Main benefits

Fine tune reactivity and flexibility

Cure speed evolves proportionally to functionality, with the exception of MCure® 206. MCure® 206 is as reactive as a trifunctional MCure® whilst enabling more efficient viscosity reduction. MCure® products give viscosity control without property loss.
Compared to DGEBA epoxy, MCure® reactive diluents provide higher elongation and impact resistance, to enhance the mechanical properties of your resin.

Reduce amine blush

 

 

At the surface, the amine reacts with CO2 and moisture to form carbamate salts. Consequence is a failed coating with a waxy finish, water spotting and delamination.
MCure® products help prevent and reduce amine blush, for longer-lasting coatings.

A preferable alternative to glycidyl ethers

MCure® products are time-efficient alternatives to glycidyl ethers, traditionally used in bi-component epoxy/amine systems.

 

Compared to glycidyl ethers, MCure® demonstrate:

  • Lower exotherm
  • Faster cure
  • Low shrinkage
