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.

Axiom Materials, one of Kordsa’s US-based subsidiaries, has announced the launch of its latest novel product line of Oxide-Oxide CMC surfacing films under the trade name of CerFace. The first product of the line is CerFace™ AX-8810, a surfacing film designed to improve the outer finish of ultra-high temperature CMC components to reduce manufacturing costs and improve part lifecycle.Axiom Materials Inc., one of Kordsa’s, a global player in the tire, construction reinforcement, and composites technologies market, US-based subsidiaries, announced the launch of its latest Oxide-Oxide Ceramic Matrix Composite product line: CerFace™ surfacing films. Axiom, the only worldwide qualified manufacturer of Oxide-Oxide ceramic matrix prepregs on an industrial scale, has also introduced its first CerFace™ product, AX-8810, which is uniquely engineered to co-cure with Axiom’s Ox-Ox prepregs to reduce surface porosity and to improve surface finish. The product protects exposed fibers and minimizes surface roughness of CMC components for operating temperatures of up to 1093⁰C. Application of the film in a single-step process eliminates the need for traditional coatings and secondary processes for significant cost reduction. Axiom Materials had filed for an international patent for the CerFace™ surfacing films in 2019. The CerFace™ AX-8810 film is non-toxic and environmentally benign. The Oxide matrix is applied to an Oxide carrier using advanced solution coating techniques to maximize product performance. CerFace™ AX- 8810 is currently being offered in rolls of 61 cm width, and 23 m length. Wider widths will be available in the future. Raj Dhawan, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Axiom, is the inventor and patent holder of the product. Regarding the product, Mr. Dhawan commented, “CerFace™ AX8810 is a flagship product for Axiom’s CMC product line and its new High-Temperature Composite Center in Santa Ana, California. High surface porosity and roughness of Ox-Ox CMC, that is typical of Ox-Ox components, can be detrimental in applications where airflow, drag, and friction are a factor in overall efficiency of the component. Our CerFace™ AX-8810 can be co-cured and sintered with the Ox-Ox prepregs to produce CMC components of superior surface quality without the costly steps of secondary coatings and processing. CMC components with the surfacing film result in superior performance and life cycle. I’m proud to say that the product has received wide and enthusiastic acceptance by our aerospace and industrial customers based on their evaluation and manufacturing trials.” CerFace™ is used in high-temperature components for industrial and aerospace markets. Typical industrial applications may include combustors, shrouds, gas filters for power generation and furnace hardware, and typical aerospace applications may include lightweight aero-engine components such as the mixer, center body and cone sections; hot sections of the aircraft structures near the engine, and radomes. Application of CerFace™ also enhances the precision of machining and drilling of the CMC component. The Company plans to introduce additional CerFace™ films for modifying the surface properties of Ox-Ox CMC components in the future.
