CURADRIDE epoxy curing agents consist of a variety of speciality and modified anhydrides that have achieved widespread commercial importance due to a combination of their cure characteristics with relatively low viscosity and high loading and long pot-life with low exotherm.
Several of the products offered have been formulated with proprietary modification which may include acceleration although we also offer several un-modified grades that can be used in conjunction with some of our CURACAT cure catalysts and accelerators. Cures are inevitably at elevated temperatures and to optimise properties require long post cure schedules.
Cured components offer good mechanical and excellent electrical insulation properties. These properties are retained even under moderate to high continuous operating temperatures due to the good thermal stability and find extensive use in the heavy electrical industry
