Multi-Seals Intros Low-Temp Cure Preforms
Epoxy preforms.
Manchester, CT — Uni-form epoxy preforms, manufactured by Multi-Seals, are now available in a low cure-temperature epoxy called DC-202LT. DC-202LT will cure as fast as 5 minutes at 175°C (350°F) or at temperatures as low as 100°C (212°F) for 2 hours. This makes DC-202LT especially suitable for sealing components that cannot withstand the cure temperatures of many heat-activated epoxies.

The faster cure of DC-202LT is also a benefit for large-scale sealing operations that require quicker cure schedules. A final advantage of DC-202LT is that it maintains a low flow during cure. This high viscosity provides a greater control of epoxy movement, which prevents the sealant from covering unwanted areas of a component.

Like all Uni-forms, DC-202LT epoxy preforms are one-part epoxy resins that are solid at room temperature. When heated, Uni-forms melt and cure, forming a consistent seal that protects components from dust, moisture, oil, flux, solvents, conformal coatings, and other contaminants. Close tolerances on preform configurations, consistent pre-mixed ratios of resin to catalyst, and consistent viscosity from beginning to end of batch ensure uniform, high-quality results. Preforms can be dispensed as rapidly as 200 to 600 parts per minute with little or no operator training, and extensive operator experience is not required to produce uniform results. Preforms also eliminate pot-life concerns and costly cleanup procedures. Uni-forms are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and materials to accommodate diverse applications.
