Bonding steel to steel

Bonding steel to steel

Bonding steel to steel

We're looking for a means of bonding carbon steel surfaces together with great strength.  The bond also needs to be heat and impact tolerant.  We'd be grateful if anyone has any suggestions of a suitable bond or adhesive to do this.



RE: Bonding steel to steel

I hate to be a master of the obvious, but what could be better for bonding steel to steel than steel - is welding possible?

If not, many epoxy products are available that may meet your requirements.  You will have to contact the manufacturers to determine which product is right for you.

Just a few you might try:



RE: Bonding steel to steel

Thanks for the suggestions, but we'd rather not weld!  We're looking to secure a joint consisting of a medium-radius (50-60+mm) screw thread with mating faces.  Ideally, we'd like to just coat one part and screw them together - maybe this is over-optimistic?  


RE: Bonding steel to steel

What you would like to do doesn't sound overly optimistic.  In fact if it's on the small scale that I imagine from your second post, it may not even be all that expensive.

There are epoxy adhesives that are specially formulated for bonding steel surfaces and are heat and impact resistant.

If you contact one of the manufacturers in my first post or simply search for epoxy manufacturers on the internet, you will get some good information on what's available for you to use.
