ERISYS GE-10, epoxidized ortho cresol, is a low viscosity, aromatic, mono-epoxide. It is intended for use as a reactive diluent for high viscosity epoxy resins. GE-10 is compatible at all concentrations with those resins and resin/diluent blends can be cured using any epoxy resins curing agents. GE-10, due to its structure, is not as efficient in viscosity reduction as aliphatic diluents ERISYS GE-5, GE-6, GE-7 or GE-8. However, the performance properties of epoxy formulations diluted with GE-10 are modified less than those of systems containing the aliphatic monofunctional diluents. Depending on concentration, properties such as gel time, room temperature strength, and modulus of a GE-10 diluted formulation remain relatively unchanged compared to an undiluted mix. A decline in elevated temperature performance, as indicated by decreasing Tg with increasing GE-10 concentration, occurs.  A further feature of GE-10 is its ability to reduce the tendency of certain epoxy resins to crystallize, thereby producing formulations with improved homogeneity. ERISYS GE10' s low vapor pressure and exceptionally low residual epichlorohydrin level make it ideally suited for environmentally difficult applications such as floor coating and concrete repair.
