Polyamide and amidoamine curing agents for epoxy applications

Ancamide® amidoamines are known for adhesion to concrete as well as performance under humid conditions and polyamides for water and corrosion resistance

Ancamide® curing agents from Evonik most often fall into two major classes: amidoamines and polyamides.

Amidoamines are known for their adhesion to concrete and performance under humid conditions. Evonik offers a range of amidoamines and adducts with varying reactivity, viscosity, cure speed and chemical resistance. Amidoamines are most commonly used in civil engineering applications such as flooring, concrete bonding and crack injection. They also find use in high solids coatings, adhesives, electrical encapsulation and wet lay-up laminating.

Polyamides are known for their water and corrosion resistance. Evonik offers a range of polyamides and adducts that include standard grades as well as grades that do not require an induction time, improved chemical resistance, lower viscosity and faster cure speed. Polyamides are most commonly used in metal coatings applications, particularly primers, and also find uses in adhesives, putties, sealants, cable jointing and electrical encapsulation.
