Product Announcement from Master Bond, Inc.
Master Bond EP30-1 is an optically clear epoxy designed for high performance fiber optics bonding, coating, potting and encapsulation applications. This low viscosity, two part epoxy cures at room temperature or more rapidly at elevated temperatures. It is especially recommended where low viscosity is required for ease of application and bonded, coated or cast assemblies must exhibit superior dimensional stability. Linear shrinkage after cure is exceptionally low-0.0003 inches/in. The cured epoxy resin compound has a spectral transmittance of over 97% (3100-9000 A). 100% reactive, it does not contain any solvents or other volatiles.
Master Bond clear epoxy EP30-1 produces high strength rigid bonds, coatings and castings with excellent chemical resistance to water, oil and most organic solvents, over the exceptionally wide temperature range of -60°F to more than 250°F. Adhesion to both similar and dissimilar materials including metals, glass, ceramics, wood, vulcanized rubbers and many plastics is excellent. The hardened material is an excellent electrical insulator. Color of part A is clear, part B clear. Master Bond Polymer System EP30-1 is widely used in the fiber optics field for applications ranging from bonding ferrules and connectors to potting LED devices as well as fiber optics components.
