Hexion has decades of experience providing waterborne epoxy resins to improve the processing and performance of traditional fiber applications. Our EPI-REZ™ epoxy resins are used as film formers to develop tailored, high-performance sizing formulations for glass, carbon, basalt and other reinforcing fibers, resulting in structural composites with optimal properties. EPI-REZ epoxy resins are also effective as adhesion promoters, particularly for PET and aramid fibers, to improve the performance of tires and mechanical rubber goods (e.g., hoses, serpentine belts and conveyer belts). In addition, EPI-REZ epoxy resins can be combined with appropriate curing agents to formulate water-based treatments and binder systems for textiles and nonwovens, bringing the high performance of cured epoxy systems to these fiber applications.
We offer waterborne epoxy products for the following fiber and textile applications with the following functions and benefits:
