Master Bond Develops X5TC,
a 1C Elastomeric System
Master Bond has developed Master Bond X5TC, an elastomeric system that has a thermal conductivity of 10-12 BTU•in/ft2•hr•°F [1.44-1.73 W/m•K] while maintaining solid electrical insulation properties.

Properties of Master Bond X5TC


  • This one part, no mix adhesive/sealant has a paste-like consistency 
  • It is very easy to use
  • It readily cures in 8-12 hours at room temperature or in 60-90 minutes at 150°F

X5TC bonds well to many substrates including metals, glass, composites, ceramics, rubbers and plastics. Since it is elastomeric, this compound is suitable for bonding dissimilar substrates and performs well when subjected to thermal cycling, vibration and shock.

Applications of X5TC


  • Aerospace
  • Electronics 
  • Specialty OEM applications

The service temperature range of this product is from -80°F to +250°F, although it can withstand brief exposure to temperatures as high as 350-400°F. It has good resistance to water and oils. This compound is available for use in ounces, ½ pints and pints containers.
