EPIKOTE™ Resin 5108-W-60A

Description

EPIKOTE Resin 5108-W-60A is a nonionic, waterborne dispersion of a highly multifunctional Bisphenol A epoxy novolac resin and is most commonly used in combination with other epoxy resin dispersions to increase the epoxide functionality of a system.  Adding EPIKOTE Resin 5108-W-60A to fiber sizing formulations will lead to increased epoxide functionality in the fiber-matrix interphase and can improve moisture, chemical and thermal performance for fiber-reinforced composites.   In cured applications, EPIKOTE Resin 5108-W-60A can be used to increase the rate of green strength or hardness development and will also contribute to improved moisture, chemical and thermal resistance.

Benefits

  • High functionality epoxy resin
  • Excellent particle size stability
  • No VOC
  • Superior hydrolytic and chemical resistance
  • High thermal resistance
  • Can be cured through epoxide functional groups
