EPIKOTE™ Resin 247

 

 

Product Description

EPIKOTE Resin 247 is a low viscosity epoxy resin based on bisphenol A and bisphenol F resin, and containing an added proportion of a difunctional epoxidised alcohol as a reactive diluent. The resin has a low volatility and lack of odour which account for its agreeable handling characteristics. The low viscosity provides for excellent filler and substrate wetting and the resin has good resistance to filler settling.

 

Application Areas/Suggested Uses

 

Compositions for the building and civil engineering industries, e.g. flooring compounds, adhesives, mortars and grouts. Solvent-free and high-solids coatings. Laminating binders

 

Benefits

 

  • Low viscosity
  • Low volatility
  • No tendency to crystallization
  • Good pigment/filler and substrate wetting
  • Imparts excellent mechanical  performance
