MATERIALS: Master Bond EP17HT-3 is a one part epoxy that sets up in 20 to 30 seconds and snap cures in only 2 to 3 minutes at 250F-300F. As a one part system, no mixing is required and the epoxy can be cured in sections up to ¼ inch thick. Moreover, its working life is indefinite as it will not gel until heated above 200F.
With a volume resistivity of greater than 1014 Ω-cm, EP17HT-3 has excellent 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.
Master Bond’s EP17HT-3 adhesive has superior temperature resistance with a service operating temperature range of -60 to 400F. It is 100 percent reactive and contains no solvents or diluents. It is also available in a paste version called EP17HT-3ND and a slightly toughened variant called Supreme 17HT-3 which is ideal for bonding dissimilar substrates and applications subject to thermal cycling. Each product comes in half pints, pints, quarts, gallons and 5 gallon container sizes.
Master Bond’s EP17HT-3 one part snap curing epoxy features high temperature resistance and has outstanding electrical properties and chemical resistance.
