  • CAS number

    98-29-3; 6846-50-0
  • Regional availability

    Africa, Asia, Asia Pacific, China, Europe, India, Middle East
  • Chemical name

    4-tert-Butyl-1,2-dihydroxy benzene
  • Applications

    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 lengthening: 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-1 can be used instead of Inhibitor NLC-10 to ensure a more accurate dosage. 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 and Trigonox 42LS are recommended to improve the shelf life.
