Drier and esterification catalyst in the synthesis of unsaturated polyester resins

  • Physical Characteristics

    AppearanceLight straw-colored liquid
    Metal contentLi: 1.90 – 2.10 %
    Non-volatile content50.00 – 60.00 % ASTM D 1644
    ViscosityA-5 to E ASTM D 2373
    Specific gravity1.010 – 1.040 (25°C) ASTM D 1963

  • Features

    • Lithium salt of neodecanoic acid in aqueous solution
    • Enables the resin manufacturer to produce resins of significantly lighter color while also allowing for better molecular weight control and improved product viscosities
    • Easy to handle and disperses readily
    • Recommended as a transesterification or alcoholysis catalyst for the production of alkyd and epoxy resins
    • Provides extra film toughness
    • Effective through drier for oxidatively cured resins
    • Must be used in addition to surface driers like Cobalt, Manganese and Borchi® OXY-Coat

  • Applications

    • Oxidatively cured resins, including:
      • Alkyds
      • Epoxy esters

  • Dosage

    The exact amount required should always be determined in preliminary trial.

  • Storage

    Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in original container. Store in accordance with local regulations. Keep at temperatures between 5 °C and 30 °C.
