Revacryl X 4340 is an aqueous emulsion of a self- crosslinking styrene-acrylic ester copolymer.

Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

Film properties Evaporation of the water above the minimum film-forming temperature leaves a clear, colourless film. In order to obtain complete crosslinkage, additional heat treatment is required. We recommend 5 min at 140 °C for a film on which physical or chemical tests are to be performed.  The crosslinked film is soft, only slightly extensible and slightly tacky at room temperature. It is insoluble in water and resistant to many acids and alkalis. It is virtually insoluble in organic solvents. Instruction for use - Revacryl X 4340 can be diluted with water to produce spraying and impregnating liquors of any desired concentration.- Revacryl X 4340 is compatible with melamine or urea-formaldehyde resins and can be employed as a plasticiser for these resins. - By mixing with other emulsions from the PLEXTOL or REVACRYL range, the film properties of Revacryl X 4340 can be influenced within wide limits and thus adapted to the desired application. Areas of application - Manufacture of edge bandings and surface laminates and pre impregnates for the furniture industry in combination with melamine- and urea-formaldehyde resins or starch.
