ESCAT 110 is a substituted imidazole catalyst supplied in the undiluted active form. It is used to accelerate the cure of powder coatings based on the carboxyl-epoxy reaction, or for pure epoxy systems. Typical systems include hybrids such as polyester-epoxy, carboxyl acrylic-epoxy, and polyesters cured by GMA functional acrylics. Polyester-TGIC and polyester- PT-910 reactions can also be accelerated. The key benefit of incorporating ESCAT 110 is to reduce the cure temperature of a particular system, or shorten the required bake time at a given cure temperature. Recommended usage level is 0.1 – 0.3% of ESCAT 110 based on total formula weight. Each application should be tested to determine the optimum catalyst level to achieve the desired cure time and coating properties. ESCAT 110 is also available in a 50% wax masterbatch form called ESCAT 50.
