EPICLON HP-6000 Super High Heat-Resistance/ Excellent flame-retardancy Epoxy Resin

Ultrahigh-performance epoxy resin that achieves excellent heat resistance, flame retardancy and low viscosity at the same time in a sophisticated manner

Features

  • High heat-resistance
  • Excellent flame-retardancy
  • Low CTE
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Low Df
  • Good solubility
  • Low melt viscosity

Applications

  • Green Print Circuit Board (halogen-free)
  • Green IC Package (halogen-free)
  • Build Up Substrate
  • Insulation Film
  • In-vehicle Applications

Resin Physical Properties

  • Since the resin has excellent liquidity, it has superior impregnating and casting ability (low melt viscosity)
  • Since the resin has excellent softening/adhesive resistance, it has high workability (high softening point)
  • High solubility for general-purpose solvent
