Worldwide Leader in Epoxies
Hexion is the leading epoxy resin supplier for end-use applications requiring superior overall performance such as resistance to chemicals and corrosion. We provide a diverse line of epoxy resins, curing agents and systems with global availability.
Hexion’s broad range of epoxy systems includes high solids, waterborne and solvent-borne products. Our family of EPON™ resins, HELOXY™ modifiers and EPIKURE™ curing agents has balanced top-line performance with superior processability for more than sixty years. Our EPI-REZ™ waterborne resin systems can be used for epoxy applications such as flooring or anti-corrosive primers to significantly reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC) without sacrificing performance. Hexion continues to develop waterborne systems that reduce the cost/performance gap with solventborne technology.
