Application Advice/Typical Applications

PLEXTOL B 500 is preserved against bacterial and fungal attack. In the manufacture of finished products, the material has to be retreated, as usual, with suitable biocides to give enhanced preservation.

Film properties: Evaporation of the water above the minimum film-forming temperature leaves a transparent, cloudy film which is soft, extensible and slightly tacky at room temperature. - By mixing PLEXTOL B 500 with other emulsions from the PLEXTOL range, the film properties of the former can be influenced within wide limits and thus adapted to the intended application.

Shipping and Storage

PLEXTOL B 500 is supplied in road tankers or in non-returnable plastics drums secured by a lid with clamping ring or in non-returnable palletized bulk containers (net weight 1,100 kg). PLEXTOL B 500 has to be stored protected from frost and, as far as possible, below 40 °C. Storage at temperatures between + 5 and + 30 °C is recommendable. PLEXTOL B 500 contains a preservative to counter microbial attack during transportation. To protect it against germination during subsequent storage, absolutely stringent plant hygiene and, under certain circumstances, the addition of suitable preservatives will be necessary. Care must be taken to ensure that drums and storage containers are tightly closed. During processing, storage and transport of the product contact with metals unprotected against corrosion (likewise non-ferrous metals) has to be avoided. When stored correctly PLEXTOL B 500 has a storage life of 12 months from date of delivery.
