EP21TDC-7 offers excellent thermal shock resistance and has a peel strength of >40 pli. It has a service operating temperature range of from -100degF to 250degF.

Master Bond EP21TDC-7 spreads evenly and smoothly. It is 100 per cent reactive and no solvents, diluents or volatiles are emitted during cure. Cures can be accelerated by exposure to heat. EP21TDC-7 has a mix ratio of 1 to 7 by weight. Particularly noteworthy is its ability to cure underwater.

EP21TDC-7 offers superior electrical insulation properties and resistance to water, oil and many chemicals. It has a tensile strength of >1,000 psi and a volume resistivity of >1012 ohm-cm. Additionally it will adhere to rubber surfaces without time consuming surface preparation.
