EPON 164

EPON™ Resin 164 is a solid multifunctional epichlorohydrin/cresol novolac epoxy resin. It combines the high thermal stability of the novolac backbone with the versatility, reactivity, and chemical resistance of epoxy resins. It is used where improved properties of cured epoxy resin systems are needed, particularly at elevated temperature and where stability of electrical properties under humid conditions are required. It finds application in electrical laminates, molding compounds, high performance aerospace composites, high temperature adhesives, powder coatings, and tooling. Benefits include:

  • An average of five reactive epoxide groups per molecule
  • Low ionic contaminants; Low saponifiable chloride
  • Easily ground into uniform particle size; Stability on storage
  • Low melt viscosity
