Air Products (NYSE:APD) will launch several new products and feature the company’s waterborne and solvent-free epoxy and isocynate curing agents for use in coating and construction applications at this year’s American Coatings Show (ACS) in Atlanta, Ga., from April 8 to 10.
Based upon the industry success of Ancamine® 2280 and Ancamide® 2353 curing agents, Air Products developed Ancamine® 2764 and Ancamide® 2767 curatives as the next generation epoxy curing agents for industrial coatings and construction applications. These two new products are formulated to offer faster cure, reduced viscosity, and improved color and color stability.
Air Products’ long-standing experience in the area of high-performance epoxy curing agents for industrial maintenance applications has led to the development of Ancamine® 2748 and Ancamide® 2749 curatives, the company’s next generation curing agents for use in demanding, high chemical-resistant applications.
“Air Products offers an unmatched portfolio of curing agents engineered to withstand the toughest applications and environments,” said Bruce Thoet, Americas business manager for Air Products. “Our products can deliver the cost-in-use and high performance our customers demand.”
Ancamine® 2739 reactive amine curative for epoxy resins can provide excellent water-spot and blush resistance in adverse cure conditions while meeting even the most stringent regulatory and emissions requirements.
Amicure® IC-322 curative was developed to help cure aliphatic isocyanates to address customers’ needs for high-performance topcoats with satin or low-gloss appearance. Amicure IC-322 curative is Air Products’ third offering in its Polycarbamide flooring product line and builds upon the company’s Amicure® IC-221 and IC-321 curing agents features and benefits. Amicure IC-322 curative can deliver low gloss for seamless flooring applications while still providing fast cure and return to service, excellent UV stability, and durability.
