    Unsurpassed Epoxy Resin Application Expertise

    Hexion’s epoxy products play an integral and important role across a wide variety of applications from coatings and electrical laminates to composites and adhesives. With over 50 years of formulation expertise, we can also optimize our resin and curing agent formulations to fit your specific application requirements and take your process to the next level. 

     

  • Epoxy Resins, Curing Agents and Catalysts for Electrical Casting

    Since the 1950s, Hexion has been providing high-quality, reliable insulation materials for electrical appliances. Our in-depth application experience backs a portfolio of products with a wide range of attributes. Processing and performance benefits include: short cycle times, reduced shrinkage, low exothermicity during cure, excellent mechanical and electrical insulating properties, and high toughness.

     

    At the same time, we are committed to developing smarter system solutions to improve reliability and help electrical equipment manufacturers decrease expenditures on materials, processing, energy, scrap and so on. In fact, our advances in Industrial Pressure Gelation, which eliminates post-curing and is faster than similar, pre-heated mold processes, saved one customer about a hundred thousand Euros per year.

     

    Hexion offers epoxy casting systems for the following applications:

    • Energy Generators & Drives—For vacuum pressure impregnation (VPI); best-in-class viscosity stability
