Duresta™ 10GP


Duresta 10GP acid scavenger is the glycidyl ester of a highly branched monocarboxylic acid with an excellent reactivity towards carboxylic acids:

 Chemical reaction - esterification Duresta


Duresta 10GP glycidyl ester is used as an acid scavenger to reduce the acid value of esters, polyesters resins and polymers. It is usually dosed to these products at the end of their chemical synthesis when they are still at elevated temperature. The unique reaction characteristics and properties make Duresta 10GP glycidyl ester attractive for a wide variety of applications, particularly those requiring very low acid values such as synthetic lubricants, high performance polyesters and specialty ester based polymers. Typically, the derived products have an improved hydrolytic stability due to their extremely low acid value.


Usually, 4.3 to 30 mg/g Duresta 10GP glycidyl ester is used per mg/g KOH of acid value reduction desired. Excess product may be removed by vacuum distillation1
