Product Description

CUROX M-303 a colourless, mobile liquid, consisting of peroxides based on methylethylketone,
essentially desensitised with phtalate plasticiser. This ketone peroxide is used
as an initiator (radical source) in the curing of unsaturated polyester resins.
Main application: Hand lay-up, spray-up, continuous laminating, centrifugal
casting, filament winding and polyester concrete.

POLYESTER CURING: Curing agent for all UP resin types at ambient temperature
in combination with cobalt accelerators. Standard dosage level: 1-3% as
supplied, with 0.5-2% of a 1% cobalt solution.
“Pot life” (gel time of resin + peroxide + accelerator) relatively short compared to
standard MEKP’s, but may be prolonged by adding Inhibitor TC-510.
CURING PERFORMANCE: Moderate evolution of heat. Relatively short mould
release time. Higher reactivity in the MEKP-product range.Temperatures below
20°C prolong curing times considerably, alternatively cobalt / amine accelerators
should then be used.
PROCESSING METHODS: Particularly hand lay-up, spray lay-up, centrifugal
casting, filament winding, casting of resins, limited for gelcoats.
Technical Data Sheet
SPRAY EQUIPMENT: Use spray equipment in accordance with manufacturer’s
instructions. Ensure all safety devices are operational. Do not clear gun by
spraying MEKP into the air.
