Description

Latent catalyst for ROMP activated by dry hydrogen chloride.

  • excellent latency and shelf life – solutions of PolCat (20 – 200 mol ppm) in monomers (DCPD, norbornene and their derivatives)  can be stored at room temperature for 3 - 6 months 
  • high activity after activation – short working time , 1 – 5 s 
  • usually used in two formulations system – PolCat in monomer is mixed with dry HCl in monomer in the ratio of 1:1 – 10:1, v/v
