  • Best Practices for Elantas (Altana) TU-981

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Containers used for weighing or mixing should be metal, glass, or plastic. Mixing rods should also be made of metal, plastic, or glass. Avoid paper containers and wooden sticks.

      If void-free castings are desired, use a separate container for mixing, with enough space to allow for expansion during degassing (usually 2 to 3 times the volume of material being mixed). In many applications, the degassing step may be eliminated.

    2. Application

      If parts are to be demolded, a quality CONAP® mold release should be applied prior to pouring.

    3. Mixing

      Weigh the correct proportions of the two components together, MIX THOROUGHLY, and degas at 28-29 inches of mercury vacuum to remove the air entrapped during mixing.

      Pour mixed material into molds or fixtures in a manner to avoid trapping air bubbles or pockets and cure as recommended. Porous molds should be properly sealed prior to using. Contact Cytec’s Technical Service Department or your local sales manager for assistance.

    4. Clean-Up

      Clean equipment with appropriate solvents. N-methyl pyrrolidone dissolves cured polyurethane. Dibasic ester (DBE) can be used to flush equipment.
