  • A complete portfolio of high-performance Araldite® waterborne epoxy resins and curing agents with ultimate corrosion performance
  • A complete portfolio of Aradur® Polyamidoamine Curing Agents with full range from standard up to highest performance products

As a leader in epoxy curing technology and polyurea technology, Huntsman Performance Products offers dedicated solutions for coatings, adhesives and composites, including specialty amines and carbonates.

  • JEFFAMINE® polyetheramines have a proven track record as epoxy curing agents.Tough yet flexible, they are the building block of choice for numereous epoxy applications.Providing low viscosity , low volatility and the ability to cure under ambient conditions, our epoxy curing agents can be used as resin co-reactants or crosslinkers in coatings, adhesives, casting systems and composites.
  • Huntsman cycloaliphatic amines are novelty curing agents and offer benefits when higher temperature and chemical resistance are required for coatings, floorings and composites
  • JEFFAMINE® SD amines are core ingredients to create controlled cure and catalyst-free polyurea coatings
  • JEFFLINK® chain extenders are used to create light-stable, aliphatic polyurea coatings
  • JEFFSOL® alkylene carbonates: an environmentally friendly, solvent-based technology that can replace toxic materials in paints, coatings, cleaners and paint-strippers.
