Epoxy aromatic amine MDA free for pipes

Hi,

I´m working in a company that produces filament wound anhydride epoxy-fiberglass pipes. I have to develop a line with aromatic amine epoxy.

For occupational safety issues I seek out a epoxy system MDA free.

Could you help me?

There are aliphatic amines, like DETA, that can be used as the curing agent/hardener for epoxy resins.

Hi CoryPad,

the pipes have a long-term hydrostatic strength requirements (water and temperature). Aliphatic and cycloaliphatic amines systems do not perform as well as aromatic amines

RE: Epoxy aromatic amine MDA free for pipes

So you want to use an aromatic amine hardener, but not MDA? I would contact Dow and Huntsman for suitable products.
