directions of force and of resistance are parallel and opposite although their paths are offset a specified minimum amount. The maximum load divided by the original cross-sectional area of a section separated by shear.
Formulated primarily for high-performance structural bonding applications, Master Bond EP13SPND-2 is a one-part, high temperature-resistant epoxy for the aerospace and specialty OEM industries. As a single component system, this product is easy to handle and does not require mixing prior to use. It also has an unlimited working life at room temperature. EP13SPND-2 has a paste consistency for non-drip application and it will not flow when curing.
Featuring an impressive strength profile, EP13SPND-2 offers a tensile lap shear strength, compressive strength and tensile modulus of over 3,000 psi, 18,000 psi and 500,000-550,000 psi, respectively. This dimensionally stable epoxy bonds well to many substrates including metals, glass, ceramics, composites, rubbers and most plastics. Typical cured bond line thickness is 0.002-0.008 inches.
EP13SPND-2 is a competent electrical insulator and features a volume resistivity exceeding 1014 ohm-cm. It resists a variety of chemicals such as fuels, oils, acids, bases and many solvents. This system is serviceable over the wide temperature range of -60°F to +500°F and is available for use in pints, quarts, gallons and 5-gallon containers.
