Non-halogenated epoxy resin system features outstanding flame resistance and minimal smoke generation

Master Bond : 20 December, 2004  (New Product)
Master Bond has developed a new non-halogenated epoxy resin system called EP21HTFR-1 which offers outstanding flame resistance and minimal smoke generation even upon prolonged exposure to open flames.
Master Bond has developed a new non-halogenated epoxy resin system called EP21HTFR-1 which offers outstanding flame resistance and minimal smoke generation even upon prolonged exposure to open flames. Based upon new proprietary in-house technology Master Bond EP21HTFR-1 is a two-component epoxy resin system with a user-friendly one to one mix ratio. It cures readily at ambient or more quickly at elevated temperatures and has a service capability up to 400F. Unlike other commercially available flame retardant compounds, it does not emit any halogens as well as other noxious and/or toxic vapours even when subjected to open flames for prolonged time periods. In addition the EP21HTFR-1 is UL 94V.0 pending.

Master Bond Polymer System EP21HTFR-1 is designed for bonding, sealing and casting applications and can be applied by all conventional methods. A lower viscosity version called EP21HTFR-1LV is available to facilitate casting uses. The cured EP21HTFR-1 exhibits remarkably high physical strength properties as well as superior resistance to mechanical shock and vibration. Electrical insulation properties are excellent. Master Bond EP21HTFR-1 has superior chemical resistance to water, salt solutions, fuels and many other organic as well as inorganic chemicals even after long exposure periods. The service temperature range is an impressive -65 to +400F. EP21HTFR-1ís flame resistant capability to withstand exposure to open flames with minimal smoke and/or generation of noxious and/or toxic gases makes it the preferred choice for critical aerospace, electronic and industrial assemblies where the flammability potential in service must be minimised and product safety is a primary consideration.
