EPILOX P13-18G - 100% biobased

Portfolio Update

EPILOX P13-18G: 100% Bio-Based Reactive Diluent

In the ever-growing chemical industry and construction sector, the demand for sustainable, high-quality materials has consistently risen. A product meeting these requirements is Epilox® P 13-18G(TDS).

The raw materials used in the production of the monoglycidyl ether (bio-based epichlorohydrin and C12-C14 alcohol) are bio-based. Thus, all carbon atoms (bio carbon content) in the final molecule come from renewable resources, and the bio-based carbon fraction of this reactive diluent is 100%. Additionally, using bio-based raw materials in production also reduces the ecological footprint of the product. Epilox® P 13-18G displays the same performance and quality as its conventional counterpart, Epilox® P13-18(TDS).


Diverse Applications

Epilox® P 13-18G is not only environmentally friendly but also imparts a slightly flexibilizing property to the cured system when mixed with epoxy resins.

The reactive diluent can therefore be used versatilely in various applications in combination with Epilox® epoxy resins. Particularly in the areas of coatings and mortars for floors, these modified epoxy resins offer advantages over other systems. In addition, these resin-reactive diluent combinations can be universally used in many other applications where diluted epoxy resins are required.
