Low Viscosity, Liquid Epoxy Resin Manufactured From Epichlorohydrin and Bisphenol-F, Contains No Diluents or Modifiers
EPON Resin 862 (Diglycidyl Ether of Bisphenol F) is a low viscosity, liquid epoxy resin manufactured from epichlorohydrin and Bisphenol-F. This resin contains no diluents or modifiers. EPON Resin 862 may be used as the sole epoxy resin or combined with other resins such as EPON Resin 828. When blended with EPON 828, EPON 862 provides a technique to reduce viscosity with no sacrifice in chemical and solvent resistance properties, and the blended resin will exhibit improved crystallization resistance properties when compared to the neat, liquid, Bisphenol-A or Bisphenol-F type resins. When EPON Resin 862 is cross-linked with appropriate curing agents, superior mechanical, adhesive, electrical and chemical resistance properties can be obtained.
EPON Resin 862 Application Areas/Suggested Uses
- Solventless or high solids/low VOC maintenance and marine coatings

Safety Storage & Handling
Please refer to the MSDS for the most current Safety and Handling information.
Please refer to the Hexion web site for Shelf Life and recommended Storage information.
EPON 862 should be stored in tightly sealed containers of metal, glass, or polyolefin plastic at normal room temperatures. If EPON Resin 862 develops haziness or crystallizes during storage, it can be restored to its original condition by gently warming the container and its contents to approximately 170-190°F until all visual evidence of crystallization is gone. Upon cooling to normal ambient temperature conditions, the product will regain its original liquid state physical properties. This process can be repeated as necessary. Exposure to these materials should be minimized and avoided, if feasible, through the observance of proper precautions, use of appropriate engineering controls and proper personal protective clothing and equipment, and adherence to proper handling procedures. None of these materials should be used, stored, or transported until the handling precautions and recommendations as stated in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for these and all other products being used are understood by all persons who will work with them.
