  • QPAC®100 leaves very little ash residue on decomposition: less than 10 ppm. This results in excellent mechanical and/or electrical properties
  • Decomposition takes place at low temperature, which is important for thermal sensitive materials, and does so more efficiently than other binders
  • QPAC®100 has a higher glass transition temperature (Tg) than either QPAC®25 and QPAC®40, offering greater stability at higher temperatures
  • It will decompose in a wide range of atmospheres including oxygen, air, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen and vacuum
