The EP42HT-2ND2MED (Black) adhesive complies with the testing requirements of USP Class VI plastics. This two-component epoxy resists recurrent autoclaving and sterilizations including radiation, steam, ethylene oxide, and chemical sterilants. It electrical insulates and has a volume resistivity over 1012 ohm-cm, a thermal expansion coefficient of 35 to 40 in./in. x 10-6/° C, a dielectric constant of 3.8, and a tensile strength exceeding 12,000 psi at ambient temperatures. Heat resistant up to 450° F, it also withstands chemicals such as inorganic and organic acids, alkalis, organic solvents, and aromatic hydrocarbons. This epoxy conveniently cures at room temperature in 48 to 72 hours.
