EPON™ Resin 2014



Product Description

EPON™ Resin 2014 is a fusion derived solid bisphenol A/epichlorohydrin epoxy resin that is blended with an epoxy phenolic novolac resin to yield a product designed specifically for functional and decorative epoxy powder coating applications. This resin is suitable for applications such as high performance finishes for automotive parts, electrical insulation coatings, appliance primers, and corrosion resistant pipe and concrete reinforcing bar coatings.




  • Extremely clean. This is achieved by incorporating special process techniques that include multiple filtration of the products.
  • Consistent cure response with a wide variety of curing agents.
  • Extremely low levels of hydrolyzable chlorine.
  • Uniform properties from lot to lot.

Processing/How to use



Powder coatings formulated with EPON Resin 2014 provide all of the benefits traditionally associated with epoxy coatings plus two additional features. Like EPON Resin 2004 type products, EPON Resin 2014 exhibits exceptionally low levels of hydrolyzable chlorine, making it suitable for use in electrical insulation coatings. Also, the addition of the epoxy phenolic novolac resin promotes superior chemical and corrosion resistance.


EPON Resin 2014 can be used in thin film decorative powder coatings where a tough, yet attractive, surface is desired. As with all of our powder type resins, the low concentration of particulates and low moisture content of these products aid in obtaining a smooth coating free of surface defects.


Identification and Classification

Chemical Abstract Service Registry Number: No numbers are available because EPON Resin 2014 is a mixture. The components, can be found in the TSCA inventory and are listed as follows:

Base epoxy resin: CAS No. 25036-25-3

Epoxy phenolic novolac resin: CAS No. 28064-14-4


FDA Status

Paragraph 175.300 in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations permits and regulates the use of epoxy resins such as cured EPON Resin 2014 as indirect food additives in food contact applications.


Curing agents and catalysts for EPON Resin coating systems are also regulated under several sections of Title 21, for example 175.300 and 177.2280, and are subject to the limitations imposed by these sections and the general requirements of good manufacturing practices. Consult these sections for specific examples.
