Epoxy Curing Agent

Paladin's epoxy curing agent list comprise mainly phenalkamine & adducts, phenalkamide & adducts, cycloaliphatic amine adducts, and polyamide.

Phenalkamine

Paladin's Phenalkamine curing agent are produced by Mannich reaction of cardanol with formaldehyde and polyamine. The phenalkamine curing agents based on renewable biomass has main advantage of fast cure at low temperature, good chemical resistance, moisture tolerance, non-blushing properties, and good surface appearance. Also presence of long side chain on cardanol gives good pot life, goof flexibility and surface tolerance. The presence of hydrophobicity due to side chain brings excellent water and sea water resistance. Adhesion of phenalkamine to poorly prepared surface and wet surface is good due to presence of side chain which does not allow water to interfere between surface and resin.
