FINECURE ZN10
(Zinc Naphthenate Complex)
PRODUCT

FINECURE ZN10 is a zinc naphthenate complex for anhydride cured epoxy systems.

APPLICATION

FINECURE ZN10 is a catalyst for curing of epoxy resin system. It is suitable for
manufacture of epoxy pre-pregs, particularly mica tapes and mica composites for high
temperature applications in electrical apparatus. This is also suitable for making high
temperature resistant composites for structural applications. Pre-pregs made out of the above
system have shelf life of at least 6 months at 25oC.

This is also used as a latent catalyst in VPI (Vacuum Pressure Impregnation) systems. Finecure
ZN10 based systems can have pot life of over 2 years when stored at temperatures of less
than 10oC.

SPECIAL FEATURES

The following advantages make it ideal for industrial use.

Very long prepreg life.


Tolerant mixing ratio ( 5 %).
High temperature resistance.

Cured Products have :

Excellent resistance to boiling water.


Very low water absorption.
Very Good chemical resistance and electrical insulation.
