One of the most challenging applications for methyl ethyl ketone peroxides (MEKP) occurs in gelcoats, reports Brazilian company Polinox. Hybrids of resins and pigments that protect and finish composite parts, gelcoats undergo important changes in their performance if the peroxide exhibits, for example, a high concentration of water. The company says defects such as roughness and early yellowing of the laminate can be avoided with the adoption of peroxides such as its Brasnox DM50.
