ABOUT US

Adhesives offered by Couch Sales, LLC are primarily used for testing the strength of metallic and ceramic coatings used in the aerospace, medical implant, and other industries where the bond strength of the coatings is crucial. The following adhesives are available from Couch Sales, LLC:

FM-1000 Elastomeric adhesive, manufactured by Cytec Engineered Materials, is a film adhesive required by many companies for testing metallic and ceramic coatings throughout industry. The material supplied by Couch Sales, LLC is 0.06 pound per square foot and is approximately 0.010 inches thick. All FM-1000 Adhesive is certified by the manufacturer to conform to Federal Specification MMM-A-132 Revision B, Type 1, Class 1, Form F, Group 4. Additionally, it is also certified to conform to Specification A50TF175 Revision S2, Class A. FM-1000 is available in two forms, either in sheet form as provided by the manufacturer or in pre-cut one-inch diameter wafer form. FM-1000 is sold in a minimum order of five square feet. One five square foot sheet is 20 inches by 36 inches. In the pre-cut wafer form, five square feet will yield approximately 575 – 580 wafers. For large orders, quantity discounts are available.

3M Company manufactures EC-2086 Structural Adhesive. The material is a one-part paste adhesive. EC-2086 is primarily used to test the strength of high-density coatings, such as metallic coatings applied by the HVOF (High Velocity Oxy Fuel) process. It can also be used for testing coatings applied by other processes, such as plasma spray coatings, provided that the coating is not intended to contain high porosity levels. EC-2086 structural adhesive will generally test approximately 1000 to 2000 pounds per square inch higher than the FM-1000 adhesive. All EC-2086 is certified by the Manufactured to conform to Specification A15B112A1. One copy of the Manufacturer Certification and Material Safety Data Sheet accompanies each shipped order.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

THE COUCH DIFFERENCE

All FM1000 Adhesive shipped from Couch Sales, LLC comes from the most recent batch produced from the Manufacturer. Cytec Engineered Materials provides a material certification that conforms to Federal Specification MMM-A-132B and GE Material Specification A50TF175. No adhesive leaves our facility until conformance to the above material specifications has been verified.

As a courtesy to our customers, we test from every lot of incoming adhesive to ASTM C633-01 (2008) and ASTM F1147 prior to shipment. However, these are the procedural tests for bond strength of coatings and not part of the material specifications. Samples tested from all lots exceed 10,000-psi bond strength prior to shipment using our standard test conditions and equipment. Again, these are procedural tests and results can vary depending on the conditions at each facility. NO ADHESIVE RETURNS ARE ACCEPTED UNLESS DEFECTIVE.
