Deuteron® ND 960 HF comprises a blend of fatty acid amide and N-heterocycle derivatives dissolved within aromatic hydrocarbons. This formulation acts as a surface-active additive, notably recognized for its potent viscosity-reducing capabilities. It manifests as a clear yellow liquid and finds optimal application within highly filled, unsaturated polyester systems, especially in conjunction with fillers.

Product Highlights
  • Deuteron® ND 960 HF is a combination of fatty acid amide and N-heterocycle derivative dissolved in aromatic hydrocarbons. It is a surface-active additive with a strong viscosity reducing effect.
  • Even in small quantities it increases the wetting capacity of unsaturated polyester systems and thus improves the dispersing properties.

Application and Dosage Information

Deuteron® ND 960 HF is particularly suitable for highly filled unsaturated polyester systems such as fillers.

It improves in particular:

  • Wetting and dispersing properties (viscosity reduction)
  • Substrate wetting

Dosage

  • The addition level of Deuteron® ND 960 HF depends on the wetting properties of the binder and on the surface area of the pigments. Relative to the pigment content 0.1 – 0.5 % are a good starting point for formulation trials.

Processing

  • Deuteron® ND 960 HF is added to the resin component before grinding. Simple premixing is sufficient. If the additive is to be added after grinding or immediately before processing (before addition of peroxides), thorough mechanical mixing is recommended.
