Cardura™  E10P Glycidyl Ester

 

 

Description

CarduraTM E10P glycidyl ester of VersaticTM Acid 10, a synthetic saturated monocarboxylic acid of highly branched C10 isomers. Its structure may be represented as:

 

 

 

 

R1 and R2  are alkyl groups. Cardura E10P glycidyl ester is a liquid product with a low viscosity, and a mild odour.

 

 

Applications

Cardura E10P glycidyl ester is used as an intermediate for the manufacture of resins and polymers and for different chemical syntheses via reactions with its epoxide group. Its unique reaction characteristics and properties make Cardura E10P glycidyl ester attractive for a wide variety of paint applications, particularly those based on polyesters, acrylics and epoxy resins.

 

Cardura E10P glycidyl ester is also used as a reactive diluent for epoxy resins based on bisphenol A, bisphenol F or blends of these two. Typical applications for Cardura E10P glycidyl ester diluted resins are solvent-free coatings curing at ambient temperature and compositions for the civil engineering industry, including floorings and concrete repair compounds. Cardura E10P glycidyl ester has good wetting characteristics and offers better crystallization resistance and improved chemical resistance in the diluted resin compared to many other diluents.
