EPON™ Resin 58006

 

 

Product Description

EPON Resin 58006™ is an elastomer modified epoxy functional adduct formed from the reaction of the diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A and a carboxyl terminated butadiene-acrylonitrile elastomer. Elastomer content is approximately 40% by weight. Primary use of EPON Resin 58006 is the modification of conventional epoxy systems to increase flexibility, adhesion properties and fatigue resistance.

 

Application Areas/Suggested Uses

  • High performance adhesives featuring:
    • Higher peel and shear strengths
    • Thermal shock resistance
    • Greater fatigue resistance
     
  • Fatigue resistant composite structures
 

 

Benefits

  • High elastomer content – convenient adjustment of elastomer content
  • Compatible with conventional bisphenol A epoxies
  • Imparts improved peel strength and fatigue resistance with minimal reductin of stiffness and maximum operating temperature
  • Lower viscosity than EPON Resin 58005

General Information

EPON Resin 58006 is compatible with conventional bisphenol A based epoxy resins within the typically used range of concentrations (<50% by weight). When formulating modifications of more specialized epoxy resin systems such as those based on bisphenol F epoxies or high functionality types, use of EPON 58005 is usually preferred due to its broader range of compatibility.

 

Concentration of this modifier required for optimum performance is dependent upon factors of resin type, curing agent type, and specific performance requirements, but is generally found to be within the 20-50% by weight range. Effect of EPON Resin 58006 concentration on the working characteristics and adhesive properties of an EPON Resin 828/EPIKURE™ 3072 Curing Agent model system is illustrated by Figure 1 and data listed in Table 1. Being epoxy functional, EPON Resin 58006 can be cured with converters commonly used in conventional epoxy systems. Due to its higher weight per epoxide, adjustment of curing agent level should normally coincide with incorporation of this modifier resin. Effect of EPON Resin 58006 incorporation on the properties of standard systems cured with a representative aliphatic amine, aromatic amine, and a catalytic curative is indicated by Table 2 data. The high viscosity of EPON Resin 58006 will normally necessitate that this resin be heated in order to facilitate pumping or blending operations. Figure 2 provides guidance as to the reduction in product viscosity resulting from increasing temperatures within the 75-190 °F range.
