This paper reports the results of measurements of the density of two types of epoxy bonding agents in the process of hardening curing from the initial liquid state to the final state at room temperature. The part played by heat shrinkage in overall shrinkage deformation is evaluated. It is shown that the shrinkage factor in relation to the state with the least density exceeds the values cited in the literature.
