Evonik expanded its curing agent portfolio with the UV-resistant Ancamine® 2880 for topcoat flooring applications.

The international specialty chemicals manufacturer Evonik has recently presented Ancamine® 2880, a new fast-curing and UV-resistant epoxy curing agent for topcoat flooring applications that offers excellent mechanical properties, abrasion resistance and colour stability throughout its service life.

The new modified cycloaliphatic epoxy curing agent from Evonik addresses current performance gaps of existing products, as it offers good balance of fast cure speed with strong carbamation, water-spotting and abrasion and chemical resistance, even under adverse conditions. It can also be cured at ambient and low temperature, while its rapid hardness development enables early walk-on floors.

In addition, Ancamine 2880 offers excellent aesthetics and possesses and enhanced EH&S profile, so it is then suitable for applications requiring excellent surface appearance – thanks to its low colour and high gloss – underscoring the commitment of the company in meeting the evolving needs of the global coatings industry by providing innovative solutions that satisfy the highest performances and environmental standards at the same time.

“Our customers need solutions that provide performance advantages and meet the latest labelling requirements, so we are excited to introduce our new high-performance curing agent in the Ancamine series to the market. Ancamine 2880 addresses the performance gaps found with existing available curing agents and its excellent EH&S profile make it a game-changer for the coatings market,” has declared Christian Schmidt, the head of the Crosslinkers business line at Evonik.
