EP0409.01.50 is a hybrid molecule with an inorganic silsesquioxane at the core and organic glycidyl groups attached at the corners of the cage. This formulation contains PGMEA for coating applications. EP0409.01.50 serves as a high temperature reactive diluent in both aromatic and aliphatic epoxy resin and will increase rubbery plateau modulus. POSS® molecules also have robust resistance to environmental degradation such as moisture, oxidation, corrosion and UV radiation. EP3F09.01 is also excellent at dispersing silica particles.
Note: Hybrid offers custom concentrates of EP0409 in solvents (such as PGMEA) or reactive monomers/resins. Please contact us with custom requests.
