EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 3192

 

 

Product Description

EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 3192 is a modified polyamidoamine supplied at 100 percent solids. It is designed for use with liquid epoxy resins in formulating high solids, high-build coatings. Such coatings are used in high solids, tile-like wall applications, corrosion resistant primers and topcoats for high performance maintenance coatings.

 

Application Areas/Suggested Uses

  • High performance maintenance coatings
  • Masonry coatings
  • Splash zone protective coatings

 

Benefits

  • High solids formulations, 70 to 90 percent
  • No “sweat-out” of curing agent with proper induction time
  • Films exhibit excellent chemical, water and corrosion resistance

General Information

Coatings formulated with EPIKURE Curing Agent 3192 at solids levels greater than 85 percent have a usable pot life of 1.5 to 2 hours. Such coatings, known as tile-like coatings, are generally applied to interior concrete block. Their high solids content bridges and fills the voids in the block, helping to promote a ceramic tile appearance.

 

Primers and enamels intended primarily for the protection of metallic substrates are formulated at volume solids levels of 65 percent to 75 percent. The additional organic solvent reduces the system to normal application viscosity and lengthens the pot life to 4 to 6 hours. An induction time of 30 to 60 minutes is required.

 

A properly formulated EPIKURE Curing Agent 3192 finishing system consisting of a corrosion resistant primer and two coats of enamel can be easily applied to yield a thickness of 15 to 20 mils film-forming solids. Such coatings systems exhibit outstanding humidity and salt spray resistance properties. Applied over sand-blasted steel panels at a dry film thickness of 15 mils, they easily withstand high humidity and salt fog environments for more than 1500 hours. The ability to withstand repeated splash and spillage of and immersion in water, dilute bases and organic/inorganic acids is typical of epoxy-amine coatings.
