HELOXY™ Modifier WF

 

 

 

Product Description

 

HELOXYTM Modifier WF is an aliphatic diepoxide that imparts flexibility.

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

 

 

 

Application Areas/Suggested Uses

 

In blends with base resins and combination with cold or hot curing agents, HELOXYTM Modifier WF is used to produce elastic, impact – resistant molding compounds with very low water absorption and good ageing properties. The fraction of HELOXYTM Modifier WF in the blends can range from 5% to a maximum of 50 – 60%. However, higher levels or the sole use of HELOXYTM Modifier WF lead to very soft molding compounds with less desirable properties.

 

 

Benefits

 

  • Compatible with liquid epoxy resins
  • Non-offensive odor
  • Excellent water resistance
  • Imparts high flexibility and impact resistance to epoxy systems
