AKPEROX A30 – Low Activity Catalyst

Description

Solution of Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide in DiMethyl Phthalate

Applications

AKPEROX A30 is a general purpose MEKP for curing unsaturated polyester (UP) resins at room and elevated temperature. Akperox A30 is a version of Akperox A50 and main application area is spray up, when certain dosage needed. Akperox A30 is also suitable for curing of gel coat resins and laminating resins. Especially in hot weather it is better to use diluted Akperox A30 for tubs and shower pans.

Usage & Amount

It is recommended to use 1% – 2% in general, depending on application. It needs to be used with Cobalt accelerators at room temperature. (E.g. AKCOBALT 1%)

AKPEROX AAP – Fast cure for use in closed mould process

Description

Acetyl Acetone Peroxide in Solvent Mixture

Applications

AKPEROX AAP is used for curing unsaturated polyester (UP) resins at room and high temperatures in existence of Cobalt Accelerator. AAP + Cobalt combination provides faster curing and higher peak temperature level in comparison with MEKP + Cobalt combination. Therefore, lamination applications for quite thin layers should be avoided in this respect.

Usage & Amount

It is recommended to use 0,5% – 2% in general. Should be used 0,5% – 3 when applied together with Cobalt or Amine accelerators.

Packaging

– 25 kgs PE Pail
