The brightness temperature of shock-compressed EC141 NF epoxy resin was measured by a pyrometric method in the pressure range of 19 ÷ 42 GPa. The experimental points are in good agreement within the error with the calculation performed in the work. From the results of experiments, it follows that the presumed phase-transition region is not apparent in the pressure –temperature plane. Particle velocity records at the epoxy–water interface suggest the absence of a chemical reaction in EC141 NF epoxy compound at a pressure of 22.5 GPa during the observation time.
