EPIKOTE™ Resin 232

Description

EPIKOTE Resin 232 is a low-medium viscosity epoxy resin consisting of a blend of a bisphenol A resin (produced from bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin) and a bisphenol F resin (produced from bisphenol F and epichlorohydrin). EPIKOTE Resin 232 contains no diluent. Its principal feature, as determined in laboratory tests is that it does not crystallise on storage. Furthermore, the addition of reactive diluents, e.g. in the production of formulated compositions, has no adverse effect on crystallisation resistance. EPIKOTE Resin 232 also provides good pigment wetting and good resistance to filler settling. (Note: EPIKOTE Resins 232 is one product out of a series. There are other resin blends of similar type; they offer the formulator a choice of viscosity).

Benefits

  • Low-medium viscosity without diluent
  • High resistance against crystallisation
  • Good pigment wetting
  • Imparts high mechanical performance
