Solution Case Study
Achieve heat resistance up to 300°C
In demanding applications such as Transportation, Electronics, Electrical insulation or General Industry it is crucial that the end-use product resists to high and very high temperatures without sacrificing other properties such as processing or water resistance for instance, first to ensure a trust relationship experience with customers and second for developers to produce thermosets with properties that will remain unchanged overtime.
Huntsman Advanced Materials has a very broad portfolio of specialty multifunctional epoxy resins. The strong partnership relations created with its customers allows them to propose customized solutions. Formulators are guaranteed that their needs are met according to the application and the performance that they have to reach.
Very high heat resistance up to 300°C or High heat resistance combined with high water resistance
Huntsman Advanced Materials proposes epoxy resins exhibiting the highest Tg or the highest water resistance among commercial epoxy resins
The graphs below show comparisons of Huntsman Advanced Materials Tactix® epoxy resins and Araldite® Epoxy Novolacs, with reference to bisphenol A based epoxy resin (DGEBA), with the following test conditions:
High heat resistance up to 250°C and easy processing
Huntsman Advanced Materials proposes epoxy resins with low viscosity that enables easy handling and processing combined with high thermal resistance of the cured products.
