Original Press Release

Buehler Announces New Improved Epokwick FC Castable Mounting System

Press release date: February 22, 2017

Fast Cure, Low Viscosity and Zero Shrinkage

Buehler, a global industrial manufacturer of value-added consumables and specialty material testing equipment announces the commercial release of the next generation EpoKwick FC (Fast Curing), a unique clear epoxy system. EpoKwick FC is formulated specifically for applications requiring enhanced edge protection like thermal spray coatings used in the aerospace, automotive and energy industries.

Material scientists and quality control laboratories testing metals, alloys, carbides, and ceramics will benefit from the EpoKwick FC when samples cannot withstand the higher temperatures and pressures of a press and/or when the number of samples processed does not justify the expense of a mounting press. Additionally, EpoKwick FC is the epoxy mounting choice for when fast curing time, low shrinkage and low viscosity is valued in a busy laboratory or testing environment.

With the evolution of EpoKwick FC, Buehler has created the lowest mix viscosity available in a room temperature cured epoxy. Lower viscosity improves sample quality by maximizing the penetration of gaps, cracks and pores.

EpoKwick FC has a strong physical adherence and zero shrinkage with most samples. With an improved sample quality and filled pores, gaps are eliminated and the pore walls remain flat to the edge.
