INTUMAX® is a class of revolutionary flame retardants / intumescent agents that are ideal for incorporation into thermoset coatings and foams, potting compounds, fiberglass reinforced structures, electrical laminates, thermal plastics, paints, films, resins and many other applications.
When blended into your resin system, INTUMAX® will react to heat or flame to foam and form a thick, high yield char barrier. This char barrier will mitigate fire and prevent further flame spread. The char foam can also insulate and protect the coated substrate from heat damage.
EPOXY CURING AGENTS
Unsaturated Liquid Anhydrides
Unsaturated liquid anhydrides are the workhorses of epoxy filament winding, pultrusion, resin infusion, and electrical potting. Offering superior performance, low cost and low viscosity, unsaturated liquid anhydrides have excellent electrical properties as demonstrated in their use in the potting and encapsulation of ignition coils, high voltage transformers, printed circuit boards, etc. These anhydrides are unequaled in their cure versatility and overall value proposition for filament winding and resin infusion.
Saturated Liquid Anhydrides
When moisture resistance, UV stability and crisp, clean, color and color retention are needed, saturated liquid anhydrides are the answer. These anhydrides are used in L.E.D. displays, clear coats, and insulators for outdoor electrical transmission equipment.
R-296 or R-446
Resoflex products are resinous plasticizers that are suitable for plasticizing film forming materials. These resins are ideal for use as plasticizers for Polyvinyl Acetate. They are also compatible with nitrocellulose, cellulose acetate, nylon, certain grades ncof polyvinyl alcohol and other natural and synthetic film forming materials.
Chemically, these plasticizers completely saturated and thus possess remarkable stability and are not affected by heat, cold, ultra violet light oxygen, ozone, or other factors that contribute to the deterioration of organic materials. Compounds in which Resoflex R-296 or R-446 serve as the plasticizer exhibit the following properties:
Resoflex products are
- Excellent stability on long ageing under all conditions
- Essentially zero volatility
- No plasticizer migration
- Excellent resistance to oils, fats, grease and gasoline
- Good low temperature flexibility
- Good water resistance
- Excellent flexibility and toughness
- UV stable
- Color stable
- Not water soluble
