CYCAT® 4045 Catalyst

CYCAT® 4045 Catalyst is an amine blocked para-toluene sulfonic acid catalyst. It is recommended for accelerating the cure response of amino crosslinking resins while providing improved formulation package stability compared with the un-blocked para-toluene sulfonic acid CYCAT 4040 catalyst. It is especially recommended for use with highly alkylated amino crosslinking resins. This product provides excellent stability in high solids and waterborne systems, and in the latter it can be added without causing binder precipitation, which can often occur due to a drop in pH.

Applications & Uses

+
Recommended Levels

CYCAT 4045 catalyst contains 20 % active acid and has an equivalent acid number of 60 - 70. Therefore, it is 50 % less active than the un-blocked CYCAT 4040 catalyst. Therefore, in comparison with CYCAT 4040 catalyst it is recommended that twice the level of CYCAT 4045 catalyst be used to provide approximately the same cure response.

In systems containing highly alkylated amino crosslinking resins such as CYMEL 303 LF resin in combination with hydroxyl or carboxy functional acrylic or polyester resins, the following starting point levels of CYCAT 4045 catalyst are recommended:
 

Polymer type Cure Temp °C Catalyst level (1)
R-OH > 150 1.0
R-OH 125 - 150 2.0
R-OH 110 - 125 4.0
R-COOH 150 - 175 1.0
R-COOH 125 - 150 2.0

Technical Details & Test Data

Solubility

CYCAT 4045 catalyst is soluble in oxygenated solvents such as alcohols, glycols, glycol ethers and water. It has limited solubility in ketones, esters and hydrocarbon solvents.

Catalyst Addition

In order to prevent recrystallization of the acid, a sufficiently high level of alcohol should be present in the total solvent system of the formulation. Recrystallized acid can cause a reduction in cure response and may create local areas of high aciditiy that could cause the formation of gel structures. Therefore, it is suggested that CYCAT 4045 catalyst be diluted approximately 1 : 1 with an alcohol before adding to the final formulation.

Storage & Handling

+
Storage and Handling

At temperatures from 5 °C to 30 °C storage stability packed in original containers amounts to at least 730 days.
