FILCO® 621 is an unsaturated polyester resin formulated with ethoxylated BPA in powder form, primarily employed as a binder for Continuous Strand Mat (CSM). It exhibits a light yellow, free-flowing powder appearance. Key product characteristics include slower solubility in styrene compared to propoxylated binders, a strong binding capacity for glass fibers, excellent compatibility with unsaturated polyester matrices, and a glass transition temperature (Tg) of approximately 53°C.
