Ancamine® curing agents fall into two major classes: modified aliphatic and cycloaliphatic polyamines.

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, and solvent-free and high- solids coatings.

Epoxy-based construction products are widely used due to broad range of performance and application characteristics can be obtained with epoxy technology, including the following:

  • High strength and dimensional stability
  • Good adhesion to concrete
  • Ability to be formulated to 100% solids
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • Good intercoat adhesion
  • Low/No VOC or emissions
  • Good cure under cold, damp conditions
  • Low cure shrinkage
