VERY FAST RECOATABILITY
Cardolite offers epoxy curing agents for primers, midcoats, top coats, and direct-to-metal coatings for year round applications. With a broad selection of chemistries and properties, Cardolite offers phenalkamine and phenalkamide curing agents that provide very fast sandability and are also suitable for quick recoat in wet-on-wet applications resulting in fast productivity. Recoat times as quick as 15 min can be achieved with standard formulations without causing dieback with polyurethane top coat.
Moreover, the NX-8101 Series waterborne curing agents deliver fast cure in conditions as low as 10°C and 80% relative humidity and excellent wet-on-wet properties.
Our line of cardanol diluents act as an accelerator to epoxy-amine reactions in addition to increasing hydrophobicity of the system and can be used as a replacement for nonyl phenol.
