The EP42HT 2ND2 has a paste like consistency and facilitates the adhesive's application when bonding vertical surfaces. This no-run two part epoxy fully complies with the testing requirements for USP Class VI biocompatibility. It cures readily at ambient temperatures and exhibits superior thermal stability for service up to 450°F. It forms high strength bonds that are unaffected by sterilization processes, such as radiation, ethylene oxide, chemical sterilants, and steam, along with outstanding resistance to inorganic and organic acids, alkalis, and organic solvents. The cured biocompatible epoxy adhesive is an excellent electrical insulator with a volume resistivity greater than >10 14 ohm-cm.
