Master Bond EP17HT-3 one part epoxy sets up in 20 to 30 seconds and snap cures in two to three minutes at 250°F-300ºF. As a one part system, no mixing is required and the epoxy can be cured in sections up to 1/4" thick. Its working life is indefinite because it will not gel until heated above 200ºF. With a volume resistivity of greater than 1014 ohm-cm, EP17HT-3 has desirable electrical insulation and chemical resistance characteristics. It is resistant to a wide range of chemicals including 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. The adhesive has exceptional temperature resistance with a service operating temperature range of -60ºF to +400ºF. It is 100 percent reactive and contains no solvents or diluents.
