Provided in coordinated colors to match Durcon epoxy sinks and laboratory countertop materials and as supplied by Total Lab Solutions. Epoxy adhesive is a two-component pigmented epoxy resin compound of resin and hardener for use in application and installation to join countertops, apply splashes or finishing sink applications.
Smooth-On PC-3® epoxy cement is a two-component, black or colored epoxy resin compound designed to join, bond and caulk sections of laboratory countertop seams and splashes. The Smooth-on epoxy resin is also used to attach lipped drop-in or under counter mounted epoxy sinks to the lab countertops and for sealing the drain outlet waste to the sink opening. Epoxy resin adhesive or lab grade silicone is also suggested by architects for bonding the countertop materials to the base cabinets of steel or wood casework.
The epoxy resin cement is heavily filled, contains no volatile solvents and will adhere to vertical surfaces without sagging, and sets at room temperature with extremely low shrinkage. It is chemically stable and bonds strongly to natural and artificial stone, and thermosetting resins such as polyester, phenolic and epoxy.
PC-3 is available in pint units (1.5 lbs each, part "A" and "B" resin and hardener) and a case of pint cans contains six units and weighs 20 lbs. Smooth-on PC-3 set time is approx. 1-2 hours depending on the combination of temperature and humidity. Mixing ratio is one to one by weight or volume.
Notice: It has been determined that hard ordinary tap water contains minerals that may discolor Smooth-on Epoxy adhesive. The recommendation is to use clear isopropyl alcohol, clear lacquer thinner, acetone or mineral spirits for smoothing joints and clean-up of lab countertops.
PC-3 Black Epoxy adhesive will freeze at sustained temperatures below 32 degree F. If a freeze has taken place, bring the products into a warm enclosed room and allow to recover at room temperature for a period of time. Stir each part "A" and "B" individually and then mix 1 to 1 ratio for proper application. MSDS available upon request.
