|1,4-Cyclohexanedicarboxylic Acid High Purity (CHDA-HP)
CHDA is a cycloaliphatic diacid for use in polyester resins for coatings and fiberglass-reinforced plastics. It is also ideally suited improving performance of waterborne, high solids, powder coatings and coil coating applications. CHDA is supplied as white to off-white powder in various package sizes.
Eastman CHDM-D is a symmetrical, high molecular weight cycloaliphatic glycol used to make saturated and unsaturated polyester resins. It has also found use as a glycol modifier for resins containing Eastman NPG™ glycol. Good chemical, stain, humidity, and corrosion resistance is achieved when using CHDM-D in polyester-melamine baking enamels for appliance, general metal, and automotive coatings.
Eastman CHDM-D90 is a 90/10 weight % solution of CHDM-D in water. It is a liquid at room temperature for easier handling. This symmetrical, high molecular weight cycloaliphatic glycol is used to make saturated and unsaturated polyester resins. It is commonly used as a glycol modifier for resins containing Eastman NPG™ glycol. The 10 weight % water is removed during heating of the resin reaction mixture. Good chemical, stain, humidity, and corrosion resistance is achieved when using CHDM-D90 in polyester-melamine baking enamels for appliance, general metal, and automotive coatings. It delivers good hydrolytic stability to waterborne polyester resins.
