  • Applications

    Accelerator CF13 can be used in combination with Butanox® M-50 in an ambient temperature curing system for: hand lay-up and spray up application, polymer concrete manufacturing, other applications and market segments where Cobalt is an undesired trace element. Accelerator CF13 is ideally used in systems with ambient temperature curing. It is not recommended for curing at elevated temperatures (>80°C). Furthermore it should be noted that due to the presence of Copper the cured end product will have a shade of green color. Accelerator CF13 contains Copper chloride which makes the formulation slightly corrosive.
