Cardura™ E10P Glycidyl Ester

Cardura™ Glycidyl Ester

Cardura™ E10P glycidyl ester, the glycidyl ester of Versatic™ acid 10, has been used for decades as a building block for high-performance resins for automotive, industrial and construction applications. Cardura E10P glycidyl ester enables the production of (ultra) high solids and waterborne low viscosity polymers with good substrate wetting, UV and chemical resistance.

Cardura E10P Chemical Structure

R1 + R2 = 7 carbon atoms

Reactive group (highlighted in yellow)

  • Reactive epoxy-ester group
  • Highly reactive towards amines, acids and alcohols
  • Ring opening generates a hydroxyl group for crosslinking

Bulky group (highlighted in blue)

  • Sterically protected ester group
  • Bulky structure
  • Reduces inter molecular interaction between polymer chains
  • Aliphatic structure
  • Hydrophobic
