Crystallization in Epoxies: How to Identify and Reverse it
Crystallization in epoxies is a common occurrence –and easy to remedy. If your production facility discovers a container of epoxy that appears cloudy or is nearly solid, there’s no need for concern. In fact, in this technical paper, we hope to dispel the perception that crystallized epoxy is not usable or that its material properties are compromised. In fact, crystallization indicates purity of product. The epoxies supplied by Fiber Optic Center are made with very pure resins, which can be more susceptible to crystallization.
