EPON™ Resin 815C

 

 

Product Description

EPON Resin 815C is a low viscosity liquid bisphenol A based epoxy resin containing a commercial grade of n-butyl glycidyl ether. EPON Resin 815C is functionally equivalent to EPON Resin 815, and is suitable as a replacement for EPON Resin 815 in most applications.

 

 

Application Areas/Suggested Uses

  • Adhesives
  • Electrical casting and encapsulation
  • Contact and vacuum bag laminating
  • Solventless coatings
  • Floor topping and grouting compositions
  • Tooling
 

 

Benefits

  • Low viscosity, allows for easy pumping and wetting of pigments and fillers
  • 100% reactive. Reacts with a full range of curing agents
  • Provides minimal reduction of performance properties
