EPIKOTE Resin 818 is a low viscosity epoxy resin produced from bisphenol A and F resins diluted with CARDURA™ E10P (glycidyl ester of neodecanoic acid) as a reactive diluent. EPIKOTE 818 is of low volatility and provides no tendency to crystallisation even at sub-zero conditions, low colour and good pigment and filler wetting properties.

Benefits

  • Low viscosity
  • Low volatility
  • No tendency to crystallization
  • Excellent pigment/filler and substrate wetting
  • Imparts good mechanical  performance
