Deuteron ES 224 is a surface active additive. Its presence in a mixture of unsaturated polyester resin/reactive-solvent (styrene) helps in removing air-bubbles (for instance when mixing resin and curing agent). It improves wetting of the substrate in systems containing extenders.
Because of the above mentioned properties Deuteron ES 224 is an excellent wetting and air release agent in particular for laminating resins based on unsaturated polyester. The product is very suitable in laminating resins where excellent adhesion of polyester resin and glass fiber is required. The product is particularly suitable for thixotropic systems since it has no impact on the rheology (thixotropy).back
