Dilution Curve

 - Dilution Properties - 1

  • Cardolite® NC - 513 is a low viscosity, monofunctional epoxy reactive diluent that can be used to increase flexibility, impact resistance, and water resistance.
  • This reactive diluent is ideal for formulating low emission and low odor solvent- free floor coatings.
  • It's good reactivity means that this diluent react completely into the epoxy network, which can increase the bond strength.
  • It is an excellent replacement for toxic or environmentally unfriendly glycidyl ether based diluents.
