ERISYS® GE-24

ERISYS® GE-24

A flexibilizer, ERISYS GE-24 is the diepoxide of an aliphatic polyglycol. Its low viscosity, relatively high equivalent weight and aliphatic structure suggest use as a diluent and/or flexibilizer in high viscosity, brittle epoxy formulations. As a diluent, GE-24 lowers viscosity for improved substrate wetting and/or higher filler loading. As a flexibilizer, ERISYS GE-24 improves elongation, peel strength, resistance to thermal cycling and impact. Depending on the concentration of GE-24, your formulation may experience some decrease in chemical and heat resistance.
