Packaging, Storage and Shipping
EPON Resin 1002F is a stable material produced in flake form and packaged in a 50-pound net three-ply kraft paper bag. The product is not prone to sintering or “blocking”; however, it should be stored in an area where the temperature does not exceed 80 °F and where it is protected against moisture. EPON Resin 1002F is not a hazardous material according to Department of Transportation regulations (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49).
Formulation and Application Information
For epoxy resin amine-cured coatings consult Hexion Technical Brochure “Formulating AmineCured Coatings with EPON Resin”.
For adhesives, casting and molding applications consult Hexion Technical Brochure entitled “EPON Resin Structural Reference Manual”.
For manufacture of epoxy resin esters consult the Hexion Technical Brochure entitled “EPON Resin Esters.”
Several paragraphs in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations permit and regulate the use of epoxy resins such as cured EPON Resin 1002F as indirect food additives in food contact applications. Examples are: 175.105, 175.300, 175.320, 176.170, 176.180,177.1210, 177.2280.
Curing agents for EPON resin systems are also regulated under several sections of Title 21, for example 175.300 and 177.2280, and are subject to the limitations imposed for these sections and the general requirements of good manufacturing practices.
