Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) RN-3038
Pour mixed system into molds, preheated to 80°C, that have been coated with a Cytec mold release.
Automatic metering and mixing equipment can be used with all the RN-3038 systems.
Heat pre-weighed amounts of RN-3038 to 80-100°C and degas at 1-5mm of vacuum for at least 5 minutes or until excessive bubbling stops. Containers should be unlined metal, plastic or glass and should be large enough to allow for foaming during degassing.
When adding MbOCA to RN-3038, the MbOCA must be melted at 120°C prior to mixing. CONACURE° AH-50 is a liquid at room temperature and does not require preheating prior to mixing with RN-3038. After adding curative, mix thoroughly and degas at 1-5mm for 1 to 2 minutes.
