The final component of the ForceLok Mechanical Pipe Joining System is the ForceLok Engineered Flexible Epoxy. The Epoxy is a medium viscosity epoxy for applying to line pipe as a barrier to corrosion in joints and to aid in sealing. It is a 1:1 meter-mix formulation for use with all durable materials where water, moisture, commercial chemicals such as acids or harsh cleaning materials are present and need to be protected against. The product exhibits minimal shrinkage and forms a tough, flexible bond, which distributes stress over the entire bonding line to prevent cracking or separation. The ForceLok Engineered Flexible Epoxy is made to provide a slower cure to allow flexibility to develop, and has a low odor when mixed out of the special dispensing nozzles. This product has a work life of 50-60 minutes in the mixer tube, is tack free to the touch in 180 minutes at 72F, and is fully cured in 24 hours. It has special adhesion agents for metal bonding especially damp or moist surfaces and will cure in temperatures down to 40F.
