EPIKOTE™ Resin 862


EPIKOTE Resin 862 is a low viscosity epoxy resin produced from bisphenol F resin and epichlorohydrin. It contains no diluent. EPIKOTE 862 provides good pigment wetting and good resistance to filler settling. As judged by laboratory tests, (see bulletin EK 1.5.11 for a description of the test method) EPIKOTE 862 is considered to be prone to crystallisation on storage, particularly at low temperatures.


  • Low viscosity without diluent
  • Imparts high mechanical performance
  • Imparts high resistance against crystallisation when blended with EPIKOTE 828 type resin
  • Imparts good chemical resistance
  • Good pigment wetting
  • Good resistance to pigment settling
