Master Bond debuts a clear epoxy for bonding and potting optical components. Master Bond EP29LP is a multi-purpose two part optical epoxy featuring essential qualities for large casting and potting applications. It has an unusually low viscosity of 700-800 cps and an exceptionally low exotherm to a peak of 120°F. This optical adhesive adheres well to optical fibers, optical connectors, lenses and glass and forms high strength bonds of more than 3500 psi in shear. It exhibits good optical transmission that is superb for bonding and potting optical assemblies. The adhesive has a temperature range of 60°F to 250°F. Other noteworthy features include good electrical insulation properties, for an encapsulant used in electro-optics, adequate thermal conductivity and a good chemical resistance to water, fuels, acids, bases and salts.
Master Bonds Optical, Electro-Optical, Fiber Optic & Laser Products:
The Master Bond product line includes both one and two component epoxy resin compounds and one component UV curable compositions. Some of the outstanding features of the optical systems are excellent light transmission characteristics, superior non-yellowing properties and a high refraction index.
Typical applications range from bonding and potting fiber-optic cables, connectors and terminations, and upgrading the vibration and shock resistance of electro-optic assemblies. Other applications include cementing and coating optical parts, potting LED devices, optical replications, bonding ferrules and connectors, and coating or encapsulating a wide variety of electro-optic and laser components.
