EPON™ Resin 1001F

 

 

Product Description

EPON™ Resin 1001F is a low molecular weight solid epoxy resin derived from a liquid epoxy resin and bisphenol-A. EPON Resin 1001F is used for its application or end-use advantages in both structural and surface-coating applications as follows:

 

Structural applications

Because of the excellent pre-impregnation properties, EPON Resin 1001F is used in:

• Dry lay-up laminates

• Dry filament winding

• Transfer molding compounds

 

Surface coatings

Amine or polyamide cured coatings based on EPON Resin 1001F provide excellent:

• Chemical resistance

• Durability

• Toughness

• Adhesion

 

Because of these performance properties, amine and polyamide cured coatings are especially

useful in maintenance and marine applications.

 

Thermosetting acrylic — EPON Resin systems

EPON Resin 1001F is used to upgrade thermosetting acrylic resins into coatings with greatly

improved:

• Adhesion

• Toughness

• Detergent resistance

 

Because of these specific properties, these systems are used extensively for automotive

and appliance primers.

 

Since solutions of this versatile epoxy resin are the preferred products for most of the aforementioned applications, Momentive Specialty Chemicals provides solutions of EPON Resin 1001F in several solvents to assist customers in handling this product. Contact your Momentive Sales Representative or Sales Office for assistance.

Formulation and Application Information

For epoxy resin amine-cured coatings consult Technical Bulletin, “FormulatingAmine-Cured Coatings with EPON Resin”.

 

For adhesives laminating casting and molding applications consult Technical Bulletin,entitled, “EPON Resin Structural Reference Manual”.

 

FDA Status

For manufacture of epoxy resin esters, consult Technical Bulletin, SC:197, entitled, “EPON Resin Esters”.

 

Several paragraphs in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations permit and regulate the use of epoxy resins such as cured EPON Resin 1001F as indirect food additives in food contact applications. Examples are: 175.105, 175.300, 175.320, 176.170, 176.180, 177.1210 177.2280.

 

Curing agents for EPON Resin systems are also regulated under several sections of Title 21, for example 175.300 and 177.2280, and are subject to the limitations imposed for these sections and the general requirements of good manufacturing practices.
