Epoxy Preform Cures as Fast as Five Minutes at 175°C
Uni-form epoxy preforms, manufactured by Multi-Seals, are now available in a low cure-temperature epoxy called DC-202LT. It will cure as fast as five minutes at 175°C (350°F) or at temperatures as low as 100°C (212°F) for two hours. This makes it appropriate for sealing components that cannot withstand the cure temperatures of many heat-activated epoxies. The faster cure of DC-202LT also suits large-scale sealing operations that require quicker cure schedules. DC-202LT maintains a low flow during cure to provide a greater control of epoxy movement, which prevents the sealant from covering unwanted areas of a component.
