Applications of Aminoamine, Amine & Polyamide Curing Agents
The unique characteristic of polyamide and amine cured epoxies is their low viscosity, high-flexibility, long pot life, excellent adhesion to substrates and excellent corrosion and water resistance. Applications include:
- Joint sealants
- NSF potable water coatings
- Potting and encapsulation
- Patching compounds
- Maintenance coating applications
- High solids enamel paint formulations
Versamid® Polyamide Curing Agent
Versamid® products have proven to be superior curing agents in many applications, such as industrial maintenance and marine coatings,
high-performance architectural paints, high-solids and conventional coatings.
Advantages of Polyamide Curing Agents
- Highly resistant to chemical and water corrosion
- Strong adhesion to a variety of substrates
- Long pot life
- Lower sensitivity to substrate impurities
- Most comply with FDA regulations
Huntsman Advanced Materials manufactures the Versamid® brand of polyamide curing agent. Versamid® is available with a wide range of properties offering exceptionally rapid cure and flexibility development.
Versamid® G Amidoamine Curing Agent
Versamid® G aminoamine curing agents offer many of the same application benefits as Versamid® polyamides, along with lower viscosity. High system solids and as low as zero VOC compositions can be produced.
Advantages of Amidoamine Curing Agents
- Superior wetting characteristics when compared to aliphatic amines, aromatic amines, and anhydrides
- Good adhesion
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Tougher, less toxic and non-migrating in preference to amine or polyamine epoxy coreactants
- Fast cure time—Both Versamid® and Versamid® G curing agents cure epoxy agents at room temperature in several hours or at elevated temperatures in several minutes
Huntsman Advanced Materials manufactures the Versamid® G brand of aminoamine curing agent. Versamid® G is available with a wide range of properties offering fast cure and exceptional chemical and water resistance.
