Epoxy Hardeners & Additives

Resins for epoxy hardeners

GP Chemicals manufactures novolac resins for use as curing agents for epoxy resins in various applications. These products are useful as co-reactants or hardeners for epoxy resins to produce thermoset systems. The novolac resins used are non-heat reactive materials by themselves, but have phenolic-hydroxide groups that react with epoxies. This novolac/epoxy reaction produces a crosslinked polymer. Since the curing method does not produce by-products, thick sections may be obtained with low shrinkage and without voids and stresses.

We also manufacture pine-based tall oil fatty acid (TOFA) derivatives used to make epoxy additives. In raw form, they are used as precursors to synthesize new products. TOFA derivatives are numerous, including dimers, alkyd resin paints, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) stabilizers, synthetic lubricants, polyamides, and corrosion inhibitors. A variety of esters, amides and other fatty-type molecules can be manufactured using our various TOFA streams.
