RBC-3500 Technical Data Sheet

Type:  Electronics

RBC-3500 is a medium viscosity, filled epoxy casting resin offering low shrinkage and good machineability. It can be cured at room temperature or elevated temperatures depending upon the epoxy hardener selected and the properties required. The epoxy resin itself can be warmed slightly before the addition of epoxy hardener to facilitate mixing. With proper hardener selection, #3500 epoxy resin can be used for very large as well as very small, intricate castings where good flowability and excellent air release are required.

(Note: The above properties are typical of a system cured with hardener #AB-312.)


RECOMMENDED HARDENERS:

A-110: A rigid, room temperature curing system with limited pot life and fast cure.
A-120: 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 #3500 Resin into a clean container and combine with recommended hardener in one of the ratios shown below.
