EPIKURE Curing Agents

Introduction

At Resolution Performance Products LLC (RPP), no customers problem is too big or too small for us to help solve. Say you need a resin system with a lower temperature cure? Just say how low. A resin system that cures underwater? No problem. Superior chemical resistance? Easy. We can help solve these difficult problems because we offer one of the most complete lines of curing agents (and resins) available and one of the broadest lines of resin systems for coatings. As an innovative leader in the chemical industry, were committed to constantly improving and strengthening our unparalleled line of systems and solutions. Our more than 50 years experience and technical knowledge enables us to help you select from among our many resin systems to satisfy your specific formulation requirements. Our extensive product line also includes several high performance specialty curatives to meet your more difficult use requirements. We have, for example, amine hardeners that are designed for low temperature cure, blush free film, surface tolerant tank linings, underwater cure, and MDA replacements. These products find application in end-uses such as marine, industrial maintenance, pipe linings, automotive refinishes, civil engineering, secondary containment, and numerous other coatings applications. Were continuously working to satisfy the various performance needs of our customers. The myriad of curing agent technologies offered by RPP also enable our customers to tailor the performance of their formulations to meet the challenging demands of their customers, while satisfying regulatory requirements. And, as always, all of our products are backed with extensive technical expertise, customer service, and support. EPIKURE Curing Agents provide advantages such as: Ease of handling and convenient mix ratios Improved cure system strength, flexibility and toughness Improved peel and impact strength Improved cured system chemical, solvent and water resistance Ability to alter the reactivity of the system Blush and sweat-out free films

At A Glance

EPIKURE Curing Agents 3000 Series (see pages 5) These amidoamine curing agents offer the advantages of low viscosity, good adhesion to concrete, higher pigment loadings, improved room temperature cure, good temperature resistance, control of system potlife, and a broad range of reactivities. Modified amidoamine curing agents can be accelerated for low temperature cure, underwater cure, and do not require induction. Amidoamine curing agents are typically used in marine and maintenance high solids coatings, concrete coatings, and adhesive formulations. EPIKURE Curing Agents 3100 Series (see pages 6-7) These polyamide curing agents are often used in adhesive applications, as well as primer, midcoat and topcoat applications on ships, bridges, industrial equipment, hopper cars, tank trucks, automotive refinishes, and industrial flooring. Benefits include superior corrosion and water resistance, system flexibility and toughness, room temperature cure, very good metal adhesion, good impact resistance, non-critical mix ratios, and long potlife. Several specialty polyamides can also be used to develop high solids formulations that offer truly superior performance. EPIKURE Curing Agents 3200 Series (see pages 8-9) These aliphatic amine curing agents offer a very high degree of chemical resistance, rapid room temperature cure, low color and viscosity, and high heat distortion temperatures. Modified aliphatic amines have lower volatility and much lower tendency to blush than neat aliphatic amine hardeners. Modified aliphatic amines offer a wide range of options for tailoring reactivity, application viscosity, and film performance to end-use requirements. In addition, RPPs aliphatic amine Mannich bases give low temperature cure with superior chemical resistance and blush resistance. The 3200 Series finds use in applications such as solventless coatings, chemical resistant tank linings, industrial flooring, adhesives, composites, tooling, and casting. They can also be used as accelerators for amidoamine and polyamide hardeners. EPIKURE Curing Agents 3300 Series (see page 10) These cycloaliphatic amine curing agents are often an effective alternative to aromatic amines in composites, adhesives, tooling, and casting applications. They provide important benefits such as superior chemical resistance, low viscosity, high gloss, and low color films that are non-blushing and non-yellowing. Modified cycloaliphatic amines are used in coatings and flooring, chemical resistant industrial formulations, tank linings, secondary containment coatings, and low temperature cure applications. EPIKURE Curing Agents 3500 Series (see page 11) These ketimine curing agents give cure rates and performances similar to aliphatic amines, but offer the advantage of longer potlife. These blocked curatives react slowly in the absence of moisture, but unblock during application to form a polyamine and a volatile ketone. Main applications include high solids coatings and certain dip applications. The 3500 Series offers a range of mix ratios and potlives, and allows tailored formulation cures at film thicknesses of 10-30 mils under standard humidity applications.

At A Glance (cont.)

EPIKURE Curing Agents 8000 Series (see page 12) These waterborne curing agents are designed for use in waterborne epoxy coatings with standard liquid epoxy resins, water-dispersible liquid resins, or solid epoxy resin dispersions. They offer a wide variety of performance options, ranging from chemical resistant coatings for masonry, to corrosion resistant metal primers. These products are based on a variety of technologies designed to make the curing agents water-reducible. Binder systems based on these waterborne curatives have found commercial use in applications such as masonry coatings, floor toppings, general maintenance topcoats, high gloss epoxy flooring, corrosion resistant metal primers, automotive refinishes, and business machine applications. EPIKURE Curing Agents P-Series (see page 13) These imidazole adduct, accelerated dicyandiamide, and linear phenolic curing agents have been developed for a wide variety of powder coating end-uses including decorative and functional powder coatings. EPIKURE Curing Agents Accelerators (see page 14) These products are available as catalysts for epoxy fusion reactions, or reactions with DICY, phenolics, andydrides and amines. As catalysts, they facilitate and speed the rate of reaction. EPIKURE Curing Agents 9000 Series (see page 15) The 9000 Series is designed to work with our 9000 Series resins (as well as other resins), to meet the needs of the structural market. These curing agents offer a high degree of chemical resistance, low viscosity, and high heat distortion temperatures. They are normally heat cured to achieve optimum performance.

The Formulators Choice

As you can see, we have many curative choices available in the EPIKURE Curing Agent product line to achieve your desired performance. Each of these curing agents provides unique benefits for epoxy resin system formulators.
