Powder Coatings Clinic: Time-temperature-particle size cure window in powder coatings
It is well known that the reactions of epichlorohydrin (ECH) with hydroxyl, carboxyl, and amino functional groups will form epoxide functionalities, which, in comparison to other epoxy derivatives, are capable of withstanding higher shear stresses while exhibiting weaker peel strength. One approach to overcoming the issue of weak peel strength is to modify the epoxide phenolic novolac resins in order to reduce shrinkage during cure as well as to improve chemical resistance, film strength, and adhesion.
