Master Bond EP21AOLV-1 was used in research done by a graduate student at University of Houston. Here is a quote from this work:

“Atomic force microscopy (AFM, Bruker Multimode 3) was used to study the COM crystal surface topography at a nanometer length scale. Samples were mounted on a specimen disk covered with a thin layer of thermally curable epoxy (MasterBond EP21AOLV-1). The epoxy was partially cured using a previously reported protocol whereby the sample disk was heated in an oven for ca. 20 min at 60°C [54]. Crystals retrieved on the glass slide from bulk crystallization (section 2.2) were transferred to the precured epoxy by lightly pressing the crystals against the epoxy. The crystals were immobilized on the epoxy with the [100] direction oriented normal to the specimen surface by placing the sample in an oven at 60ºC for two to three hours to completely cure the epoxy. The cantilevers used in this study were silicon nitride probes with gold reflex coating and a spring constant of 0.15 N/m (Olympus, TR800PSA).” 1
