Master Bond Super Gel 9 is a urethane modified epoxy gel that can be employed in a variety of applications. Some of the most common include the encapsulation of sensitive electronic parts and sealing optical components. This multifunctional system is also widely used in the aerospace, electronic, optical, electro-optical and other specialty industries. The product has a low Shore A hardness of about 5-10. This softness allows it to be easily repairable making it ideal for retrieving components with a sharp knife or razor blade. It will not shatter during this process. These properties also enable the gel to withstand rigorous thermal cycling and thermal/mechanical shock. This product has a two to one mix ratio by weight or volume, along with a low viscosity and exotherm enabling it to be cast in larger sections up to 2-3 inches thick. It bonds well to an array of substrates, such as metals, glass, ceramics and many rubbers and plastics. It has a long working life of 7-9 hours depending on the mass that is mixed (the smaller the mass, the longer the working life). It resists many chemicals including water, oils and fuels. The service temperature range is -100°F to +200°F.
