Epoxy Reactive Diluents

Huntsman offers epoxy formulators a complete line of high-purity, low-viscosity aliphatic or aromatic epoxy reactive diluents for applications such as electronics, protective coatings, metal coatings, adhesives, composites and marine.

Our Araldite® epoxy reactive diluents include mono-, di-, or tri-functional glycidyl ethers which can be used to reduce viscosity and improve handling/processing without causing significant changes in physical properties.
