RBC-3400 FR is a low viscosity, UL listed epoxy for 94 V-O flame retardency. It is designed for applications where thermal conductivity, excellent electrical insulation, high heat distortion and superior thermal shock properties are required.  RBC-3400 FR can be cured at room temperature or elevated temperature to fit a variety of applications. It can be used as a heat sink for large castings or as an encapsulant for heat generating components.

The above properties are typical of a system cured with Hardener AB-312

 

RECOMMENDED HARDENERS:

 

AB-56        A fast, room temperature curing system with good chemical and thermal properties.

 

A-121        A resilient, low viscosity system with slightly longer pot life, that exhibits excellent

                 resistance to thermal shock.

AB-312     Good resistance to heat, chemicals, thermal and mechanical shock, and good     electrical properties at high humidity.

                                                     

 

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS:  Weigh the desired amount of RBC-3400 FR into a clean container and combine with recommended hardener in the proper ratio as shown below.
