FILCO® 766 is a highly unsaturated polyester resin available in non-ionic water dispersion, specifically formulated as a film former in glass fiber sizings. Notably, FILCO® 766is free from DAP (Diallyl phthalate) and is deemed suitable for food contact applications. Its appearance resembles that of a milky liquid. Key product characteristics include high unsaturation, a non-ionic emulsifier integrated into the polymer, impressive hydrolysis and sedimentation stability, a narrow particle size distribution, and robust mechanical shear stability when the emulsion is diluted.

Functions: Film Former

Chemical Family: Polyesters, Unsaturated Polyester (UPE)
