High-Strength, Long-Term Durability, and Functional Toughness
EPX 82 is a high-strength epoxy-based engineering material with excellent long-term durability and mechanical properties comparable to lightly glass-filled thermoplastics (e.g. 20% GF-PBT, 15% GF-Nylon). EPX 82 has a heat deflection temperature ranging from 104°C to 130°C (depending on conditioning) and the functional toughness required for a variety of automotive and industrial applications such as connectors, brackets, and housings.
Ultimate Tensile Strength
Elongation At Break
Impact Strength (Notched)
Heat Deflection Temperature
EPX 82 shows no surface blemishes and minimal change in tensile properties after chemical exposure simulating splash contact per USCAR-2 conditions.
EPX 82 has excellent retention of material properties during high temperature aging, temperature/humidity cycling, and thermal shock.
EPX 82 passes stringent odor, fogging, and emissions standards required for interior automotive applications.

APTIV and Ford Trust EPX 82
“EPX 82 is the only material on the market that lends its self to automotive.”
Daniel Baker Manufacturing Engineering, Fast Radius
These applications combine a need for functional toughness, stiffness, and temperature resistance, in addition to isotropy, great surface finish, and accuracy.
This T2 connector requires toughness, stiffness, temperature resistance, chemical resistance, accuracy, and surface finish.
Demanding brackets often require toughness, stiffness, temperature resistance, accuracy, and occasionally chemical resistance.
Housings, especially in consumer facing parts, require toughness, stiffness, temperature resistance, accuracy, and a great surface finish.
