Low-Shrinkage Clear EpoxyHACKENSACK, N.J., Nov. 3, 2009 – Master Bond Inc.’s newly developed EP30LV-1 is a low-viscosity, optically clear epoxy for general purpose bonding, coating, sealing and casting. Linear shrinkage after cure is a low 0.0003 in./in. Its dimensional stability and low shrinkage make it a good optical epoxy choice. It forms powerful bonds with both similar and dissimilar materials including metals, glass, ceramics, wood, vulcanized rubbers and many plastics.
These strong and rigid bonds are resistant to chemicals including oil, water and most organic solvents, as well as cold sterilants, ethylene oxide and gamma radiation. The two-part epoxy compound is formulated to cure at room temperatures.
The epoxy is easy to apply. The adhesive spreads readily, and only contact pressure is required for cure. The hardened adhesive is an electrical insulator. The polymer system is widely used in the optical, electronic, electrical, computer, metalworking, appliance, automotive and chemical industries. It is especially recommended when low viscosity is required for ease of application, and when bonded assemblies must exhibit superior dimensional stability.
