Versamid® 100 X 65 is a xylene solution of a semi-solid, reactive polyamide resin designed for use with solid or liquid epoxy resins for room temperature cure thermoset coating applications.

Benefits

  • Long pot life with short tack-free times
  • High equivalent weight
  • FDA compliant*

Chemical Composition

Polyamide resin based on dimerized fatty acid and polyamines

Application Properties

Versamid® 100 X-65 is a semi-solid, reactive polyamide resin designed for use with solid or liquid epoxy resins for room temperature cure thermoset coating applications. Versamid® 100 X-65 and epoxy resin systems provide long pot lives and fast tack-free formulations. Formulations based on this resin system cure less quickly than Versamid® 115 systems and exhibit somewhat lower chemical and solvent resistance than Versamid® 125 coating systems. Versamid® 100 X-65 and epoxy resin systems are recommended for applications such as maintenance coating applications, primers, and enamel paint formulations.

Regulatory Status

TSCA (USA), DSL (Canada), PICCS (Philippines), AICS (Australia), ENCS/MITI (Japan), IECSC (China), EINECS (EU)

Package, Storage, Handling

Versamid® 100 X-65 may absorb moisture and carbon dioxide if left in open containers, which may result in an increased viscosity and some foaming when curing epoxy resins. Therefore, it should be kept in tightly closed containers when not in use and stored in a cool, dry place. Properly stored and protected, an unopened container of Versamid® 100 X-65 should have a shelf life of two years.
