CARDAMINE : PHENALKAMINE EPOXY CURING AGENTS Specialist polymers derived from cashew nut shell liquid

About

Phenalkamine curing agents are established cross-linking agents utilised with epoxy resins in the formulation of coating systems servicing numerous market sectors including coatings for the marine, transport, civil engineering and construction sectors as well as industrial protective coatings and anti-corrosion protection. We offer a range of industry standard phenalkamines that have long established application history and may be suitable for many areas. Additionally we have made subtle technological improvement to enhance the performance of the standard grades and reduce regulatory pressures and enhance application performance. We have added a series of next generation products that offer significant advantages over the conventional grades with lower toxicity, much faster thin film cure speed and improved film performance.

Key Benefits

CARDAMINE ENHANCEMENTS Whilst all of the grades contained within are characterised by tolerant mix ratio, high flexibility and moisture resistance there have been several enhancements made in phenalkamine technology providing further movement in product performance with particular emphasis on: REDUCING HANDLING ISSUES ENHANCING CURE SPEED AND CURE UNDER ADVERSE CONDITIONS IMPROVING OVERCOATABILITY INCREASING HYDROPHOBICITY AND CORROSION PROTECTION

Applications

Coating systems servicing numerous market sectors including coatings for the marine, transport, civil engineering and construction sectors as well as industrial protective coatings and anti-corrosion protection
