Product Description 

HELOXYTM Modifier Z8 is an aliphatic monoglycidyl ether of C12/C14-fatty alcohol.

The modifier is primarily used as a reactive diluent or viscosity reducer for liquid epoxy resins.



Application Areas/Suggested Uses

HELOXYTM Modifier Z8 is a reactive diluent for a variety of uses for solvent-free coatings based on epoxy resins. Its main fields of application are formulated, low-viscous epoxy resins with good leveling, surfaces and wetting properties, used for civil engineering, paints and adhesives.      


HELOXYTM Modifier Z8 is added to the epoxy resin in a ratio of 5 – 20 %.




  • Efficient viscosity reduction of liquid epoxy resins
  • Excellent substrate and filler wetting characteristics
  • Non-offensive odor

Safety, Storage & Handling

Please refer to the MSDS for the most current Safety and Handling information.


HELOXYTM Modifier Z8 should be stored at room temperature in conditions such that moisture is excluded, in the original containers kept tightly closed. Under these conditions the shelf life should be a minimum of three years from the date of certification.


HELOXYTM Modifier Z8 may become cloudy and crystallize when stored below 5 °C. This is reversible under heating and stirring and does not influence the quality.
