Epoxy resins with built-in fire safety
AND FULL-OUT COMPATIBILITY WITH MODERN APPLICATIONS
From 5G phone circuits to composites for e-mobility, epoxy resins are used for some of the most cutting-edge applications. The liquid non-halogenated flame retardants from our Exolit® EP line match this with a new level of compatibility and safety.
Low viscosity – high phosphorus content and sustainability
Exolit® EP 360 and EP 390 are phosphorus flame retardants incorporated into low-viscosity epoxy resin. This gives them broad compatibility with these types of thermosets, to which EP 360 also brings mechanics-enhancing epoxy functionality.
Due to their low viscosity, the solutions are ideal for modern solvent-free processing techniques, and their particle-free nature makes them attractive for thin E&E applications. They combine high efficiency with favorable environmental and health properties like low fire smoke toxicity, predestining them for use in transportation composites and other high-standard applications.

KEY BENEFITS OF OUR SPECIAL EP LINE
Ideal solution for all common solvent-free processes like infusion, liquid compression and resin transfer molding
Relatively low dosage needed to meet the required flame retardant performance of materials and products
High glass transition temperatures in epoxy composites possible, enhancing their suitability for high-temperature applications
Are Exolit® EP 360 and 390 a sure-fire solution for epoxies?
CHRISTIAN BATTENBERG HAS THE ANSWER
»With their low viscosity and high phosphorus content, our products considerably facilitate giving reliable fire safety to epoxy resins. No more pesky sediments, excellent curing performance – and even a reactive option that enhances the material.«
