EPIKOTE™ Resin 816MV


EPIKOTE Resin 816MV is a low viscosity epoxy resin produced from bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin, and containing an added proportion of Cardura E10P (glycidyl ester of neodecanoic acid) as a reactive diluent. EPIKOTE 816MV is of low volatility and mild odour which give the resin its agreeable handling characteristics. EPIKOTE 816MV provides a good level of reactivity, mechanical performance and chemical resistance. In addition, EPIKOTE 816MV is considered to have a good resistance to crystallisation.


  • Low viscosity
  • Low volatility
  • Good resistance for crystallization
  • Excellent pigment/filler and substrate wetting
  • Imparts good mechanical  performance
