Milled Carbon Fiber Dispersed Epoxy resin

This carbon fiber dispersion allows the carbon fiber to remain fully dispersed during curing operations of casting intricate parts. Cured parts have substantially improved mechanical properties over standard epoxy resins and 1/2 the weight of aluminum.

Dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate

N,N-Dimethylaminoethyl Methacrylate is a water-soluble, monofunctional acrylate monomer with a polar tertiary amine group that offers water solubility and excellent adhesion properties.

Phenolic resin microspheres

BellPearl® Series are non-toxic, high performance phenolic resins with perfectly spherical shape. They are part of KOWA’s Microsphere series which is characterized with high molecular weight and low cross-linking density. PROPERTIES S type: A hot melt, self curing type. Soluble in solvents. Used as binder resins for moldings. Also used as thermo-setting resin. R type: Does not […]

Poly(tetramethylene ether)glycol

PTMG (Poly(tetramethylene ether)glycol / PTMG) is a linear polyether glycol with hydroxyl groups on both ends. As a polyol, it reacts readily with isocyanates (i.e., MDI, TDI, etc.) to produce resins with excellent properties such as impact resistance, hydrolysis resistance, wear resistance, tear resistance, fungus resistance and low temperature flexibility. The Polyurethane applications are Polyurethane Elastomers, […]

Isobornyl acrylate

IBXA is a mono-functional reactive diluent that polymerizes when exposed to sources of free radicals. The bicyclic structure of IBXA produces polymers of increased Tg, while its mono-functionality minimizes cross-linking to provide coatings and inks with good hardness, resiliency, flexibility and impact resistance. IBXA is recommended for coatings requiring flexibility, hardness & thermal resistance, maintaining high […]

Stearyl acrylate

STA is non-crosslinkable, low-viscosity monofunctional monomer used as a reactive diluent for radiation and peroxide cure application. Applications include paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, textile treatment agent, lubricating oil, and internal plasticizer. BRC% is 85% ※BRC % stands for Bio renewable Carbon ratio. = (Bio sourced Carbon)*100 / (Bio soused carbon + Fossil Carbon)
