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.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
