Hackensack, N.J.—Formulated for electrical potting and encapsulation applications, Master Bond EP36AO epoxy combines high thermal conductivity with thermal stability. This flexible, heat resistant epoxy has superior mechanical properties.

Serviceable over the wide temperature range of -80F to +500F, EP36AO provides high performance in harsh conditions. Once cured, it features solid electrical characteristics. This system has a coefficient of thermal expansion exceeding 75 in/in x 10-6/C at 60C and a tensile strength of over 2,000 psi. EP36AO is a capable adhesive and coating that adheres well to both metallic and non-metallic substrates and it features long-term chemical resistance to an array of organic and inorganic chemicals.

As a one-component system, EP36AO doesn't require any mixing and offers the convenience of flexible cure schedules. A typical gel time is 30 minutes at 180F, with full cures attained in 2-2 1/2 hours at 300F. This can be shortened further at higher temperatures. EP36AO will retain its liquidity as long as the temperature does not exceeed 180F. It is supplied as a solid and has a minimum shelf life of three months but can last as long as six months in its original unopened container. EP36AO is available in pints, quarts, gallons and five-gallon containers. It is now also available in conveniently prepared 30-gram cookies.
