Application Advice/Typical Applications

Depending on the process, the desired application weight can be adjusted, either by a change in the foam density, or by diluting the dispersion with water. The viscosity of compounds can be adjusted to the desired level using the normal acrylate thickeners which are well known in the industry (e.g. alkalised Plextol® T 70S10). The dispersion, or compounds based on it, can be frothed using a foaming machine and spread using a doctor roller or blade. If wished the application of dispersion or compound may be achieved with the use of a lick-roller, either in the foamed, or unfoamed state. The film is soft, extensible and slighty tacky at room temperature. Particularly noteworthy is its good lightfastness and resistance to weathering and ageing.

Plextol® T 74S20 is foamable and it has a good foam stability.

Shipping and Storage

Plextol® T 74S20 is normally delivered in road tankers. Shipment in drums and 1 ton containers is also possible for customers who are just taking small quantities. The storage temperature of the dispersion should not fall below + 5°C and not exceed + 40°C. In air-tight, unopened, original drums or containers, and provided the storage conditions are met, the dispersion is stable for 6 months after delivery. However a slight drying of the surface, or some cream formation cannot be ruled out. It is therefore advisable that the dispersion, or compounds made from it, should be stirred, or mixed before use. The contents of drums, or containers, should be used up as soon as possible after opening.
