Low Cure-Temperature Epoxy Preform

August 3, 2007 5:57 am | Product Releases | Comments

Uni-form epoxy preforms, manufactured by Multi-Seals, are available in a low cure-temperature epoxy called DC-202LT. DC-202LT will cure as fast as 5 minutes at 175°C (350°F) or at temperatures as low as 100°C (212°F) for 2 hours. This epoxy is suitable for sealing components that cannot withstand the cure temperatures of many heat-activated epoxies. The faster cure of the epoxy is also a benefit for large-scale sealing operations that require quicker cure schedules. Its preforms are one-part epoxy resins that are solid at room temperature. Close tolerances on preform configurations, consistent pre-mixed ratios of resin to catalyst
