Electrically Conductive Silver Filled Adhesive Thermally Conductive Silver Epoxy Fast dry 4 hours
AA-DUCT X1 is a two parts electrically and thermally conductive epoxy specially designed for fast 4 hour cure time. It has a work time of 5 minutes therefore the mixing and application must be performed quickly, This product is characterized by a wide operating temperature range from –20 to +200°F. Electro-Bond X1 is recommended for thermal and electrical application for production environments due to its faster bodning time and excellent shear strength.

HOW TO USE:
1) Carefully clean and dry all surfaces to be bonded. Please mix thoroughly and be ready to apply as the product begins to dry within 3 to 5 minutes.
2) Apply AA-DUCT X1 completely mixed adhesive to the prepared surfaces, and gently press these surfaces together. Contact pressure is adequate for strong, reliable bonds; however, maintain contact until adhesive is completely cured.
3) Some separation of components is common during shipping and storage. For this reason, it is recommended that the contents of the shipping container be thoroughly mixed prior to use.
4) Some ingredients in this formulation provided may crystallize when subjected to low temperature storage. A gentle warming cycle of 52°C for 30 minutes prior to mixing components may be necessary. Crystallized epoxy components do not react as well as liquid components and should be re-dissolved prior to use for best results.
This epoxy can be supplied in various different packages.
