EPON™ Resin SU-8

Description

EPON™ Resin SU-8 is a polymeric solid epoxy novolac resin possessing an average epoxide group functionality around eight. EPON SU-8 is compatible with bisphenol A-based epoxy resins, imparting improved high temperature strength, thermal stability, reactivity and chemical resistance. Prepreg laminates and graphite or boron reinforced composites with EPON SU-8 attain the maximum strength retention and thermal stability possible for an epoxy matrix system at elevated temperatures. Epoxy molding powders prepared with EPON SU-8 are characterized by an outstanding combination of flow stability and short press cycles.

Benefits

  • Long shelf life
  • Micropulverized at ambient temperatures
  • Rapid development of hot hardness
  • Maximum elevated temperature strength retention
  • Improved tack qualities and lateral cohesiveness of unidirectional tapes
