Fast cure at low temperature, good chemical resistance, moisture tolerance, non-blushing properties, and good surface appearance, workable pot life, flexibility and surface tolerance, fresh water and sea water resistance, Adhesion to poorly prepared surface and wet surface.
Phenalkamine curing agent provide very fast cure speed at low temperature attributed to its chemical structure. Paladin offers epoxy curing agents for primers, midcoats, top coats, and direct-to-metal coatings for year round applications. With a broad range of products Paladin’s phenalkamine curing agents cure even at very low temperatures (below -10°C) and provide very good water and corrosion resistance. Our phenalkamine and Phenalkamide series gives freedom to formulator to choose product suitable for their application. We can offer both solvent borne and solvent free curing agents suitable for marine and protective.
Formulator can choose Paladin’s diluents and modifiers for making solvent free coating formulation and reduce viscosity. Use of diluents reduce VOC content and increases solids of formulation with advantages related to cardanol based diluent.
The term overcoat window can be defined as “Range between minimum and maximum time permissible after application that coating has reached the state of curing so that it can be successfully top coated”. Paladin can solve problem of short overcoat window between two coats, our phenalkamide in particular can fulfill the need. The longer overcoat interval is very desirable for complex batch constructions such as ships, windmills and off shore platforms that are first primed and then assembled to one structure at different locations after period of months have passed.
The formulator can achieve excellent corrosion resistance to immersed and atmospheric exposed structure with use of Paladin’s curing agents. The high degree of corrosion resistance can be achievable without use of expensive anticorrosive pigments. Phenalkamine and phenalkamide product range has outstanding water resistance coupled with excellent adhesion on wet, unprepared and difficult surfaces like stainless steel, galvanized steel, zinc reach, rusted metal, wood, concrete, aluminum.
