EPIKOTE™ Resin 357




Product Description

EPIKOTE™ Resin 357 is a low viscosity epoxy resin based on a blend of a bisphenol F resin (produced from bisphenol F and epichlorohydrin) and a bisphenol A resin (produced from bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin), and containing an added proportion of a difunctional reactive diluent.


The resin has a low volatility and is nearly inodorous, factors which are responsible for its agreeable handling characteristics.




Application Areas/Suggested Uses 

Low viscous epoxy resin with a wide range of applications, especially for filled formulations. EPIKOTE™ Resin 357 shows no tendency for crystallization and is therefore preferably suitable for self leveling floorings, solvent-free coatings, cast resin formulations, mastics and adhesives.




  • Low viscosity
  • Crystallization-free
  • Low odor
  • Very good mechanical performance
