HACKENSACK, N.J.—Master Bond Inc. is out with a two-part epoxy that can be used as an adhesive, sealant, coating or encapsulant.
The Hackensack-based company said Master Bond EP21ARLV is a low-viscosity epoxy coating featuring acid resistance.
The material can withstand prolonged exposure to 70 percent sulfuric acid, 10 percent nitric acid and butyl acetate, for example, Master Bond said.
"With its low viscosity and acid resistance, EP21ARLV is a go-to material for potting and encapsulations in battery applications," said Rohit Ramnath, senior product engineer, in a statement. "This combination is especially useful in applications where protection from acids is crucial."
EP21ARLV cures at room temperature but adding heat speeds that process and is "vital for optimizing acid resistance," the company said.
The compound bonds to substrates including metals, ceramics and composites as well as many plastics and rubbers. The product comes in half-pint, pint, quart and gallon container kits. Gun dispensers also are available.
