i just got some arctic silver thermal epoxy. no instructions. on the website is instructions for their thermal grease.
one tube says 5 minute 1:1 part A, the other says part B. seems like it just has to be mixed and let it sit for 5 minutes then applied???........correct????
thanx

Mix equal quantities of Part A and Part B. I'm not sure if you need to let it "set up" for 5 miniutes or not. The best way to find out is to mix a little and see if it gets any stickier after it sets for 5 miniutes.

Something that they don't tell you is that you can "cut" it with actic silver thermal paste if you want to. All you need to do is mix in another equal part of the thermal paste.

Let us know what you discover!

Something I am curious to know is whether mixing AS with normal epoxy resin would work or would the heat transfer properties just be lost
