Product Details: Dicyclopentadiene
Dicyclopentadiene, aka DCPD or C10H12, is an artificial chemical compound created by heating naptha or gas oils such as crude oil. It is used in paints, adhesives, inks, and especially thermoset resins.
DCPD resin is characterized by its low viscosity and its resistance to heat, impact, and corrosive chemicals when compared to thermoplastic resins used in standard injection molding. This allows the resulting product to be large, strong, and lightweight and makes it a popular choice for protective coverings such as shields and hoods as well as the outer bodies of cars, trucks and machinery.
Dicyclopentadiene is a colorless, sand-like powder with a disagreeable Camphor-like odor. It becomes a liquid over 90oF (32oC). It is used to manufacture pesticides, paints, varnishes, and other chemicals.
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
