Epoxies 301 and 301-2
Epo-Tek epoxies are two-part, optically transparent
epoxy systems with very low viscosity (comparable to water) which allows them
to penetrate deeply and to be infused in small crevices or cracks. They have
demonstrated excellent resistance to yellowing, and when fully cured, provide
extremely hard bond strength. They may be cured with or without heat, and are
ideal for bonding glass, ceramics, quartz, metals and most plastics. Epo-Tek 301-2, in addition, has been used in conservation
with wooden objects where it is impregnated to restore strength and to bind
the wood fibers together. In Studies in
Conservation (Vol. 31, 1986) Epo-Tek 301 placed among the five formulations found to
be most durable under high as well as low light conditions. Users refer to
the products ease of use and to the fact that it cures fully within 24 hours,
although the cure times are the main differences in the two products. Epo-Tek 301 has a shorter cure time, setting in an hour
or two at 65 C and overnight at room temperature. The 301-2 takes longer to
cure, setting in two to three hours at 80 C and in about two days at room
are suitable alternatives to Abelbond, which has
been discontinued, as well as to Hxtal NYL-1.
Epo-Tek 301 and Epo-Tek 301-2 are sold
separately and are supplied as two-part, 8-ounce kits.
