    Brasnox DM-50 # VRN is a general purpose methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP) for the curing of unsaturated polyester resins in the presence of a cobalt accelerator at room and elevated temperatures. The curing system Brasnox DM 50/cobalt accelerator is particularly suitable for the curing of gelcoat resins, laminating resins, lacquers and castings; moreover the manufacture of light resistant parts may be possible contrary to the curing system benzoyl peroxide/amine accelerator. Brasnox DM-50 # VRN includes a vanishing red indicator system that virtually disappears during cure. The red color is there when you need it i.e. during the mixing step, but will disappear during cure.
