Serviceable over a temperature range of -50 to 120 °C, Master Bond EP30LTE-LO cures at room temperature with 85% of its maximum strength developed within 48 h. Faster cures are possible at elevated temperatures. The 100% reactive epoxy features an exceptionally low coefficient of thermal expansion of 12x10-6 in/in/°C and a low shrinkage rate of < 0.0002 in/in. It bonds well to metals, glass, ceramics, wood, vulcanized rubbers and most plastics, and produces bonds with a tensile strength over 345 bars. The electrically isolative epoxy system resists thermal cycling and chemicals including water, fuels, and many acids, bases, salts and organic solvents. It has a long working life of up to 60 minutes for a 200 gram mass. Formulated with a special blend of polymeric and inorganic materials, EP30LTE-LO has a 10 to 1 mix ratio by weight and can be easily applied with a spatula, knife, trowel, brush or paint roller. It can also be readily cast as thick as 25.4 mm without undue exotherm developing.
