Methyltetrahydrophthalic anhydride (MTHPA-EG) is a versatile low cost liquid anhydride hardener.
MTHPA-EG/8K is one of several pre-catalysed versions of MTHPA-EG. It contains a proprietary catalys
t that reduces cure time and boots glass transition temperature (Tg). With proper cure clycles a Tg
value of 140°C can be achieved. This product is specially formulated to remain liquid during the
winter season (typical pour point: -20°C to - 15°C). It provides unique characteristics to epoxy
cured materials such as high voltage and temperature resistance.
It finds use in the coating of wind mill blades and in reinforced plastics, filament winding pro
ducts, construction and sport equipment, laminated sheets as well as in the production of electrical
parts such as capacitors, resistors, transformers, ignition coils.
Specific applications include filament winding, adhesive, potting, casting, encapsulation and vacuum
