Aremco's newest epoxy, made for bonding applications to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 degrees Celsius), is a two-part, aluminum-nitride-filled epoxy that bonds well to high-temperature plastics such as polyimides and composites, and glass, ceramic, and high-expansion metals. It cures in 2 hours at 200F, or in 24 hours at room temperature. The cured material has a tensile shear strength of 1,375 psi, a thermal conductivity of 8.5 BTU-in/hr-ft2 - Fahrenheit, dielectric strength of 240 V/mil, and good corrosion protection. It comes in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon containers. It is geared toward bonding heat sinks and fins in heat exchangers and electrical/electronic assemblies.
