Tra-Con Tra-Bond F123 Color Keyed High Temperature Epoxy Adhesive
Categories: Polymer; Adhesive; Thermoset; Epoxy

Material Notes: TRA-BOND F123 is a fast cure, low viscosity, two-component epoxy formulation that signals both proper mixing and curing when bonding fiber optic bundles, potting glass fibers, and/or terminating single or multi-channel fiber optic connectors. Although this unique three-step color-change formulation unmixed components are light yellow, it turns light green on mixing, and changes again to a deep reddish-amber after the REQUIRED 100°C HIGH TEMPERATURE CURE. It exhibits good wicking, and develops strong, tough, mechanically stable bonds to a wide variety of fiber optic and optical materials that includes most metals, ceramics, glass and many plastics. TRA-BOND F123 has good impact and thermal shock resistance, and yields excellent low stress, pot-and-polish connections which do not piston during cycle tests. It is also resistant to water and weathering, vapors and gases, most petroleum products, and an extended range of organic and inorganic environments. Shorter cures at higher temperatures (e.g. 2 minutes at 120°C or 1 minute at 150°C) are also possible. An additional post-cure of 30 minutes at 150°C is recommended when application temperatures higher than 150°C are anticipated. For masses over 1/4 gram, allow material to gel for 4 hours at 25°C followed by 100°C for 5 minutes.
