OMEGABOND™ epoxy and OMEGATHERM™ thermal conducting paste are easy to use epoxies and silicone products. They are specially formulated for permanent bonding of thermocouples, thin film RTDs, thermistors and other temperature sensors, to most surfaces–metals, ceramics, glass, plastics, paper products. OMEGABOND™ and OMEGATHERM™ products are compounded and packaged for convenient, easy mixing and application. Each formulation exhibits important characteristics necessary for accurate, fast, reliable temperature measurement. These are: good adhesion and strength, high temperature rating, high thermal conduction, high electric insulation, thixotropic consistency, fast cure, and easy application.

In one compartment is the resin, the other the pre-measured catalyst. To use, remove the divider, mix the two components by kneading the pouch, then snip off a corner to dispense. Each “Twin Pak” comes with an instruction sheet, enclosed in a clear, heat-sealed plastic envelope.
