CYCAT® XK 406 N
Knowde Enhanced TDS
Identification & Functionality+
Features & Benefits+
CYCAT XK 406 N differs from Additol XK 406 only in that it does not contain white spirit as solvent.
Applications & Uses+
CYCAT XK 406 N is a phosphoric acid derivate. CYCAT XK 406 N increases the crosslinking speed of heat curing coating systems based on e.g. phenolic/‐epoxide resin combinations. A significant improvement of adhesion properties is often seen in connection with the use of CYCAT XK 406 N.
Furthermore, the use of CYCAT XK 406 N often leads to an improved sulphur staining resistance of interior can coating systems based on phenolic/epoxide resin combinations.
CYCAT 406 N is compatible with high molecular weight epoxide resins and most resoles used in such combinations. The Phenodur grades PR 285 and PR 373 are not compatible with CYCAT XK 406 N.
Regulatory & Compliance+
The importation, processing or use of this product in the United States of America is subject to a Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA). Among other conditions, the SNUR prohibits the predictable or purposeful release of the product to waters of the U.S. from manufacturing, processing or uses and imposes certain notice and recordkeeping requirements. Please see 40 CFR 721.5905 [or 40 CFR 721.5908 as applicable] for further information. This product may also be subject to export notification under TSCA Sec. 12(b).
Technical Details & Test Data+
For combinations of phenolic‐ and high molecular weight epoxide resins we recommend to add 2 ‐ 5 % (calculated on solid resin). Since phenolic resins are often combined with other coating raw materials, one should always find out the optimal content of CYCATl XK 406 N by trials. Overdosage of CYCAT XK 406 N has a negative influence onto the storage stability of the lacquers containing it.

Storage & Handling+
At temperatures up to 25 °C storage stability packed in original containers amounts to at least 730 days.
