Huntsman Introduces New, Fast Curing Polyetheramines For Epoxy Curatives

Published on 2005-07-20. Author : SpecialChem

THE WOOD LANDS,TX -- Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) announced the launch of its new, fast curing polyetheramine, JEFFAMINE® XTJ-590 amine. XTJ-590 provides a cure speed that is approximately four times faster than Huntsman's popular JEFFAMINE® D-230 product. It can be used alone or blended with standard polyetheramines for epoxy curing, polyamide preparation or applications requiring high purity reactive diamines.

"With XTJ-590, we are addressing a technical need in the epoxy curatives market by providing a curative with fast cure, flexibility, and low color," says Alan Pekarik, Performance Specialties Market Manager for North America. "XTJ-590 is a relatively low molecular weight, reactive polyether diamine. As an epoxy curing agent it provides moderately rapid cures, and epoxy systems with good mechanical properties, excellent impact and thermal shock resistance."
