MEKP allows polyester and vinyl ester resins to cure by reacting with the promoter in the resin, or with heat. This starts the chemical reaction of the resin with the styrene monomer (present in the resin) allowing crosslinks to form between them. These crosslinks act as braces, joining the components in the liquid resin together. When some of the crosslinks have formed, the resin forms a gel and is said to be “gelled”. When most of the crosslinks have formed, the resin forms a solid and is said to be “cured”.
Since MEKP must start a chemical reaction within the resin it must be a reactive compound. This makes it one of the most hazardous materials in the composites industry, since it can react with other materials causing a fire or with the human body resulting in chemical burns.
Adding ratio to resin is approximately is %1,5-2.
