System Three Quickcure 5-Minute Epoxy Resin Bulk Bottle, 4 oz Resin, 4 oz Hardener
The Quickcure 5-minute epoxy system cures without pressure or heat in five minutes or less after the mixing of equal amounts of the two components, A and B. One can control the hardness, at least to some degree by using a slight excess of the "hardener" to make a somewhat harder cured resin. This product has very similar properties and characteristics as our 5-minute epoxy in squeeze tubes.
The product is easily dispensed from the dispensing type bottles in which it comes.
Assuming the surface is clean and dry, Quickcure 5-minute curing epoxy will provide for fast, permanent bonds to wood, fiberglass, concrete, ceramics, glass, leather and plastics. It is the ideal system if not also the most economical for anyone with a number of small "jobs" requiring a strong bond and rapid cure.
Who is System Three?
System Three Resins, Inc., since 1980, has been a leader in the manufacturing the highest quality fast curing epoxies. And as anyone who has been using fast curing epoxies knows, in the past, such epoxy products have been limited to either small blister packaging, syringe, or in larger commercial quantity bucket sizes. SPI Supplies now can offer this fast curing resin system for professional and/or hobby use and are suitable for not only a meticulous scientific worker in a research laboratory environment but also for the woodworker, craftsperson, and homeowner.
This is an often asked question. We have had favorable experience in our own laboratory using this product in the vacuum of a diffusion pumped SEM and customers have reported similar use in other SEMs. However, we would recommend the more vacuum compatible adhesive, M-Bond® 610 if the product is to be used in vacuum.
Maximum Use Temperature:
The useful temperature range of this fast curing epoxy product is -60° F to 180° F (-51° C to 82° C).
Stability in Presence of Osmium Tetroxide:
The well-cured resin is resistant to attack by osmium tetroxide. It also has high resistance to attack by most common laboratory chemicals, however in some instances, such laboratory chemicals might slightly swell the cured epoxy.
