How and when should you purchase epoxy  material in premixed and frozen syringes?



To further reduce your handling and increase your process control, you can purchase the material in premixed and frozen syringes.  In this case, the material will be measured, mixed, degassed and flash frozen.  Here the material must be shipped on dry ice and stored in a -40 degree C freezer.  This makes logistics a bit more complicated and expensive, but the payoff is no additional labor in preparing the material at your site.  You will simply take the syringe out of the freezer, let it sit for less than five minutes and then use it.

The typical amount of material in the two part packs or the premixed and frozen syringes are 2.5 gram and 3 ccs respectively, but of course other packing sizes are available.  Just make sure you consider the working life of your material.  Once the two parts of the material are mixed the working life is ticking.
