EPON™ Resin 1001-UY-70



Product Description

EPON™ Resin 1001-UY-70 is a 70 percent solids solution of an EPON Resin 1001F type epoxy resin in aromatic solvent 100 and 2-propoxyethanol. Systems using EPON 1001-UY-70 can be formulated to have excellent chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, and low color. This resin is used in formulating various room temperature curing industrial maintenance coatings including clears, primers, masonry surfacers, and gloss and semigloss enamels. The base resin is also available in other solvent lineups.

Processing/How to use


General Information

A wide variety of curing agents can be used with EPON 1001-UY-70, including aliphatic amines, amine adducts, tertiary amines, polyamidoamines and polyamidoamine adducts. More complete information on the use of some of these curing agents can be found in the various product bulletins describing specific curing agents.


Typical of epoxy resins, EPON 1001-UY-70 may be initially incompatible with many of the curing agents used. As the chemical reaction between the two proceeds, compatibility develops. Use of the system too soon after mixing can result in “blushing” or other film defects; to prevent this, an induction period is required.



Safety, Storage & Handling

Please refer to the MSDS for the most current Safety and Handling information.


Please refer to the Hexion web site for Shelf Life and recommended Storage information.


Alcohols and glycol ethers have a tendency to react with epoxide groups under certain conditions. As such, the weight per epoxide (WPE) and solution viscosity of this product will increase with time. Use oldest lots first and maintain modest inventories.


Exposure to these materials should be minimized and avoided, if feasible, through the observance of proper precautions, use of appropriate engineering controls and proper personal protective clothing and equipment, and adherence to proper handling procedures. None of these materials should be used, stored, or transported until the handling precautions and recommendations as stated in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for these and all other products being used are understood by all persons who will work with them. Questions and requests for information on Hexion Inc. ("Hexion") products should be directed to your Hexion sales representative, or the nearest Hexion sales office. Information and MSDSs on non-Hexion products should be obtained from the respective manufacturer.



Available in bulk and drum quantities.
