The EP17HT-3 one-part epoxy sets up in 20 to 30 seconds and snap-cures in two to three minutes at 250° to 300ºF in sections up to ¼ in. thick. Features include volume resistivity >1014 Ω-cm, Shore D hardness that exceeds 85, and a tensile lap shear of 2100 psi. Operating temperatures range from -60º to 400ºF.
Single Component Snap Cure Epoxy Has Outstanding Electrical Properties and Chemical Resistance
HACKENSACK, NJ - May 6, 2010 - Master Bond EP17HT-3 is a one part epoxy that sets up in 20 to 30 seconds and snap cures in only 2 to 3 minutes at 250°F-300ºF. As a one part system, no mixing is required and the epoxy can be cured in sections up to 1/4" thick. Moreover, its working life is indefinite as it will not gel until heated above 200ºF.
With a volume resistivity of greater than 1014 ohm-cm, EP17HT-3 has excellent electrical insulation and chemical resistance characteristics. It is resistant to a wide range of chemicals including water, oil and most organic solvents. Other typical features include a Shore D hardness that exceeds 85 and a tensile lap shear of 2100 psi.
Master Bond's EP17HT-3 adhesive has superior temperature resistance with a service operating temperature range of -60ºF to +400ºF. It is 100% reactive and contains no solvents or diluents. It is also available in a paste version called EP17HT-3ND and a slightly toughened variant called Supreme 17HT-3 which is ideal for bonding dissimilar substrates and applications subject to thermal cycling. Each product comes in half pints, pints, quarts, gallons and 5 gallon container sizes.
Master Bond’s EP17HT-3 one part snap curing epoxy features high temperature resistance and has outstanding electrical properties and chemical resistance.
