Inhibitor NLC-10 is an inhibitor used at ambient temperatures.
4-tert-Butyl-1,2-dihydroxy benzene, 10% in aliphatic ester
Inhibitor NLC-10 is a 10% solution of 4-tert-Butyl-1,2-dihydroxy benzene = 4-tert-Butylcatechol in aliphatic ester. Inhibitor NLC-10 is used at ambient temperatures for extending: 1) gel time of a mixture of UP resin/peroxide/accelerator; 2) pot life of a mixture UP resin/peroxide; 3) pot life of a mixture UP resin/amine accelerator. Inhibitor NLC-10 is not advised to improve the shelf life of a SMC or BMC formulation. In this application special peroxides like Trigonox 21LS is recommended to improve the shelf life.
