CYMEL 370 resin is a partially methylated melamine crosslinker supplied in isobutanol. Like other high imino resins, Cymel 370 is fast reacting and has a high tendency to self-condense resulting in films with high film hardness, gloss, chemical resistance and exterior durability. The high reactivity, combined with high solids content makes CYMEL 370 resin suitable for a wide range of solventborne and waterborne industrial bake formulations.
Crosslinkers are used with epoxy, polyester, acrylic and alkyd resins and provide the desired balance of flexibility, exterior durability, chemical resistance and film toughness. CYCAT® acid catalysts enhance crosslinking for low acid-containing polymers and lower-temperature applications. The new CYMEL® NF formaldehyde-free crosslinkers are ideal for applications where formaldehyde emissions are a concern.
