Pugh & Co. International has launched two new waterborne amine adduct hardeners for use with epoxy resins as surface treatments/primers on steel and other metals. Actan DU15 and DU20 are advanced formulations that show significant improvements in wet adhesion and can be over coated after two hours at ambient temperature, according to the company. The two products are 100% water-based formulations that allow for VOC free coating systems which will ensure more than compliance with both EC Directives and U.S. environmental legislation. Actan DU15 and DU20 are amine adducts with relative high H-equivalent weight in aqueous emulsion. They show good reactivity with liquid and solid epoxy resins. The resulting films are tough, hard and flexible with good water resistance and outstanding wet adhesion to metallic substrates.
