Applications

  1. Reduces viscosity of liquid epoxy Resin as well as solid epoxy.
  2. Gives flexibility and wetting to the substrate.
  3. Good adhesion to marginally prepared surfaces.
  4. Due to CNSL chemistry repels water.
  5. Good corrosion resistance in epoxy systems.
  6. High Levels of Mechanical Stability.

Stability and Storage

BG-2013  may absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide when left in open container, which could result in increased discoloration, reduction of reactivity, This products should be kept tightly sealed in original container when not in use, and store in a cold, dry place. Expiry of the products is 12-months from the date of manufacture.
