ELASTOSIL® AUX BATCH PT 2
ELASTOSIL® AUX BATCH PT 2 is a catalyst paste for blending into the respective ELASTOSIL® R plus base compounds used for moulding applications.
ELASTOSIL® AUX BATCH PT 2 is suitable for the molding grades ELASTOSIL® R plus 40xx (e.g. 4000) and blended into the respective base on a clean and cooled open roller mill with low friction in a ratio of 1/100 to 2/100. The standard dosage is 1.5 parts calculated on 100 parts of base. Good homogenization is essential for a later good result in curing!
The pot life of the mixtures with incorporated PT2 catalyst paste is min. 3 days at room temperature and can be extended up to 7 days depending on storage conditions. For moulding material it is generally recommended to store the mixture for 1 hour after blending to support the transfer from physical to chemical dispersion of the catalyst.
CAUTION! Platinum catalysts are generally inhibited by heavy metals, sulphur, amines and other subsubstances causing desactivation of the catalyst! For this reason exposition or contact with these substances thus have to be strictly excluded during transport, storage and processing!
The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label.
Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
