Applications

  1. High solid coatings with solvent free.
  2. Fast curing property makes ideal for applications requiring multiple coats over short period of time in marine and protective coatings.
  3. Works well as adhesive for different applications.
  4. Coating which require improved color stability with flexible film and extended pot life.

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.
