CYMEL 303 LF resin PRODUCT DESCRIPTION CYMEL 303 LF resin is a highly methylated, monomeric melamine crosslinker supplied in liquid form at >98% solids content. Its high extent of alkylation and low tendency to self-condense make CYMEL 303 LF resin a highly effective crosslinking agent for a broad range of applications such as can, container, automotive and general industrial coatings. While CYMEL 303 LF resin is insoluble in water, it shows excellent compatibility with water-soluble backbone polymers and provides very good stability in amine-stabilized waterborne formulations. BENEFITS Solvent free Excellent balance of hardness and flexibility Fast catalyzed cure response Excellent stability Low free formaldehyde APPLICATION AREAS Coil coatings Can and container coatings Automotive finishes High solids and waterborne coatings General industrial finishes Inks PHYSICAL PROPERTIES Property Range Method Appearance Clear Liquid Visual Non-volatile by wt. > 98% Foil, 45 min/45 C Viscosity, 23 C 3000 6000 mPa-s Dynamic Viscosity Free formaldehyde < Sulfite Method Color, APHA < 70 ISO 6271 SOLUBILITY Alcohols Complete Ketones Complete Esters Complete Aromatic hydrocarbons Complete Aliphatic hydrocarbons Partial Water Insoluble COMPATIBILITY Acrylic resins Very good Alkyd resins Very good Polyester resins Very good Epoxy resins Very good BACKBONE POLYMER SELECTION CYMEL 303 LF resin contains mainly methoxymethyl functional sites making it a highly effective crosslinker for backbone polymer resins containing hydroxyl, carboxyl, or amide functional groups, such as those found on alkyd, polyester, or acrylic resins. Its high monomer content and low tendency to self-condense results in films with high flexibility and formability when paired with inherently flexible polymers, such as polyester resins. The effective equivalent weight of CYMEL 303 LF typically ranges from 130-190, however, its optimum loading should be determined experimentally for each formulation with consideration of the performance properties to be optimized. CATALYSIS Because of its high extent of alkylation, CYMEL 303 LF resin responds best to sulfonic acid catalysts, like CYCAT 4040 catalyst or CYCAT 600 catalyst. Generally, to of CYCAT 4040 catalyst on total resin solids of the formulation is sufficient to provide good cure at normal baking schedules (15-20 minutes at 120-150 C) in solvent-borne systems. Water-borne systems generally require temperatures of 150 C or higher to effect cure. Higher concentrations of catalyst might be necessary if there are basic pigments or additives present in the formulation. FORMULATION STABILITY The stability of formulated systems containing CYMEL 303 LF resin can be enhanced by the addition of primary alcohols, amines or a combination of these. Low molecular weight primary alcohols, such as ethanol and n-butanol, are most effective. Recommended amines are DMEA or 2-AMP at a concentration of on total resin solids. Package stability can also be enhanced by the use of a blocked acid catalyst such as CYCAT 4045 catalyst. For waterborne systems, pH should be adjusted between to acheive optimum stability. STORAGE STABILITY CYMEL 303 LF resin has a shelf life of 5 years from the date of manufacture when stored at temperatures between 5 C and 30 C. Although lower temperatures are not detrimental to stability, its viscosity will increase, Crosslinkers TECHNICAL DATA SHEET Subject title Worldwide Contact Info: Disclaimer: Allnex Group companies ( Allnex ) decline any liability with respect to the use made by anyone of the information contained herein.

The viscosity will reduce again on warming, but care should be taken to avoid excessive local heat, as this can cause an irreversible increase in viscosity.
