EPIKURE™ Polyamides are one of the most popular types of amine curing agents. Benefits include superior corrosion and water resistance, flexibility and toughness, superior adhesion to metal, good impact resistance, noncritical mix ratios and long pot life. Certain modified polyamides can be used to develop higher solids formulations that offer superior performance.
See the "Technical Data Sheets" section for information on individual products.
EPIKURE Polyamides are used in adhesive applications, as well as in primer, midcoat and topcoat formulations for ships, bridges, industrial equipment, hopper cars, tank trucks, automotive refinishes and industrial flooring. They are also used in putties, sealants and electrical encapsulation.
See the "Applications & Formulations" section for Starting Formulations and additional information.
