FT-140 is an unwaxed orthophthalic general purpose polyester laminating resin which exhibits a moderate exotherm temperature and cure to allow for thicker laminate applications.
An unwaxed resin is generally referred to as a laminating resin. When fully cured, the surface will remain slightly tacky. This type of material is generally used in multiple lamination’s such as laying up a mold.
Requires M.E.K.P catalyst for curing
The table below contains the catalyst chart when using MEKP to catalyze Polyester Resins & Gelcoats. The MEKP Catalyst must be used or the resin or gelcoat will not cure.
|10 ml per litre or 10 drops per oz.||30 min.||2 hr.||4 hr.||—|
|15 ml per litre or 15 drops per oz.||—||30 min.||2 hr.||4 hr.|
|20 ml per litre or 20 drops per oz.||—||—||40 min.||2 hr.|
NOTE: Working time is approximately 25% of above cure times. Avoid working in extreme temperature or direct sunlight.
WARNING: MEKP Catalyst is a hazardous substance. Use with extreme caution. Contact with eyes may cause blindness. In case of contact, flush with water, consult physician immediately. Vapour is harmful, use adequate ventilation during application.
