New White Paper: Understanding Low Outgassing Adhesives
December 8, 2014
Engineers often want to know whether an adhesive is low outgassing or generic…
While there are cases when nothing but a low outgassing product will do, the truth is that many so-called generic adhesives inherently have low outgassing levels. What’s more, most bonding, potting, encapsulation and sealing applications don’t need to meet a defined outgassing specification. Here’s a guide to understanding when low outgassing adhesives are the right choice.
Toughened Epoxy Features Exceptional High Strength Properties
Combining high shear and peel strength, Supreme 10HT is a versatile system with convenient handling. This one part system eliminates complicated mixing and cures in just 60-75 minutes at 250°F. It can withstand severe environments ranging from cryogenic temperatures down to 4K up to 400°F.

Silver Conductive Epoxy Meets NASA Low Outgassing Specifications
With exceptionally low volume resistivity, EP21TDCS-LO surpasses the existing performance parameters of commercially available, electrically conductive adhesive formulations. This compound has high toughness and impressive peel strength. It cures at room temperature and has a convenient one to one mix ratio by weight or volume. EP21TDCS-LO passes NASA low outgassing requirements and is serviceable over the temperature range of 4K to 275°F.

Optically Clear, Cryogenically Serviceable Epoxy
EP29LPSP is a two component, low viscosity epoxy system for bonding, sealing and coating. This epoxy not only functions at temperatures as low as 4K, but also withstands cryogenic shocks. Additionally, it meets NASA low outgassing requirements. EP29LPSP provides superior physical strength, high chemical resistance, excellent electrical insulation and outstanding optical clarity.

High Viscosity UV Compound Passes NASA Low Outgassing Tests
UV10TKLO-2 is a special one component UV curable epoxy modified system for high performance bonding, sealing and encapsulation. This system can be cured up to 1/16 of an inch and can be easily “layered” to higher levels. Most significantly, its low outgassing properties enable this UV product to be used in a wide array of optical, electro-optical and vacuum applications that until now have been “off limits” for UV curable epoxies.
