Low viscosity aliphatic diepoxide compound based on 1,6-hexanediol. It is intended for use as a reactive diluent for high viscosity epoxy resins. It is compatible at all concentrations with those resins and resin/diluent blends can be cured using any epoxy resin curing agents. The difunctionality of RAD 986 helps to produce formulations with improved chemical and heat resistance compared to formulations containing monofunctional diluents. Formulations containing RAD 986 exhibits excellent wettability making them ideal candidates for composites and impregnation applications. RAD 986 has low moisture, low hydrolysable chlorine, and residual Epichlorohydrin contents. Its’ very low color makes RAD 986 the diluent of choice in color-critical applications.
