Methacrylate Resin

Diovar methacrylate resin has been developed for civil engineering and construction applications. It is a resin for flooring, for resin concrete, and a binder to improve the functionality of roads (non-slip, water penetrate pavement reinforcement, heat shield pavement and others) that possess the functions of flexibility and low-temperature curing.

General Features of Methacrylate Resin Cured Materials

  1. Excellent fast curability
    Curing times can be made 0.5 to 1 hour in 0 to 35°C conditions. Curing is also possible in extremely low temperature conditions of -30 to 0°C. (Frozen surfaces cannot be worked)
  2. Working time is easily adjusted
    By adjusting the amount of curing agent used, the appropriate working time can be ensured for the temperature when working.
  3. Excellent adhesive properties in asphalt and cement
    Possess good adhesive power because it combines with asphalt component when it cures. Possess good adhesive properties because it has excellent wettability and impregnating ability in cement concrete.
  4. Abundant variations in liquid resin and cured material characteristics
    A lineup of products that possess properties and cured material characteristics according to application.
