Hazardous Handling Fee
Aliphatic epoxy resin based on di- and tri-glydicyl ethers of glycerol with a significantly lower viscosity compared to Araldite 502. BDMA (<3%, see notes preceding) is used as the accelerator since it has lower viscosity and diffuses into tissues more rapidly. (See references below).
The viscosity of Eponate™ 12 at 25ºC is 15-21cP, WPE is 140–145 and Specific Gravity is 1.15–1.22g/ml. Other kit viscosities at 25ºC include DDSA (290cP) and NMA (225-315cP). Eponate™ 12 is hygroscopic.
Curing time is 16 to 24 hours at a temperature of 60°C or 2 to 3 hours using the PELCO BioWave®.
