EP&T Magazine   


MASTER BOND EP42HT-2ND2MED (Black) Medical grade epoxy fully complies with the testing requirements of USP Class VI plastics. This two component product resists recurrent autoclaving and sterilizations including radiation, steam, ethylene oxide, and chemical sterilants. Product serves well as electrical insulator with a volume resistivity over 1012 ohm-cm, a thermal expansion coefficient of 35 to 40 in/in x 10-6/C, a dielectric constant of 3.8, and a tensile strength exceeding 12,000 psi at ambient temperatures. Heat resistant up to 450F, it also withstands chemicals such as inorganic and organic acids, alkalis, organic solvents, and aromatic hydrocarbons.
