AMI-CON now stock Crayamid 140!

AMI-CON PART NUMBER:  RESPASTMISA00000477

AMI-CON is proud to announce they have become a distributor of Crayamid 140.  This product has been extremely difficult to come by in the UK, but the great news is that AMI-CON has become a leading supplier.

PRODUCT INFORMATION:

CRAYAMID 140 is a medium viscosity liquid amino polyamide resin used in conjunction with epoxy resins to produce high build coatings and structural & laminating adhesives. It is used where the prime requirements are fast cure and flexibility. It is compatible with many synthetic resins, varnishes, oils and other media.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE :

The selection of a particular grade of epoxy will depend upon the end use of the product.  It is recommended that for high build coating it is always recommended to use low molecular weight Epoxy. In solvent based coatings medium molecular weight and unmodified liquid epoxy resins may be used, while for adhesive applications either the unmodified or modified liquid epoxy resins are recommended.   While the mixing ratio using CRAYAMID polyamides is not critical, optimum performance of the coating is achieved by stoichiometric mixing of the epoxy resin and CRAYAMID 140.
