Fast-Cure Epoxy With Unlimited Work Life

Jan. 6, 2005
SC 2000 Series single-component epoxy has an unlimited work life, yet rapidly cures with heat to bond metals, ceramic, glass, concrete, and other substrates.

The Series provides good thermal stability, resists corrosion, and fills gaps. SC 2001 has a 250,000-cps viscosity at 75°F and good thermal conductivity for potting and encapsulating. The epoxy can be induction cured (4 sec/500 W) and has a service temperature ranging from -40 to 300°F. SC 2002 is a structural adhesive that resists cutting and motor oil, unleaded gasoline, and potassium-hydroxide solutions to 20%. It bonds well to steels, including stainless, mild-carbon, galvanized, tin-plated, and unfinished, as well as to aluminum, ceramics, glass, wood, concrete, and fabric. It has a 65,000-cps viscosity at 75°F and withstands temperatures from -60 to 300°F. SC 2003 is more viscous than SC 2002 (240,000 cps), resists cutting and motor oil, unleaded gasoline, and sodium-hydroxide solutions to 50%. Its service temperature range goes from -40 to 300°F. SC 2004 is an adhesive/sealant with good resistance to aluminum-sulfate solutions to 10%, as well as cutting oil and unleaded gasoline. It is reportedly well suited for assembling steel and aluminum food-processing equipment. It has a 285,000-cps viscosity and stands up to -60 to 300°F temperatures.
