    Cadox L-50a VR is a special purpose catalyst for the room temperature cure of promoted unsaturated polyester resins. CADOX L-50a VR has a low hydrogen peroxide content which provides improved curing of vinyl ester resins. Cadox L-50a VR also has a high MEKP dimer content which may provide reduced cure times in some resin systems.  Cadox L-50a VR offers all the advantages of a red MEKP, except red parts. The VR series of products includes a red indicator system that virtually disappears during cure. The red is there when you need it, but not in the finished product.
