Master Bond Epoxy Resists Abrasion
Two-part epoxy.
Hackensack, NJ — Master Bond's EP21SC-1 silicon carbide filler material delivers abrasion resistance for an array of chemical and mechanical processing applications. This epoxy has a smooth paste consistency and a non-critical one-to-one mix ratio by weight or volume. As a two-part system, it cures readily at room temperature or more quickly at elevated temperatures.

With a Shore D hardness exceeding 95, EP21SC-1 is a rigid compound that adheres well to treated metals, ceramics and many plastics. Its physical strength profile includes a tensile strength greater than 6,000 psi and a compressive strength of over 15,000 psi at room temperature.

Since the system is 100 percent reactive and does not contain any solvents or dilutents, it has minimal shrinkage when cured. In addition, EP21SC-1 is capable of withstanding a range of chemicals such as water, oils, hydraulic fluids, acids and bases. This combination of properties enables the system to be widely employed for maintenance and repair of pumps, chutes, centrifuges, impellers and tanks.

The epoxy is serviceable from -60 to +250°F (-51 to +121°C). It is a competent electrical insulator and it has a low thermal expansion coefficient. Both Parts A and B are dark gray in color and are available in standard packaging ranging from pint to 5 gallon (0.473l to 18.9l) container kits.

The epoxy provides abrasion resistance and convenient handling for bonding, coating and sealing applications. This two-component epoxy also resists a variety of chemicals.
