EP5356 Filled Moderate-viscosity Epoxy

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: EP5356 is a room temperature curing, rigid, filled system with moderate viscosity. Applications are generally electrical potting. However, tooling and prototyping uses have been successful due to minimum shrinkage and excellent duplication of fine detail. It can be cast up to ¾" thick. For thicker castings up to 3" use EP84-0223. Cured EP5356 is extremely resistant to abrasion. EP5356 uses a special "safety" activator, so its toxicity is lower than product EP5351.

APPLICATIONS: Casting of abrasion-resistant fixtures and nests for machining; electrical potting; anchoring bolts into concrete floors; leveling rough floors for machinery installation; inexpesnive alternative of tool steel for sizing gauges; production of surface plates.
