Master Bond announced its EP42HT-4AOMed Black 2-part medical device epoxy. It is biocompatible and non-cytotoxic, passing both USP Class VI and ISO 10993-5 certifications.
This medical device epoxy withstands aggressive chemical sterilants, radiation and repeated cycles of autoclaving.
EP42HT-4AOMed Black offers both cryogenic serviceability and heat resistance with a service temperature range from 4K to 400°F. Its thermal conductivity measures 9-10 BTU•in/(ft2•hr•°F) and its volume resistivity is greater than 1014 ohm-cm.
This adhesive bonds well to metals, composites, glass, ceramics, rubbers and plastics and features a tensile modulus of 500,000-550,000 psi, a compressive strength of 24,000-26,000 psi, and a tensile strength of 7,000-8,000 psi.
This epoxy can cure at room temperature, yet faster cures can be achieved by heat curing.
Once mixed, this versatile adhesive has very good flow properties, making it suitable for bonding, sealing and coating applications. Upon curing, EP42HT-4AOMed Black exhibits very low shrinkage, low exotherm and can be used for castings up to 2-3 inches thick.
