EPON™ Resin 1004F

 

 

Product Description

EPON™ Resin 1004F is a solid epoxy resin derived from bisphenol-A and epichlorohydrin. This medium molecular weight epoxy resin has an average of 4.5-5.0 hydroxyl groups per molecule plus the terminal epoxy groups. These epoxy and hydroxyl groups are usually reacted with vegetable oil acids to prepare epoxy resin esters. Epoxy esters derived from EPON Resin 1004F find application as vehicles in appliance primers, automotive primers, and in maintenance coatings. EPON Resin 1004F may be used as a partial replacement for other EPON Resins in amine or polyamide cured epoxy air dry finishes and in phenolic and amino modified epoxy baking systems.

 

Benefits

  • EPON Resin 1004F contains a specific amount of esterification catalyst to control esterification reactions with vegetable oil acids.
  • EPON Resin 1004F is supplied in very large lots (greater than 100M pounds) with uniform properties.
  • EPON Resin 1004F provides special solution viscosity and reactivity properties when combined with other EPON Resins in air dry amine or polyamide cured epoxy coatings and in epoxy-phenolic or amino converted baking systems.

Formulation and Application Information

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

 

• For ambient cured epoxy resin-amine or polyamide cured coatings consult Technical Brochure SC:193, entitled “Formulating Amine-Cured Coatings with EPON Resins.”

 

• For phenolic and amino converted epoxy resin baking finishes consult Technical Brochure SC:218, entitled “EPON and EPONOL™ Resins Converted Baking Finishes Formulated with Phenolic and Amino Resins.”

 

FDA Status

Several paragraphs in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations permit and regulate the use of epoxy resins such as cured EPON Resin 1004F as indirect food additives in food contact applications. Examples are: 175.105, 175.300, 175.320, 176.170, 176.180, 176.1210, and 177.2280

 

Curing agents and modifying materials 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 by these sections and the general requirements of good manufacturing practices.
