EPALLOY 8230 is a very low viscosity epoxidized Bisphenol F resin which combines low hydrolyzable chlorides with a high degree of reactivity and outstanding chemical resistance. It is non-crystallizing and compatible with all standard curatives and most resin systems and solvents. EPALLOY 8230 is excellent for use in 100% solids coatings and trowelable flooring formulations where room temperature cure is required. Those formulations will provide chemical resistance to concentrated acids and aggressive solvents. Its exceptionally low hydrolyzable chloride content makes 8230 the preferred material for electronic applications, such as, encapsulation and laminating. Blends of EPALLOY 8230 with standard Bisphenol A based epoxy resins resist crystallization and will exhibit superior properties compared to conventionally diluted resins.
