EP30LP-2 Low Viscosity Epoxy
Master Bond - Low Viscosity Epoxy
for Potting & Encapsulation
Master Bond EP30LP-2 is a two component epoxy with a low viscosity and a volume resistivity of over 1014 ohm-cm, making it well suited for potting and encapsulation applications. This high performance system can also be used for bonding and sealing.

Properties of EP30LP-2

  • It is an easy to handle compound with a convenient two to one mix ratio by weight or volume. 
  • A 100 gram batch has a 60-90 minute working life at room temperature, which can be extended by using shallower mixing vessels or mixing smaller size batches. 
  • This system is formulated to cure at room temperatures or more rapidly at elevated temperatures.

Features Excellent Optical Clarity

  • It features Shore D hardness exceeding 75.
  • It produces rigid, high strength bonds to a wide variety of substrates including metals, glass, ceramics, wood and many plastics. 
  • It offers tensile lap shear strength of over 2,700 psi, a tensile strength greater than 9,500 psi and a tensile modulus of 350,000-400,000 psi. 
Additionally, EP30LP-2 is dimensionally stable with low shrinkage upon cure. This chemically resistant product withstands exposures to water, oils, solvents, acids and bases.

Serviceable from -60°F to +250°F, EP30-2 is available for use in standard packaging container kits ranging in size from ½ pints to 5 gallons. It is also available in double barrel syringes and gun dispensers.
