EPIKOTE™ Resin 215

Description

EPIKOTE Resin 215 is a low viscosity epoxy resin produced from bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin, and containing an added proportion of a mono-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. As judged by laboratory tests EPIKOTE 215 is considered to be prone to crystallisation on storage.

Benefits

  • Low viscosity
  • Low volatility
  • Excellent pigment/filler and substrate wetting
  • Imparts good mechanical  performance
