methacrylate monomer and oligomer resins for styrene replacement in composites and gelcoats transport application

LOW VOC SYSTEMS

The use of Sartomer's high performance reactive diluents enables to reduce styrene and MMA contents in composite and gelcoats systems:

 

 

  • Low volatility
  • High cutting power
  • Good reactivity
  • Good mechanical performance
