Diglycidyl hexanediol, difunctional glycidyl ether of hexyl alcohol; containing 2 epoxide groups (three-membered ring cyclic ethers that are also known as oxiranes or alkylene oxides). It is used as a general purpose diluent to reduce viscosity of epoxy resins, favoring improved filler loading and substrate wetting and resulting in faster curing time. End applications include coating, adhesive, casting, laminating, encapsulation or foam. It is also used as a stabilizer for chlorinated vinyl resins and rubber. It is used as a chemical intermediate to make other compounds.
