General Purpose Polyester Resin Crystic 2-8500PA is an orthophthalic polyester resin with low styrene emissions which quickly saturates reinforcements. Tailored for non-critical and industrial uses, this resin is unsuitable for boat building, applications requiring chemical resistance, or for items in contact with food.
For optimal performance, General Purpose Polyester Resin Crystic 2-8500PA resin should be brought to room temperature (18°C - 20°C). Mix it thoroughly, either manually or using a low shear mixer to prevent air entrapment, and then let it sit briefly to restore its thixotropic properties.
We recommend using Catalyst M (alternatively Butanox M50) as the catalyst, added at a 1% ratio to the resin. Ensure complete blending of the catalyst into the resin, preferably using a low shear mechanical stirrer.
