  • Upon decomposition, QPAC®130 leaves less than 10 ppm ash residue, resulting in superior mechanical and/or electrical properties
  • Low temperature decomposition is exceptional for thermal sensitive materials and is more efficient than other binders
  • QPAC®130 has a higher Tg than QPAC®25 and QPAC®40 offering more stability at higher temperatures
  • Decomposition can occur in a wide range of atmospheres including nitrogen, argon, hydrogen, air, oxygen and vacuum
