EPON™ Resin 1001F is a low molecular weight solid epoxy resin derived from a liquid epoxy resin and bisphenol-A. EPON Resin 1001F is used for its application or end-use advantages in both structural and surface-coating applications as follows:
Because of the excellent pre-impregnation properties, EPON Resin 1001F is used in:
Because of these performance properties, amine and polyamide cured coatings are especially
EPON Resin 1001F is used to upgrade thermosetting acrylic resins into coatings with greatly
Because of these specific properties, these systems are used extensively for automotive
Since solutions of this versatile epoxy resin are the preferred products for most of the aforementioned applications, Hexion provides solutions of EPON Resin 1001F in several solvents to assist customers in handling this product.
