Solid Epoxy Resins

EPON™ 1001F

EPON™ Resin 1001F is a low molecular weight solid epoxy resin derived from a liquid epoxy resin and bisphenol-A. EPON Resin 1001F is used for its application or end-use advantages in both structural and surface-coating applications as follows:

  • Structural applications: Excellent pre-impregnation properties
  • Surface coatings: Toughness, Chemical Resistance, and Durability
  • Thermosetting acrylic: Adhesion, Toughness, Detergent Resistance

EPON™ 1002F

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 include:

  • 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.

EPON™ 1004F

EPON™ Resin 1004F is a solid epoxy resin derived from bisphenol-A and epichlorohydrin. This medium molecular weight epoxy resin has an average of 4.5-5.0 hydroxyl groups per molecule plus the terminal epoxy groups. These epoxy and hydroxyl groups are usually reacted with vegetable oil acids to prepare epoxy resin esters. Epoxy esters derived from EPON Resin 1004F find application as vehicles in appliance primers, automotive primers, and in maintenance coatings. EPON Resin 1004F may be used as a partial replacement for other EPON Resins in amine or polyamide cured epoxy air dry finishes and in phenolic and amino modified epoxy baking systems. Benefits include:

  • EPON Resin 1004F contains a specific amount of esterification catalyst to control esterification reactions with vegetable oil acids.
  • EPON Resin 1004F is supplied in very large lots (greater than 100M pounds) with uniform properties.
  • EPON Resin 1004F provides special solution viscosity and reactivity properties when combined with other EPON Resins in air dry amine or polyamide cured epoxy coatings and in epoxy-phenolic or amino converted baking systems.

EPON™ 1007F

EPON™ Resin 1007F is a moderately high molecular weight solid epoxy resin derived from a liquid epoxy resin and bisphenol-A. This resin is used extensively as a vehicle in high performance industrial baking finishes. In these coatings the EPON Resin 1007F is usually reacted with urea formaldehyde or phenolformaldehyde resins to develop the desired film properties. Coatings of this type exhibit outstanding flexibility and adhesion as well as exceptional resistance to chemicals and solvents. Some of the more important applications for EPON Resin 1007F/urea-formaldehyde or phenol formaldehyde coatings are linings for metal containers, appliance primers, metal furniture finishes and clear coatings for brass. Benefits include:

  • This resin is extremely clean. It is substantially free from extraneous materials, rendering it suitable in certain powder coating applications.
  • This product imparts unique melt viscosity characteristics to hot melt adhesives, molding powders, and powder coatings.
  • EPON Resin 1007F provides special solution viscosity and reactivity properties when combined with other EPON Resins in air dry amine or polyamide cured coatings.
