EP3F09.01 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. EP3F09.01 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.
