Product Description

Processing:

It is advantageous to process Epoxylite ® 006-0841 at ambient temperature as exposure to elevated
temperatures will shorten the life of the resin, however if component pre-heating is required, for example in the impregnation of high voltage machines then 30-35°C would provide the optimum temperature range.

When using Epoxylite ® 006-0841, care should be taken to ensure that the resin is not exposed to components with surface temperatures in excess of 40°C and that the resin stock tank contents does not exceed 25°C.

Development of bond strength is a function of curing temperature and time. For applications where high mechanical strength is required from the impregnant, a cure temperature of 160-170°C as measured on the component, is the optimum.
For a more complete guide to the processing of components and machines in Epoxylite ® 006-0841 please refer to the separate processing data sheet for this product.

Containers of Epoxylite ® 006-0841 should be stored in a cool place away from direct sunlight or other heat sources.

Maintenance of Resin:

The viscosity and gel-time of Epoxylite ® 006-0841 in tanks should be regularly monitored and maintained within the recommended limits.

A Tank Sample Testing service is available from ELANTAS UK on request.
