EPIKURE 3164 | Hexion Curing Agent
Oligomeric Polyamine Curing Agent for Structural Applications
EPIKURE 3164 Curing Agent is a proprietary oligomeric polyamine curing agent for structural applications. Epoxy resins cured with EPIKURE 3164 Curing Agent can produce films, castings, or adhesive joints with a high degree of toughness and flexibility.
EPIKURE 3164 Curing Agent is a proprietary oligomeric polyamine curing agent designed for use with epoxy resins to produce films, castings or adhesive joints with a high degree of toughness and flexibility. It is supplied as a solvent-free liquid.
The superior toughness and flexibility provided by EPIKURE 3164 in comparison with standard “polyamide” curing agents such as EPIKURE 3125, as well as a selection of other curing agents for “flexible” or “toughened” epoxy systems, is apparent from a comparison of the tables available on the TDS. This toughness and flexibility is achievable over a wide stoichiometric range. Some chemical resistance data for systems cured with EPIKURE Curing Agent 3164 are also shown in the table on the TDS.
Benefits of EPIKURE 3164
- Imparts highly flexible properties
- Improved toughness compared to conventional polyamines
- Improved combinations of elongation, strength, modulus, abrasion resistance, and tear resistance in comparison with those given by other “flexibilizing” curing agents
- Strong low temperature properties of cured formulations
- Good adhesion to a variety of substrates
- Resistant to surface blush and amine exudates
- Useful as formulating tool in blending with other curing agents to impart desired properties
