Why Choose EPON™ & EPIKURE™ Epoxy Resins

EPON™ & EPIKURE™ Epoxy Resins

EPON™ & EPIKURE™ epoxy resins and systems have excellent adhesion to a very broad range of substrates. Its low shrinkage exhibited by the systems during curing results in lower stress levels in the finished piece than found in other polymer systems with higher values of shrinkage. This contributes to strong, longer-lived fabricated items.  These systems do not form products during the curing reactions. There are no volatile materials that can lead to voids. Epoxy resins provide excellent electrical insulating characteristics and excellent chemical resistance to a wide variety of corrosive media, especially resistant to caustic as well as acids and solvents.
