Industry Standard Catalyst
MEKP (Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide) is a catalyst used in the composites industry for polyester and vinyl ester resins and gel coats. It reacts with the resin to turn it from a liquid to a solid (cure it). It is used in varying ratios, generally between 1%-3%, depending on the product being used.
Each resin product is available as a kit with a sufficient of amount of MEKP. However, MEKP may be purchased individually, as shown here.
MEKP is an organic peroxide and should always be handled with care, using the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment.

with the results. So naturally I went back to the same
product and was again pleased with the results.
The small bottles though are difficult to work with and would be great if had a dropper top or something of that nature built in to dispense else when trying to just get a few drops it runs down the side of the bottle.
My solution was a 1ml medical syringe with the needle cut off. A dropper nozzle cap would have solved this more conveniently.
