EPALLOY 5000 is the diepoxide of the cycloapliphatic alcohol, hydrogenated Bisphenol A.  Due to its saturated ring structure, this resin is expected to find utility in applications requiring resistance to ultraviolet light exposure.  Formulations based on standard DGEBA resins usually do not perform well in this environment.  Curing agent selection, to achieve optimum weathering resistance with EPALLOY 5000, should be done with great care.  Products with improved chalking resistance and gloss retention can be formulated. 

EPALLOY 5000 exhibits a significantly lower viscosity than DGEBA.  Higher filler loadings can, therefore, be achieved, resulting in cost reduction and reduced shrinkage.  The adhesion and chemical resistance characteristic of EPALLOY 5000 formulations are expected to be similar to those of standard DGEBA systems.
