Why Epoxy Hardeners Are Better Than Polyamide Resins?

Epoxy hardeners are designed employing Cardenol (Mannich base) hardeners. They are highly beneficial to use than Polyamide resins due to the following factors:

  • Low temperature and rapid cure at very high level of humidity
  • Excellent water and corrosion resistant feature
  • Matchless acid, solvent, alkali, as well as chemical resistance
  • Adhesion feature to damp surfaces
  • Low relative viscosity, hence can be developed at very high solids
