EPON™ Resin 1002F

Description

EPON™ Resin 1002F is a solid epoxy resin derived from a liquid epoxy resin and bisphenol-A. This epoxy resin finds application in solution type coatings, as an intermediate in the preparation of epoxy esters, high performance hot melt adhesives, molding powders, and in powder coatings.

Benefits

  • Can be formulated into high performance amine or polyamide cured coatings.
  • Exhibits unique melt viscosity for hot melt adhesives.
  • Displays a desirable reactivity, rheology and electrical properties in powder coatings.
  • This resin will not “block” or sinter even at slightly elevated storage temperatures.
  • Filtered during manufacture so final product is very clean.
