Reversol P-960 P is a thixotropic, Iso-NPG, promoted unsaturated polyester gelcoat with excellent durability and water resistance, specially developed for use in tropical climate. It is designed for use in sanitary ware and for chemical plant process fabrication, but is equally suitable for other mouldings where good resistance to water and chemicals is important. It contains UV-absorber for resistant enhancement against ultra-violet / sunlight degradation. Reversol P-960 P is supplied as a non-pigmented solution in styrene monomer and formulated to be applied by brush. (For spray application, Reversol P- 980 should be used).

Application Advice/Typical Applications

(# Curing schedule was 12 hrs at 25ºC followed by 12 hr at 50oC and 3 hrs at 80ºC except for Deflection Temperature where schedule was 12 hrs 25ºC followed by 12hr at 50ºC, 3 hrs 80ºC and 3hrs at 120ºC) Reversol P-960P may be pigmented by the addition of 10% pigment pastes.

Coating for FRP products where excellent durability, water resistance and ultra-violet/ sunlight degradation resistant is desired. Application method : Brush Recommended catalyst level : 1.5 – 2.0 % pbw Recommended film thickness (wet) : 0.80 – 1.20 mm (0.030-0.047 inches) Moulding making : 0.50 – 1.00 mm (0.20 -0.40 inches) FRP parts : As a guide 600-1000 g/m2 wet gelcoat should furnish the above gelcoat thickness for FRP parts

Shipping and Storage

To ensure maximum stability and to maintain optimum resin properties, Reversol P-960 P should be stored in close containers below 32ºC and away from heat sources and sunlight. All storage should conform to local fire and building codes. Drums should be stored away from all sources of flame or combustion. Inventory should be maintained at minimum reasonable stock and used on a first-in-first-out basis. When properly stored, Reversol P-960 P will remain stable for 3 months from date of delivery.
