CHEMICAL STRUCTURE

The improved performance of NI-DURA 1054 epoxy resin can be directly linked to its chemical structure
  1. In Conventional epoxy resin, the isopropylidene bridge between the two phenols makes it more subject to oxidation by concentrated sulfuric acid or heat and air. However, the methylene bridge in NI-DURA 1054 resin allows easier rotation and lower viscosity

APPLICATION

A. Tools - will vary due to the job - basic tools range from straight edge or notch trowel to rollers and squeegees depending how much material is to be applied.
B. MIXING: NI-1054 Novolac Epoxy Resin is mixed at a ratio of two parts resin to one part curing agent by volume. Mix thoroughly for 3 minutes. Work time is approximately 15-20 minutes but may vary with temperature changes. Mix only the amount of material that can be applied in the allotted amount of time.
C. Procedure
  1. Work out of tray.
  2. Roll or trowel material to desired thickness. A notch trowel will apply the most material and a vinyl squeegee will give the smallest build.
D. WARNING: Harmful if taken internally. Keep out of reach of children. Not intended for repackaging or retail sales. For Industrial use only. Could cause skin irritation. If skin contact does occur, wash with soap and plenty of water. Protective clothing and goggles should be worn to protect against skin and eye contact. Employ proper ventilation. If skin contact does occur, wash with soap and plenty of water. WARNING: Employ proper ventilation.

STORAGE

A. Factory sealed container shelf life is 6 months for the unmixed materials.
B. Always rotate inventory using oldest materials first.

PACKAGING

NI-1054 Novolac Epoxy Resin is a two component system: two parts resin to one part curing agent. It is packaged in kit form: 9-gallon kit; 15-gallon kit; 55-gallon drums.
