VIJ 2062 is low viscosity, adducted Phenalkamine curing agent designed for medium and high solids epoxy coating application. This curing agent has very fast cure even at very low temperature, and can provide excellent adhesion on difficult substrates, such as an inorganic zinc primer and degreased galvanized steel, film quality of coating using this curing agent is excellent, showing no blush even at low temperature and high humidity. It has excellent combination of fast cure with good pot life. Color stability is good.

Stability and Storage
Phenalkamine may absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide when left in open container, which could result in increased viscosity, discoloration, reduction of reactivity, and/or crystallization of the products. This products should be kept tightly sealed in their in original container when not in use, and store in a cold, dry place. Expiry of the products is six months from the date of manufacture.
