Solvay FM® 355 Epoxy Film Adhesive
Categories: Polymer; Adhesive; Thermoset; Epoxy; Epoxy Adhesive

Material Notes: FM 355 is a modified epoxy adhesive formulated to maximize toughness in applications requiring hot/wet performance to 350°F (177°C) cure. It contains no asbestos or aluminum fillers which is desirable for radar transparent applications. FM 355 adhesive film is supported with a lightweight nylon carrier and will cure at 350°F (177°C) in one hour. For composite bonding applications, FM 355 adhesive provides excellent toughness and shear strength properties. It was developed for co-cure as well as secondary bonding applications. In addition, FM 355 adhesive can be co-cured with epoxy or bismaleimide (BMI) composite systems requiring post-cures of up to 475°F (246°C).

Features & Benefits:

  • Excellent strength in both metallic and composite structures
  • 350°F (177°C) service temperature with good strength retention up to 420°F (216°C)
  • Controlled flow
  • Does not contain asbestos or aluminum fillers
  • Radar transparent
