Flexible Epoxy Resins for Higher Solids

For resin applications requiring lower solution viscosity with higher solids, extra flexibility and toughness, Hexion provides a range of options:

  • EPON™ Resin 872 is an epoxy resin modified for flexibility and toughness, useful in applications where thermal shock or impact must be withstood.
  • EPON Resin 872, 873 and 874 series modified epoxy solutions at 75-90% solids are also available. These may be provided in xylene or in a mixture of methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) and xylene or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK).
