Electrically insulating epoxy adhesive that resists water and oils introduced by Master Bond
HACKENSACK, N.J., 9 March 2014. Master Bond Inc. in Hackensack, N.J., is introducing the EP21SC-1 epoxy adhesive engineered with a silicon carbide filler material that delivers abrasion resistance in chemical and mechanical processing applications.
This electrically insulating epoxy has a smooth paste consistency and a non-critical one-to-one mix ratio by weight or volume. As a two part system, it cures at room temperature or more quickly at elevated temperatures.
With a Shore D hardness exceeding 95, EP21SC-1 is a rigid compound that adheres well to treated metals, ceramics, and many plastics. Its physical strength profile includes a tensile strength greater than 6,000 psi and a compressive strength of over 15,000 psi at room temperature.
Since the system is 100 percent reactive and does not contain any solvents or diluents, it has minimal shrinkage upon cure. Additionally, EP21SC-1 is capable of withstanding water, oils, hydraulic fluids, acids, and bases.
The combination of the aforementioned properties enables this system to be widely employed for maintenance and repair of pumps, chutes, centrifuges, impellers and tanks.
EP21SC-1 is serviceable from -60 degrees Fahrenheit to 250 F. It is an electrical insulator and it has a low thermal expansion coefficient. Both Parts A and B are dark gray in color and are available in standard packaging ranging from pint to 5 gallon container kits.
