EP38CL cures at room temperature or more quickly at elevated temperatures and has low shrinkage upon curing. This low viscosity, two part epoxy has a 100:60 mix ratio by weight and a working life of 40-50 minutes. It bonds well to a variety of substrates including metals, ceramics, glass, composites, many rubbers and plastics. EP38CL features a tensile lap shear strength of 2,500 psi, a compressive strength of 8,000 psi and a tensile strength of 7,500 psi at room temperature.
Additionally, EP38CL is optically clear with a glossy appearance. It is serviceable from -60°F to +250°F. This electrically insulative compound is used in optical, aerospace, opto-electronic and specialty OEM applications. It is available for use in standard packaging options ranging from 1/2 pint to 5 gallon kits as well as premixed and frozen syringes.
