Air Products To Feature Epoxy Curing Agents At ECS 2013

Stocks in this article: APD

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) will feature a number of waterborne and solvent-free epoxy curing agents as well as its new isocyanate curing agents, or polycarbamide technology, for use in a variety of coatings applications at next week's European Coatings Show (ECS) in Nuremberg, Germany.

Air Products' Amicure® IC-321 curative is an amine curing agent specifically engineered for use with standard HDI trimer isocyanates, resulting in polycarbamide or aliphatic polyurea coatings designed for industrial, commercial and institutional flooring systems. It is designed to deliver sufficient working time for squeegee application while providing very rapid return to service. Performance features include low-temperature cure, good abrasion/chemical resistance, low color, excellent UV durability and surface appearance and zero VOC. Amicure IC-321 curative allows for rapid hardness development with an extended working time.

At ECS, Air Products will also highlight its Total Reactive Technology with Ancamine ® 2712M and 2739, which represents the next generation of epoxy curing agents. They are modified polyamine curing agents that eliminate the need for a plasticizer without performance compromise. They are designed for use in polymer-based flooring systems.

Air Products will also feature its Anquamine® 721 and 735 waterborne epoxy curing agents, which are designed for use in waterborne epoxy coatings where cost-effectiveness and high performance are key. Anquamine 721 and 735 curing agents offer cost-in-use approaching conventional solvent formulations with low to zero VOC.

"These game changing epoxy curing agents provide innovative solutions for the coatings industry," said Cees Bartels, Europe epoxy marketing manager for Air Products. "Air Products continues to deliver the cost and performance solutions our customers demand with environmentally beneficial and sustainable new products."

Additionally, Air Products will feature its Ancamine® 2719 and 2734 curing agents, which offer chemical resistance and fast-return-to-service for industrial maintenance and protective coatings. The company is also introducing its Ancamide® 2652 curing agent for marine coatings that require corrosion resistance and a long overcoat window associated with a fast dry/cure.
