EPIKURE™ Curing Agent P-100

Description

EPIKURE Curing Agent P-100 is a curing agent /accelerator for low temperature curing epoxy powder coatings.

EPIKURE Curing Agent P-100 is a versatile, chemically stable, low bake or ultra-rapid epoxy powder coating converter. It is a solid amine adduct especially designed to cure epoxy resin powder coatings at temperatures as low as 275°F (135°C). This permits the use of energy saving baking schedules. EPIKURE Curing Agent P-100 is compatible with epoxy resins when extruded or hot melt mixed in the normal fashion. This permits a truly homogeneous blend of epoxy resin and curing agent and results in a cured film with excellent appearance. Because of these features EPIKURE Curing Agent P-100 is a significant improvement over accelerated dicyandiamide type curing agents which are widely used in the thin film decorative or functional epoxy powder coatings.

EPIKURE Curing Agent P-100 can be either incorporated as a catalyst with EPON™ Resin 2002 at levels of 2 phr (parts per 100 parts of epoxy resin) or it can be blended with dicyandiamide to function as an accelerator. This provides the powder coating formulator with a wide latitude in meeting specific baking requirements.
