Description

Opti-tec 5006 Optically Clear ISO 10993 Epoxy Adhesive is a two component, medium viscosity epoxy with high optical clarity. It has a fast room temperature cure, which can be accelerated by heating. Opti-tec 5006 is designed for potting, encapsulation and adhesion of components where high optical clarity, good wetting and medium viscosity are important.

Opti-tec 5006 can be used for bonding glass, quartz, metal and many plastics. It has been certified as non-cytotoxic, and may be considered for use in the manufacture of medical devices.

Features & Benefits

  • Optically clear, with excellent resistance to yellowing.
  • Medium viscosity of 5,000-10,000 cps.
  • Fast cure at room or low temperature, and reaches handling strength in 30 minutes. Full cure can be achieved in 10 minutes at 65°C.
  • Non-cytotoxic
  • Meets ISO 10993-5
  • High surface energy allows Opti-tec 5006 to wet and wick between surfaces
  • Develops strong adhesion to most materials used in optics, including metals, ceramics, glass and most plastics
  • Good impact and thermal shock resistance.
  • Opti-tec 5006 is a hard material after cure and can be polished
  • Opti-tec 5006, when cured, is considered non-cytotoxic and meets the requirements of the Elution Test, ISO 10993-5

Ordering Information

OPT 5006 is available in a convenient side-by-side double syringe cartridge.

IDM 805001 syringe dispensing gun

Remove the seal and attach a static mixing nozzle to the cartridge. Place the cartridge in an IDM Syringe Gun. Squeeze the Syringe Gun trigger until some mixed epoxy comes out of the nozzle. The Syringe Gun gives good control of the adhesive flow.

For optimal results, store away from oxidising agents, oxidising materials, amines, acids, and strong alkalis. Static electricity and formation of sparks must be prevented and should avoid heat, flames, and other sources of ignition. Keep only in the original container. Keep container tightly closed, in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep containers upright. Protect containers from damage. Bund storage facilities to prevent soil and water pollution in the event of spillage. The storage area floor should be leak-tight, jointless and not absorbent.
