Press Release Summary:
PassingÂ Navy Hex Bar Test, MIL-I-16923C, which consists of 10 cycles from -55 to +155Â°C, two-part epoxy resin 20-3301 protects electronic assemblies from thermal cycling and shock. Low viscosity epoxy flows quickly around components, giving users working time of 4–6 hr. Product is typically cured at 80Â°C for 1–2 hr, but post cure of 150Â°C for 3 hr will optimize performance properties. Applications include electronic potting and encapsulating, casting, coating, and electrical varnishes.

Epoxy Potting Compound Resists Thermal Shock and Cycling
Easy to use, two part epoxy resin 20-3301 provides electronic assemblies protection from severe thermal cycling and shock. It passes the difficult Navy Hex Bar Test, MIL-I-16923C, which consists of 10 cycles from -55 to +155°C. This toughened epoxy is low in viscosity and therefore flows quickly around components while giving users a long working time of 4-6 hours.
This product is superior to most room temperature curing epoxies in terms of chemical resistance, wide service temperature range, electrical insulation, and overall physical properties. 20-3301 is typically cured at 80°C for 1-2 hours; however a post cure of 150°C for 3 hours will enhance performance properties.
20-3301 applications include electronic potting and encapsulating, casting, coating, and electrical varnishes. This epoxy system is a good choice for high temperature applications that require a material that is not rigid or brittle.
