Diallyl Isophthalate - DAIP

Advantages

High heat resistance (180°C/360°F).  No post cure is required in the case of laminates.  No volatile products released during curing.  Superior track resistance compared to phenolic.  Good electrical properties maintained at high temperature and high humidity. Non-toxic - No volatile solvents as with Polyesters or dermatitic reactions as with Epoxies.  Wide range of colours. Higher strength than Epoxy or Polyester.

Disadvantages

Poor resistance to acids.  High coefficient of friction.

Applications

Moulding compound: Electrical connectors, insulators, tool handles, pump impellers.

 

Coating resin: Sealant for metal castings and wood

 

Laminating resin: PCBs, high temp applications, radomes, trunking.
