Second, basic performance.
Methyl tetrahydrophthalic anhydride, referred to as MTHPA, MeTHPA, has two isomers, namely 4-methyltetrahydrophthalic anhydride and 3-methyltetrahydrophthalic anhydride, having a melting point of 65 °C and 63 °C. It is rarely used as a curing agent alone. The actual commodity is a liquid mixture that isomerized to various isomers. The molecular weight is 166.17, and light yellow color, transparent oily liquid, relative density of 1.20 - 1.22. Freezing point < -20 °C. The boiling point is 115-155 °C. Viscosity (25 °C) 40 - 80 mPa · s. The refractive index is 1.4960 to 1. 4980. The anhydride group content is ≥ 40%. The neutralization equivalent is 81-85. The flash point is 137 - 150 °C. Soluble in acetone, ethanol, toluene, etc. It has good stability in air and is not easy to precipitate crystals. Low toxicity, LD502102mg/kg.
