Versamid® 140

Versamid® 140 is a medium to low viscosity, reactive polyamide-based resin solution designed for use with solid or liquid epoxy resins to provide tough, chemical-resistant thermoset coating applications that cure at room temperature.

Key Features and Benefits:

  •  Combination of hardness and flexibility
  •  High chemical and solvent resistance 
  •  FDA compliant*

Chemical Composition: Polyamide resin based on dimerized fatty acid and polyamines

Application Properties:

Versamid® 140 is a medium to low viscosity, reactive polyamide resin solution designed for use with solid or liquid epoxy resins to provide tough, chemical-resistant thermoset coating applications that cure at room temperature. This resin is also useful in adhesive applications. Versamid® 140 and epoxy resin coating systems are more chemical and solvent resistant than Versamid® 115 systems and generally lower in viscosity than Versamid® 125 systems. It offers a unique combination of hardness and flexibility along with the highest chemical and solvent resistance of the dimer-based polyamide resin series. Versamid® 140 and epoxy resin systems are recommended for applications such as maintenance coating applications, primers, high solids enamel paint formulations.

All systems based on Versamid® 140 show good resistance against aliphatic hydrocarbons, lubricants, alkaline solutions and diluted acids; good to fair resistance against atmospheric agents and water.

Regulatory Status:

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

Package, Storage, Handling:

Versamid® 140 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® 140 should have a shelf life of at least one year.
