0308 Urethane Adhesive

Space flight grade; designed specifically for encapsulation

0308 is an opaque amber, one-component, precision mixed, degassed, and frozen, electrically isolating, Space Flight Grade urethane adhesive designed specifically for encapsulation with highly reliable dispensing. This material has a thixotropic consistency but will exhibit limited flow upon application. 0308 exhibits low thermal conductivity and can be cured at either room or elevated temperatures. It will bond well to most substrates such as metals, glass, ceramics, and most plastics. This material meets the NASA outgassing requirements with a TML of 0.69% and a CVCM of <0.01%. The material meets NASA's outgassing requirements.
