EPIKOTE™ Resin 1163 and 1163-T-60

Description

EPIKOTE™ Resin 1163, a highly brominated epoxy resin, is designed for applications requiring a high degree of flammability resistance. It is a solid epoxy resin with a relatively low softening point and will sinter or block at room temperature. EPIKOTE Resin 1163 is commonly handled in solvent for laminating applications, as a hot melt for casting and molding compound applications, or as a blend with liquid epoxy resins for miscellaneous casting, potting, encapsulation and floor topping uses that require processing at ambient or slightly elevated temperatures.

EPIKOTE Resin 1163 is also commercially available as a solution in toluene at 60 weight percent solids, designated as EPIKOTE Resin 1163-T-60.

EPIKOTE Resin 1163 is a reaction product of tetrabromobisphenol A and epichlorohydrin.
