Pripol™ 1040
Perfect for high performance coating applications, Pripol 1040 is a trimer acid rich building block that offers excellent hydrophobicity and has good compatibility with other low-polarity materials. Pripol 1040 provides enhanced flexibility, even at low temperatures, which allows the product to deform under stress and prevents cracking of the coating.
