RF is the sole distributor of AKPA's wide range of catalyst systems in Australia.

AKPA is a large Turkish industrial chemical producer, specialising in peroxides, dryers and promoter systems supporting paint and composite industries.

AKPA produces many different chemicals for supply to the world market.  Due to its strategic geographical position, it provides fast turnaround times for supply.  Today, AKPA  exports regularly to more than 55 countries, of which international distribution represents  70% of our total turnover.

AKPA concentrates its R&D activities in high-tech labs in order to meet customer requirements.  Founded  in 2017 the R&D Center in 2017 fulfills product development, whilst our Environmental Laboratory ensures the webeing of our customers and the environment. Additionally AKPA collaborates in joint projects with technical universities.

 AKPA to develop the quality of the product and guarantee was certified by ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System Standards.  It was received approval by OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System Standards. Thereby supply with high-volume products to the European Union countries in accordance with the legislation of EU, REACH and ECHA.

AKPA A50LR AKPA A60 AKPA LPT APEROX C-50 AKPEROX CMP75 AKPA Red Dye
Description AKPEROX A50 LR is a medium reactivity, general purpose MEKP for curing unsaturated polyester (UP) resins at room temperature. AKPEROX A60 is a general purpose MEKP for curing unsaturated polyester (UP) resins at room and high temperatures. Provides faster gel and cure time than AKPEROX A50LR. APEROX LPT is a mixture of MEKP in diisobutyl phthalate. LPT is a general purpose MEKP recommended for curing unsaturated polyester resins and vinyl ester resins. Suitable in gelcoats, given low hydrogen peroxide and water content. AKPEROX C-50 is a peroxide mixture based on cumene hydroperoxide. AKPEROX C-50 is especially developed for the cure vinylester or phenacryl resins in Combination with a cobalt accelerator. Packaging Mixture of methyl ethyl ketone peroxide and cumyl hydroperoxide. AKPEROX CMP75 is a liquid polymerization initiator for the room temperature cure with slower gel time than MEKP, better final cure and low impurity levels advantages.

Benefits AKPEROX A50 is a general purpose MEKP for curing unsaturated polyester (UP) resins at room temperature. Generally used in resins containing metal salts such as cobalt. Suitable for the curing of gelcoat resins, laminating & castings resins, vinylester resins. Further it is very suitable for FRP pipe production. In regard to gelcoat applications it performs very well due to low water and hydrogen peroxide content. AKPEROX A60 is a general purpose MEKP for curing unsaturated polyester (UP) resins at room temperature. Generally used in resins containing metal salts such as cobalt. Suitable for the curing of gelcoat resins, laminating & castings resins, vinyl ester resins. Provides earlier gel and cure time than AKPEROX A50. Particularly recommended to be used in GRP Pipe production and general purpose applications. AKPEROX LPT is a general purpose MEKP for curing unsaturated polyester (UP) resins at room and high temperatures. In a comparison with other Ketone peroxides, LPT provides longer gelling time. Particularly suitable for longer gelling time needed applications as well as production of big parts and coiling type pipe production. Recommended to be used with vinylester resins. Suitable for gelcoat applications in point of low Hydrogen Peroxide besides low water content in order to prevent bubbles and cracks for surface quality AKPEROX C-50 is a peroxide mixture based on cumene hydroperoxide. C-50 exhibits excellent cure when used with cobalt promoted vinyl ester resins. Further the vinyl ester resin shows low or no gas / bubble formation and a lower peak exotherm. Especially suitable in vinyl ester laminates require minimal shrinkage, or where the laminate is of varying thickness varying. Able to be used very successfully with both vinyl ester and polyester resins, as the final cure will be excellent. In regard to polyester resins CMP75 exhibits longer geltimes, lower impurity levels and lower peak exotherm. Applications requiring low shrinkage and exotherms, whilst operating at ambient temperatures will benefit from CMP75. AKPA Performance Red Dye concentrates are available for selected AKPEROX peroxide products to enable the user the ensure that the peroxide cure initiator /catalyst is being uniformly mixed and applied in unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins.These dye concentrates are available in permanent or fading formulations as described above. Non-fading red dye for most standard,low water content ketone peroxides.Ready mixtures of peroxides are stable for several months if stored properly.Peroxide products for which this is a suitable dye can be pre-dyed at the time of manufacture for selected products or added at point of use.
