Non-CMR Fast Epoxy Curative

Summary:

We are looking for a fast-acting, non-CMR (according to REACH/CLP) epoxy curatives.


Description:

We are looking for fast acting, non-CMR (according to REACH/CLP) epoxy curatives.  Due to greater hazard data generation the reclassification to CMR of a number of fast acting epoxy curatives has been seen in recent years.  This has especially affected the faster, low temperature activated curatives.  Alternative curratives are sought that are CMR (class 1 and 2) free and can react at speeds of <10mins with a standard Bisphenol A Epoxy resin.  Although typically amine functional substances have filled this role, we are open to alternative chemistries as well as traditional amine curatives.
