EPON™ Resin 8201



Product Description

EPON™ Resin 8201 is a liquid epoxy resin blend with superior resistance to pigment and filler settling; thus giving greater stability to highly-filled compounding formulations. This resin has a low level of monofunctional diluent ( HELOXY™ Modifier 62) to reduce viscosity, provide better wetting, yield higher filler acceptance and improve bubble release.  Because of these features, EPON Resin 8201 offers superior resistance to foaming under vacuum processing

  • Adhesives
  • Flooring
  • Tooling
  • Electrical casting and encapsulation
  • Grouting compounds
  • High solids coatings



  • Low viscosity for easy pumping and handling
  • High resistance to filler settling
  • Low foaming
