Material Options: ALKYDS

Alkyds: Enhancing Molding Possibilities with Durability and Finish

Alkyds are thermosetting unsaturated polyester resins that are produced by reacting an organic alcohol with an organic acid, dissolved in and reacted with unsaturated monomers such as styrene, diallyl phthalate, diacetone acrylamide, or vinyl toluene. Alkyds also have excellent heat resistance and are dimensionally stable under high temperatures. As a molding material for compression molding, alkyds offer excellent dielectric strength.

Typical Applications:
Electrical applications like circuit breaker insulation, switchgear components, cases, housings, capacitor and resistor encapsulation, automotive parts, and coatings.
