New NASA Outgassing Epoxy Potting System

Epoxyset is pleased to announce that its EPOXICAST EC-1850FT with EH-9 curing agent has recently passed NASA Outgassing tests. Outgassing is the measure of the level of residual low molecular weight species (including water if the material is not conditioned in a low moisture environment prior to testing) that can be evolved at high temperatures. NASA outgassing has a specific set of standards to meet demanding applications. Many unique applications usually…

What you need to know before selecting an adhesive

Many factors go into the proper selection of adhesives for simple and demanding applications. Many important parameters (such as bonding surfaces, handling properties, cure conditions, environmental and physical stresses during use, etc.) are not considered. It is essential to understand all aspects before choosing appropriate adhesives to evaluate otherwise products may not offer the performance or longevity required.

Solder Replacement Epoxy

Silver-filled epoxy adhesives are being used increasingly as solder replacements in many applications. While solder is cheap, it has several limitations including the type of material that can be soldered as well as solder wicking up into leads causing shortages. Epoxy adhesives on the other hand can bond to substrates such as aluminum, glass, and ceramics not commonly used in soldering applications. Silver filled epoxies vary in physical properties but are generally very…

Ferrite Core Bonding – Epoxies, UV Cure Adhesives

Bonding Ferrite Core Halves for Transformers Adhesives have several advantages in joining ferrite halves over mechanical clips. Adhesives help reduce weights as well as help reduce rattle and hum in transformers. Different types of adhesives can be used for this depending on the manufacturer's needs and process. One component epoxies are typical. UV cure adhesives and two-component epoxies are also heavily used for ferrite core bonding. One Part epoxy for…

UV Cure Adhesives

UV-Cure (Light Cure) adhesives are generally single component polymers systems specifically designed to cure when exposed to certain wavelengths of light. This technology has developed over time to include UV, UV-Vis, and LED light curing adhesives. The most common chemistries utilized in light curing adhesives are acrylics and epoxies. Just like standard adhesives, light cure adhesives have a wide range of physical and cured properties. Properties Single-component light-curing adhesive Curing…

EC-1030FL – High Temperature Potting Compound

EpoxySet (Lincoln, RI) introduces EC-1030FL, a flexible, two part epoxy potting compound. This high temperature potting compound is designed to replace silicone potting compounds where superior bond strength is needed. EC-1030FL, a high temperature potting compound, will prevent stresses to components while temperature cycling without degradation. Advantages over other high temperature potting compound include better adhesion, higher impact resistance, and lower cost. A 10-15 minute work time (at elevated temperature),…

NASA Outgassing Adhesive

NASA developed a method to screen low outgassing material to be used in space. The test determines the volatile content of material samples placed in a heated vacuum chamber. ASTM E595 is the standard test method for measuring outgassing in adhesives and other polymer materials. Results are highly dependent on how the adhesive is cured. Results of the test vary based on cure. Once the sample is cured according to manufacturer suggested cure…
