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 enables the production of (ultra) high solids and waterborne low viscosity polymers with good substrate wetting, UV and chemical resistance.

High-Performance Resins with Low VOC

Cardura E10P glycidyl ester allows acrylic polyol polymerization at higher temperatures that can be used to reduce molecular weight and thus polymer viscosity. In addition to this, the bulky structure of Cardura E10P glycidyl ester limits the intermolecular chain interactions which contributes to the viscosity reduction. The robust structure of Cardura E10P widens the processing window for APOs, maintaining a delicate equilibrium across essential application properties — from drying time to pot life and VOC levels — paving the way for cost-effective formulations.

When Cardura glycidyl ester is used as a reactive diluent for epoxy flooring coatings, its low viscosity, low volatility and resistance to crystallization provide unique performance.
