Master Bond (Hackensack, NJ) EP21AC is a two part epoxy with a non-halogenated filler that is formulated for applications where arc resistance and flame retardancy are required. Electrical arcing is a challenge for numerous electronic or electrical devices; this occurs when electricity jumps from one connection to another, resulting in an electrical breakdown. The air surrounding the current becomes ionized and arcs, which may lead to combustion and fire. EP21AC is designed primarily with the aim to prevent arcing related issues.
The system is toughened, with an elongation of 10 to 20%, and is capable of resisting thermo-mechanical stresses. It is an excellent electrical insulator with a volume resistivity greater than 1014 ohm-cm, and a dielectric constant of 4.7 at 75°F. Other noteworthy properties include a tensile strength of 5,000-6,000 psi, and a tensile modulus of 300,000-350,000 psi at 75°F. It is serviceable over the temperature range of -60°C to +90°C [-75°F to +194°F].
EP21AC has a convenient 1 to 1 mix ratio by weight and is available for use in ounce kits, ½ pint, pint, quart and gallon container kits.
