CVC resin resistant to high temperatures

CVC Thermoset Specialties has unveiled a new thermoset resin aimed at high-temperature electrical applications.

Epalloy 8370 A85 is an epoxy phenol novalac resin supplied in an 85 percent concentration in acetone. Its high temperature resistance addresses the shrinking of electrical devices, causing them to operate at higher performance levels.

Applications for the new resin include prepreg, filament winding, printed circuit boards and encapsulation. It is compatible with standard curing agents and most other resins and resin modifiers, according to the Moorestown, N.J., firm.
