PCAT - 1030 is tris-(dimethyl-aminomethyl) phenol, a technical grade curing agent. It is Lewis Base catalyst, works to boost the curing mechanism of epoxy resin. It activates the reaction of epoxy resin with polyamide, their adducts, amidoamines, amine adducts, phenalkamines & phenalkamides etc., It also helps to activate the reaction between epoxy polysulphides, various aliphatic acids & anhydrides. Generally, it is also use to catalyse & accelerate reaction between polyols / isocynates & tzimerization of isocynates.
