Identification & Functionality+
Features & Benefits+
EPON Resin 8111 is a highly reactive multifunctional resin containing both epoxide groups and reactive unsaturation. Unlike conventional epoxy resins, polymerization can occur under certain conditions. The temperature of EPON Resin 8111 should not exceed 50 °C during storage, mixing or grinding operations.
The use of typical epoxy diluents or alkaline fillers with EPON Resin 8111 may also result in polymerization. Therefore, it is important that any modifier be carefully screened prior to commercial use with EPON Resin 8111.
For applications requiring further viscosity reductions and/or flexibility, the addition of EPON Resin 8021 is suggested. EPON Resin 828 is also compatible with EPON Resin 8111.
The viscosity of EPON Resin 8111 is lower than that of unmodified bisphenol A liquid resins. (Because of its low viscosity, reactive diluents are not necessary for most applications

Storage & Handling+
EPON Resin 8111 should be stored in tightly sealed glass, stainless steel or phenolic line containers at normal room temperatures. Storage in unlined steel containers should be avoided. Care should be taken to avoid storage of this resin above 50 °C.
Prolonged storage of EPON Resin 8111 at temperatures below -10 °C can result in resin crystallization. Should this occur, gentle warming to normal ambient temperatures will restore this resin to its original homogeneous state.
Exposure to these materials should be minimized and avoided, if feasible, through the observance of proper precautions, use of appropriate engineering controls and proper personal protective clothing and equipment, and adherence to proper handling procedures. None of these materials should be used, stored, or transported until the handling precautions and recommendations as stated in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for these and all other products being used are understood by all persons who will work with them
