Cardolite® NC-558 Cardolite phenalkamide technology is a new category of epoxy curing agent that fills a gap between polyamide and phenalkamine technology. By chemically combining the two technologies, phenalkamide curing agents offer the benefits of both while mitigating their limitations.
Phenalkamide technology can be used in many applications where polyamide technology currently prevails to bring a new level of performance, reliability, application latitude, and cost savings. General protective coatings, for example, that require good color stability and long overcoatability can avoid having separate summer and winter versions by using a phenalkamide 15 based converter package. The overall system will have a fast cure, low temperature cure, and excellent corrosion protection without the need for tertiary amines or anticorrosive pigments. A single formula’s broader application latitude gives coating manufacturers protection from summer converter packages being used erroneously in low-temperature conditions, and simplifies finished product and raw material inventory management.
Features and Benefits:
- Universal coatings
- Formulation latitude
- No need for accelerators
- Remove or reduce anticorrosive pigments
- Cost savings
