EPON™ Epoxy Novolac Resins are specifically designed to provide increased levels of thermal stability and chemical resistance. This is accomplished by increasing the epoxy functionality as a result of switching from Bisphenol A to Novolac backbones. A variety of backbones is available with functionalities in excess of 2, up to 5. This allows the formulation of systems with the high cross-link densities needed for higher thermal (Tg) and chemical resistance properties.
See the "Technical Data Sheets" section for information on individual products.
EPON epoxy novolac resins are broadly utilized, either singly as the epoxy resin, or as modifiers in multi-resin systems. They find uses in high performance coatings and containment systems, in composites, in moulding and coating powders, in structural adhesives, and in electrical laminating and electronic applications.
See the "Applications & Formulations" section for Starting Formulations and additional information.
