  • Applications

    Trigonox V388 is general purpose methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP) for the curing of unsaturated polyester resins in the presence of a cobalt accelerator at room and elevated temperatures.The curing system Trigonox V388/cobalt accelerator is developed for general purpose GRP- and non GRP-applications such as the curing of laminating resins and castings.  Practical experience throughout many years has proven that for marine applications a special MEKP with low water content and without polar compounds is demanded in order to prevent from osmosis and other problems. Butanox M-50 is the MEKP advised for this application.For room temperature application it is necessary to use Trigonox V388 together with a cobalt accelerator (e.g. Accelerator NL-49P).
