Cobalt carboxylates, such as cobalt octoate, are subject to ECHA reclassification and may become a SVHC in due course. To help make the transition to cobalt-free curing, we offer a cobalt-free accelerator portfolio available under Nouryact® and Accelerator™ brands. For more product details, feel free to check out our featured products below.
This portfolio is suitable for use in combination with organic peroxides for room and elevated temperature curing of all standard available unsaturated polyester (UP) and vinylester (VE) resins, and also the styrene free and acrylic modified hybrid resins. Nouryact® cobalt-free accelerators are ready for use in a standard cure system as replacement for the cobalt accelerator you are presently using. Our cobalt-free accelerators enable the manufacturing of composite materials made from natural fibers, such as flax. As a result, the use of our accelerators can drive sustainable growth and increase bio-based content in the composite end products. In addition, our portfolio adds values to manufacturing food contact compliant composites, such as kitchen countertops and food storage silos. For more information, check out this article.
In case you need more freedom to formulate your resins to a cobalt-free resin, there is the option to use the underlying technology for making cobalt-free resins, which we offer under the brandname BluCure®.
