Ancamine® curing agents fall into two major classes: modified aliphatic and cycloaliphatic polyamines.
Aliphatic polyamines are known for their high reactivity, fast cure at ambient or low temperature, and good color retention. Cycloaliphatic polyamines are known for their resistance to amine blush and waterspotting, excellent color and color stability, good adhesion, good film properties (e.g. excellent gloss), and cure under damp conditions. Evonik offers a wide range of modified aliphatic and cycloaliphatic curing agents with varying pot-life, viscosity, cure speed, and chemical resistance.
Ancamine curing agents are used across many different applications, including flooring, concrete repair, adhesives, chemically resistant linings and secondary containment, solvent-free and high- solids coatings, lay-up laminating, electrical encapsulation, and filament winding.
