    HELOXY™ Epoxy Resin Modifiers: Ever Expanding Options

    To increase versatility in epoxy performance, Hexion offers its line of HELOXY reactive modifiers. These are epoxy functionalized alcohols, diols, polyols and acids that allow formulators to customize epoxy resin system features above and beyond what is already available in our wide selection of epoxy resins.

    HELOXY modifiers serve several functions. They are used to reduce viscosity and surface tension for improved handling and application, or to modify performance characteristics such as strength, adhesion, and flexibility. As epoxy functional materials, they react into the resin system. Once reacted, HELOXY modifiers become evenly and permanently bound into the polymer network and do not migrate to the interface under normal conditions, which makes them different and superior to solvents or nonvolatile plasticizers.

    Hexion offers three classes of HELOXY modifiers:

    ProductDescription
    HELOXY Modifier 67Polyfunctional Glycidyl Ether -

    Superior difunctional viscosity reducer. Low volatility. May be useful in water reducible systems due to some water solubility.

    HELOXY Modifier 68

    Polyfunctional Glycidyl Ether - Good difunctional viscosity reducer with minimum loss of properties. Low volatility. Most widely used viscosity modifier.

    HELOXY Modifier 71

    Flexibilizer - Improves impact resistance as well as toughness.

    HELOXY Modifier 8

    Monofunctional Aliphatic Glycidyl Ether - Lower volatility and odor.

    HELOXY Modifier 107

    Polyfunctional Glycidyl Ether - Moderate difunctional viscosity reducer with minimum loss of properties. Good for applications requiring minimum deformation under load (i.e., superior creep resistance).

    HELOXY Modifier 116

    Monofunctional Aliphatic Glycidyl Ether - Good dilution efficiency. Potential substitute for BGE.

    HELOXY Modifier 48

    Polyfunctional Glycidyl Ether - Trifunctionality increases crosslink density. Maintains or increases reactivity. Relatively efficient viscosity reducer.

    HELOXY Modifier 505

    Flexibilizer - Superior water resistance. Low odor. Good exterior color retention.

    HELOXY Modifier 61

    Monofunctional Aliphatic Glycidyl Ether - [BGE] Maximum viscosity reduction with minimum loss of physical performance. Good substrate wetting. Allows for increased filler loading.

    HELOXY Modifier 62

    Monofunctional Aromatic Glycidyl Ether - Good maintenance of performance at high dilutions. Low volatility.

    HELOXY Modifier 65

    Monofunctional Aromatic Glycidyl Ether - Moderate dilution efficiency. Good electrical properties. Low volatility.
