Loctite manufactures some of the most advanced epoxy film adhesives that have the technology to excel in metal to metal and honeycomb bonding. Loctite 9696 is a modified epoxy adhesive formulated for a variety of applications requiring a service temperature up to 121 degrees Celsius and high toughness. The service temperature is defined as the temperature the material will still retain 1000 psi/6.9 MPa. It also has excellent environmental resistance and greater durability over the life of the production article.
Loctite EA 9696 has the ability to cure at low temperatures and provides a long shop time making the material suitable for a variety of bonding applications. The epoxy can also be heat cured at a temperature of 107 to 129 degrees Celsius for 60 to 90 minutes without altering the materials properties. Loctite EA 969 Aero exceeds fatigue and creep requirements and offers a greater durability over the life of the production article which lowers the repair costs. This high quality material has a balanced flow and is very capable to be used on sound suppression assemblies.
It is important to understand the proper storage and handling precautions when using Loctite 9696. This is an epoxy based system, so it is recommended that it be applied in a well-ventilated area. Avoid breathing in the toxic vapors and try not to allow it to come in contact with the skin. Loctite EA 9696 requires to be refrigerated stored at a temperature of 18 degrees Celsius or lower. Stored in its original container with the correct temperature this material will have a shelf life of 12 months from the date of shipment. Loctite EA 9696 should be stored in a container that is sealed reducing the risk of moisture contamination. Once the adhesive is removed from cold storage it needs to sit at least for 60 days at a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. 30 days at a temperature of 32 degrees Celsius. Once the adhesive is applied it is extremely important to remove the excessive adhesive from the tools and substrates. When it is dried, the epoxy will be difficult to remove except by mechanical abrasion. For more information about the safe handling and proper application methods of this advanced material, please refer to the Loctite EA 9696 MSDS.
