Effective Savings in Production Times and Cost Through Monitoring of the Effect of Additives and Temperature on the Gel Times of Polyester Resin

SO Edelugo

Abstract


Using a simple experimental analysis, the effect of catalyst, accelerator, inhibitor and temperature on gel times of polyester resin is fully exposed. Particular use is made of a benzoyle-peroxide-amine system with hydro quinone as inhibitor. Results show that only by careful planning, using the in-depth knowledge of gel times, can there be a saving in production times and prevention of material wastes during lamination.
