Experimental studies were made to determine the effect of loading and particle size on the gel-time of an unsaturated polyester binder filled with crystalline potassium chloride powder. The filler chosen was found to exhibit neither absorbing nor catalytic effect on the curing system in the time scale of these studies. While the gel-time decreased with increase solid (filler) loading and with decreased particle size, the gel-temperature essentially remained constant. A surface area mechanism is proposed to explain the observed results.
