General Information

EPON Resin 8132 can be cured or cross-linked with a variety of curing agents depending on properties desired in the finished product. A few commonly used curing agents, recommended concentrations, curing schedules employed and performance data are displayed in Table 1. The EPON Resin 8132 is also compared with EPON Resins 815 and 813, two other popular 100% reactive diluted liquid epoxy resins.

 

For additional performance characteristics information covering adhesives and wet lay-up laminating, consult brochure SC: 67, entitled, “EPON Resin Structural Reference Manual”.
