REVERSOL P-9555

Reversol P-9555 is a filled beige opaque fire retardant unsaturated orthophthalic polyester resin for use in contact moulding. It has been specially designed to meet the increasing demand for an inexpensive filled resin system with fire retardant properties. Fully cured Reversol P-9555 reinforced with glass fibre can obtain a class 2 surface spread of flame rating when tested to BS-476 Part 7, 1997. Compared to unfilled resin, it is necessary to use a slightly higher Reversol P-9555 resin to glass ratio during FRP lamination. A resin to glass ratio by weight of 2.8 – 3.0 : 1.0 is recommended. Reversol P-9555 is non-promoted and addition of catalyst (MEKP) at 1-2% is recommended for tropical condition along with 0.1 – 0.13% of Cobalt (12%) promoter when used for cold cure application. BPO (Lucidol CH-50) is recommended for hot cure at 2 % pbw to resin. The BPO catalysed resin mixture will be stable at workshop temperature (27- 31ºC) for approximately 1 day. Curing should take place at 100-140ºC, but for most applications, 120ºC will be satisfactory. To achieve the optimum mechanical, weathering and fire retardant properties, it is recommended to post-cure Reversol -P9555 laminates at 50ºC for 15 hours or allow minimum 7 days of ageing at tropical condition of 28-33ºC, before putting laminates into service. Laminates made with Reversol P-9555, like those made from other filled fire retardant resin system, should be protected by a resin rich surface or a suitable gelcoat if they are to be used outdoors. Always stir resin before use as sedimentation occurs during standing.

Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

(# Curing schedule was 12 hrs at 28-32ºC + 3 hrs at 50ºC + 3 hrs at 80ºC. Curing catalyst system used is 100 g resin + 4 ml Cobalt oct. (0.4%) + 2 ml MEKP )

Shipping and Storage

To ensure maximum stability and maintain optimum resin properties, Reversol P-9555 should be stored in closed containers below 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-9555 will remain stable for 3 months from date of delivery.
