Crystic 2-446PA Unpigmented (Clear) General Purpose Laminating Polyester Resin (Lloyd's approved, Low styrene emmision)
Pre-accelerated, thixotropic viscosity polyester resin with low styrene emission. Its rapid wet-out, low exotherm and fast hardening characteristics make it ideal for spray applications which require a fast mould turn round. This reduction in styrene emission is achieved with no loss of intermalinar adhesion.
Approved by Det-Norske Veritas and Lloyd's Register of Shipping for use in construction of craft under their survey.
Crystic 2-446pa should be allowed to attain workshop temperatures (18°c - 20°c) before use. They need only the addition of a catalyst to start the curing reaction. A colour change mechanism is incorporated into crystic 2-446pa to indicate the presence of catalyst. After catalyst addition the resin will change from a blue-ish white to white before gelation. Catalyst should be added at 1% or 2% into the resin.
