Axiom Materials provides superior film adhesive solutions that deliver consistency every time, along with an endless array of customization options. Whether your project requires a simple epoxy film adhesive or a complex, customized, high-temperature material, Axiom is your trusted partner. You can choose from Axiom’s standard product offerings or customize a highly specific product to meet your project needs. Axiom provides end-to-end client support and we pride ourselves on the opportunity to serve our clients. Our Team is passionate about the industry and committed to providing best-in-class-support that begins with our initial consultation.

Adhesives for High Temperatures and Harsh Environments

Axiom’s permanent structural bonds can withstand temperatures from -67°F to 700°F. Our materials are designed to stand up to high temperatures and harsh chemical environments. Even our low-temperature materials hold up against some of the roughest wear and tear. Our higher-temperature materials are ready to withstand combustion engines, high speeds, hot-burning fuels, and more. Furthermore, our adhesives can withstand these elements even when they are maximized by hot, humid, and otherwise harsh weather conditions.

Variety of Adhesive Choices and Customization Options

Film adhesives are far from one-size-fits-all. You need precision materials, and Axiom can provide that precision with our wide variety of choices. From low temperatures to high temperatures, industrial to aerospace grades, these choices are here to fit every need. Of course, even with plenty of choices available, you may still need something more specific. That is why we offer customization options for highly specialized projects.

Epoxy Film Adhesives

Axiom’s epoxy film adhesives are some of our most widely used products. These high-performance adhesive solutions are designed for applications that require a lot of toughness. They come in a range of choices and product applications, so you can choose the level of toughness, heat resistance, and durability that you need. Epoxy film adhesives are generally supported, but most also come in unsupported variations for those who need them. These adhesives have excellent shear and superior peel properties. They can stand up to the harshest elements, and they are used in several types of bonding.

Film Adhesives Features

In addition to the features listed above, the following are a few things that our clients can expect from our materials:

– Multiple types of bonding: We briefly mentioned a few of your bonding choices above, but our bonding type options include metal to metal, composite to metal, wood to composite, honeycomb sandwich bonding, polymer foam panel core bonding, ceramic bonding, and tile bonding.
– Processing: Axiom provides variable temperature cure products from 160°F to 350°F.  Our adhesives can be used in press applications, autoclave processing, VBO OOA applications, and trapped molding applications.
– Cured bond lines: Our cured bond lines exhibit a combination of high strength and resistance to industrial fluids.

At Axiom Materials, we are committed to building adhesive solutions that are tough enough to stand up to harsh elements and high temperatures. Adhesive solutions are flexible enough to provide you with the exact option that you need. If you have any questions about our Film Adhesives product line – please let us know thru the contact form above. We are readily available to discuss your application, learn more about your needs, and address any questions.
