EPIKURE 3155 | Hexion Curing Agent
Low Viscosity, Modified Polyamide Epoxy Curing Agent, Based on Dimerized Fatty Acid and Polyamines
EPIKURE 3155 Curing Agent is a low viscosity, modified polyamide epoxy curing agent, based on dimerized fatty acid and polyamines. The low viscosity of EPIKURE 3155 allows the formulation of products with high levels of pigmentation and use of little or no solvent, depending on end use application. It is well-suited for use in higher solids coating formulations where low volatile organic content (VOC) compliance is required.
EPIKURE 3155 Application Areas/Suggested Uses
