Duresta™ 10GP

Duresta™ 10 GP

Duresta™ 10 GP is the glycidyl ester of Versatic™ acid 10.

Duresta glycidyl ester is the ideal acid scavenger for various types of carboxylic acids. The unique chemical structure of Duresta glycidyl ester is responsible for its very high reactivity towards acids. Duresta glycidyl ester is therefore widely used to reduce the acid value of polyesters easily and quickly to very low levels.
