Applications & Uses+
Cycat VXK 6364 is a catalyst which is suitable to accelerate the cure of fully alkylated melamine formaldehyde resins. Post curing of films containing Cycat VXK 6364 can occur. Recommended levels of Cycat VXK 6364, calculated on melamine resin (solid), are 1 - 7 %.
Technical Details & Test Data+
Cycat VXK 6364 is usable in solvent and waterborne thermosetting vehicles.
Cycat VXK 6364 is especially suitable for the cure of melamine resins which are used as crosslinkers for polyesters. Recommended level for curing condition: 220 °C, < 50 s (approx. 30 s PMT) is 2.5 - 6.0 % Cycat VXK 6364, based on melamine resin solids.
Cycat VXK 6364 is only suitable for outside application (base- and clear coats). It is not in compliance with FDA 21 CFR175.300 and german recommendation BgVV No. XL.
For acrylic/melamine varnishes (ratio = 70 : 30 to 60 : 40), which are baked at 130 - 150 °C for 15 - 20 min, 3.0 - 4.0 % of catalyst solution based on total resin solid is required.
