EPIKOTE™ Resin 144

 

 

 

Product Description

EPIKOTETM Resin 144 is a medium 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).

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

 

 

 

Application Areas/Suggested Uses

 

Medium viscous epoxy resin with a wide range of applications, especially for filled formulations. EPIKOTE™ Resin 144 shows no tendency for crystallization and is therefore preferably suitable for coatings, mastics and adhesives.

 

 

Benefits

 

  • Medium viscosity
  • Crystallization-free
  • Low odor
