EPON™ Resin 824

 

 

Product Description

EPON™ Resin 824 is a liquid epoxy resin that was developed for high crystallization resistance. This product is a modified bisphenol A based resin with low viscosity that does not contain reactive diluents, benzyl alcohol or solvents.

 

 

Application Areas/Suggested Uses

EPON Resin 824 brings significant benefits to applications where a combination of low resin viscosity and crystallization resistance are needed. These end uses include:

  • Solventless flooring applications (glaze coats, self-leveling floors, trowellable floors)
  • Solventless tank linings for general industrial applications
  • Low VOC coating formulations
  • Adhesives
  • Encapsulants
 

 

Benefits

  • Higher performance and crystallization resistance compared to alternative low viscosity, liquid epoxy resins
  • Very good wetting and adhesion to concrete and metal surfaces
  • Resin viscosity comparable to a standard Bis F liquid resin
