Default Hysol Aeropoxy interchangeable accessories

Hi there,

Can anyone advise if plungers and mixing nozzles can be interchanged with Hysol and BVM guns or each brand should use its own gun?
Thanks. Dany

as far as I know bvm Aero-poxy and hysol are one in the same. I have been using the hysol from mcmaster carr and BVM short mixing nozzles for abouta year now and they work great. One thing with the shorter nozzles is I find you get a better mix the slowwer you apply the epoxy.

Hope that helps.

Just a question:

BVM Aeropoxy is a 1:1 ratio glue while Hysol is a 2:1 one.....are they really the same?. Curiously the same apply to DEVCON HP 250 that should be the equivalent to Loctite Hysol.

Please, confirm from your experience.

Best Regards,

Jesus,

BVM has the Aeropoxy with 1:1 mixing ratioand the Vpoxy with a 2:1 mixing ratio same as Hisol. have no experience with the DEVCON HP 250, but i guess these are basically the same products (formulas) with different brand names.

Hysol 9462 is a 1:1 glue. Do NOT mix 2:1 it will either become brittle or it will never completely set up. Check http://www.gluguru.com/Hysol%20Data%20Sheets/9462.htm for more information.

Thanks friends. I simply didn´t know about Vpoxy and after checking with Hysol 9462, Hysol 9466 and Devcon HP 250 technical sheets it is more clear to me and fully coincide with the explanations from Dany and Jimmy.

Best Regards,

Default RE: Hysol Aeropoxy interchangeable accessories

I have been using Aeropoxy for a few years with excellent results. recently i had what i think is a bad tube. i am going to Vpoxy now but in the mean time i have some fittings that have about 1/2 cured aeropoxy and 1/2 partially cured. its brass fittings into a kevlar tank.

any recommendations on how to remove the semi tacky/not cured stuff??


thanks
