Hexion Diluents and Modifiers

HELOXY Modifiers are epoxy functionalized alcohols, diols, polyols and acids. Hexion offers three classes of HELOXY Modifiers: polyfunctional flexibilizers, monofunctional glycidyl ethers and polyfunctional glycidyl ethers.

Heloxy Flexibilizers
Product NameDescription
Heloxy 71Improves impact strength and toughness as an epoxy flexibilizer. Provides resistance to thermal shock.
Heloxy 505Imparts flexibility, impact and thermal shock resistance. High peel strength for adhesives. Lower odor and lower volatility.
  
Monofunctional Glycidyl Ethers
Product NameDescription
Heloxy 8Superior diluent efficiency, with good elongation characteristics. Very good substrate and filler wetting. Lower odor.
Heloxy 61A commercial grade of butyl glycidyl ether. Widely used in the viscosity reducing modification.
Heloxy 62Efficient diluent with retention of tensile characteristics, and moisture/chemical resistance. Lower volatility.
Heloxy 65Moderate dilution efficiency with superior moisture and chemical resistance.
Heloxy 116A commercial grade of 2-ethylhexyl glycidyl ether. Widely used in the viscosity reducing modification.
  
Polyfunctional Glycidyl Ethers
Product NameDescription
Heloxy 48Trifunctionality increases crosslink density. Moderate dilution efficiency. Retention of HDT and tensile properties.
Heloxy 67Is primarily used as a reactive diluent or viscosity reducer for all classes of epoxy resins.
Heloxy 68Difunctional with very good viscosity reduction. Maintains most cured state properties and improves wetting.
Heloxy 107Is primarily used as a reactive diluent or viscosity reducer for all classes of epoxy resins. It can also serve as a reactive intermediate for further synthesis of various cycloaliphatic based resins.
