CYMEL® 1170 resin

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by allnex
CYMEL® 1170 resin by allnex is a highly butylated glycoluril, crosslinker. It is designed for use in both water and organo-soluble coating systems. Its superior adhesion relative to existing melamine and benzoguanamine crosslinkers provides increased corrosion resistance and flexibility. The better adhesion is not lost after post-forming of parts and exposure of the stressed coating to humidity, steam, dry heat, or weather. This feature makes this product a good candidate for coil of metal decoration enamels and primers. In addition, it releases significantly lower amounts of formaldehyde during the baking process compared to other amino resins. It shows very good compatibility with alkyd-, acrylic-, epoxy- and polyester resins. CYMEL® 1170 resin is recommended for appliance- & automotive primers and high solids coatings. The shelf life of this additive is 1440 days.
