**Handling instructions are available on LORD.com.
Curing – Allow encapsulant to cure for 20 minutes at 150°C in an elevated temperature circulating air oven or on a hot plate.
Cleanup – Disposable containers and utensils are recommended when working with epoxies. However, when disposable materials are impractical, uncured encapsulant can be removed by cleaning equipment with solvent. Solvent-cleaned utensils should be thoroughly dried before reuse; any remaining solvent can contaminate the next mixture.
