Epoxy Curing Agents

MegaChem (UK) Ltd is able to offer a comprehensive range of epoxy curing agents to suit a wide variety of applications. Many of these products are stocked in the UK and are available for standard or express delivery. TDS, SDS and samples will be made available on request.

We can provide technical advice and can supply the products in bulk or smaller amounts if required.

Applications and Uses:

Thanks to the huge variety of properties derived from the epoxy system (selected Epoxy Resin  and curing agent) there is a wide field of applications in which they are used;

  • Inks to Adhesives and from Powdercoat to Roadmarking.
  • Industrial Paints and Coatings,  such as flooring paints or metal paints, often include an Epoxy Resin element to add to the chemical or physical resilience of the finished coat.
  • Composites can be produced with varying structural properties and Plastics can be modified using Epoxy Resins, as can Construction materials. These modifications offer improved performance from lighter weight products, delivering huge benefits to industry. The flexibility in finished properties combined with the continued development of new grades has brought with it an ever increasing breadth of applications for this established polymer system.

These are just a few of the applications that we can help you with, if you can’t see what you are looking for, please call us on + 44 (0) 1291 422747 and one of our technical team can help you.

What are Epoxy Curing Agents?

There is a wide range of epoxy curing agents, which offer an even wider range of properties to the cured epoxy system. From aliphatic and cyclo-aliphatic amines to polyamide systems, all available in simple forms or with modification, and from imidazole based to mercaptan or mannich based systems. There are accelerators available to further enhance curing rates and there are also water based systems which offer lower VOC levels and improved environmental options. By choosing the correct Epoxy Resin and curing agent or mix of curing agents, users are able to control pot-life, cure speed, adhesive properties, water and chemical resistance as well as finished appearance of the cured epoxy system. Flexibility can be modified, as can permeability and UV resistance of the finished product.
