Upon storage, Exocure™ LED-W may exhibit some crystallization which can be successfully reversed by the application of heat ( maximum 145°F/63°C) and mild agitation.
Typically 9%-11% of ExoCure LED-W also has a built-in amine synergist to reduce oxygen inhibition. is used for lighter, more photo-transparent colors, and 10% to 16% of ExoCure LED-W is used for more photo-opaque colors.
