New epoxy curing agent with excellent atlas cell results from Air Products
Today’s petrochemical market provides new challenges to coatings manufacturers. Changes in the location, type, methods of drilling are resulting in higher temperatures and pressures that new coatings must withstand. Additionally, as the composition of the crude changes, chemical resistance becomes ever more important.
Ancamine® 2791 curing agent from Air Products provide a solution to today’s challenges. This new low viscosity epoxy curing agent is designed to be used with standard liquid epoxy resin (LER) for normal conditions and with Novolac/Bis-F resins for harsher conditions and perform equally well.
- High temperature service
- High chemical resistance
- Crystallization-resistant at lower temperatures
- Excellent Atlas cell test performance

Anquamine® 725 curing agent
The Single Products Alternative: Short Recoat Primer and Topcoat
As the flooring industry continues to look for ways to reduce time on the job and to improve safety, Air Products continues to innovate and bring new alternatives to the industry.
Anquamine 725 is a waterborne curing agent optimized for use in concrete flooring systems. This curing agent offers everything formulators need to create successful and long-lasting flooring systems. Developed primarily for use with liquid epoxy resins, Anquamine 725 is a short recoat time primer and can be used as a topcoat – enabling one curing agent for both coats.
- Fast return to service
- Outstanding blush resistance
- Can be used as a promer or topcoat
- Ultra low emission technology
- Waterborne technology easy to apply and clean up

We are pleased to share the article, “Encouraging Innovation: Environmental Regulations Drive Epoxy Formulation”, that appeared in the April 2015 Journal of Protective Coatings and Linings by Air Products’ own, Marcelo Rufo.
In this article, Marcelo explains the different definitions of VOC’s and presents novel epoxy curing agents to address the challenge of today’s VOC regulations without sacrificing performance.
In addition to the conventional approach to reducing VOC’s through the use of waterborne technologies, Air Products offers the following game-changing solutions that eliminate fugitive plasticizers to the market, as referenced in the article.
