HELOXY 116 Modifier is a commercial grade of 2-ethylhexyl glycidyl ether. A low viscosity, almost colorless monoepoxide, its primary use is the viscosity reducing modification of epoxy resin formulations. Benefits include:

  • Efficient viscosity reduction of conventional epoxy resins
  • Excellent substrate and filler wetting characteristics
  • Low volatility relative to other members of monoepoxide class

HELOXY™ Modifier 61 is a commercial grade butyl glycidyl ether. A low viscosity, virtually colorless monoepoxide, it is widely used in the viscosity reducing modification of epoxy resin formulations. The relatively low molecular weight of HELOXY 61 makes it the most efficient common monoepoxide in reducing the viscosity of basic epoxy resin formulations. However, due to its excellent viscosity reduction characteristics, relatively low levels of HELOXY 61 are normally needed to attain desired viscosity reductions and these compromises in performance properties are held to a minimum. Benefits include:

  • Most efficient epoxy resin viscosity reduction of all common epoxy functional modifiers
  • Outstanding substrate and filler wetting characteristics
  • Excellent retention of physical strength and thermal properties of base formulations
