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.

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.”
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.
