One part epoxy shows chemical resistance

EP17HT-3 from Master Bond is a one part epoxy that sets up in 20 to 30 seconds and snap cures in only 2 to 3 minutes at 120°C-150ºC.

As a one part system, no mixing is required and the epoxy can be cured in sections up to 6mm thick. Moreover, its working life is indefinite as it will not gel until heated above 95ºC.

With a volume resistivity of greater than 1014 ohm-cm, the product has good electrical insulation and chemical resistance characteristics and is resistant to 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.

EP17HT-3 adhesive is 100% reactive and contains no solvents or diluents. It is also available in a paste version and a slightly toughened variant, 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 containers.
