Featuring silver filler, EP3HTS-LO is electrically conductive with a low volume resistivity of less than 0.001 ohm-cm. It also has a thermal conductivity of 12-15 BTU•in/(ft²•hr•°F) [1.73-2.16 W/(m·K)]. EP3HTS is dimensionally stable and bonds well to metals, glass, composites, ceramics and many plastics. It withstands a variety of chemicals such as water, oils, fuels and cleaning agents. This high temperature resistant system is serviceable over the wide temperature range of -60°F to +400°F.

As a one part compound, EP3HTS-LO offers convenient handling with no mixing and an unlimited working life at room temperature. This smooth thixotropic paste can be readily dispensed from a syringe. It polymerizes quickly at elevated temperatures with cure schedules of 45-50 minutes at 250°F or 20-30 minutes at 300°F.

EP3HTS-LO is available for use in glass jars and syringes. It has a minimum shelf life of 3 months and a maximum of 6 months at ambient temperatures in its original, unopened containers.
