Paints and Coatings

INVISTA DYTEK® Amines are widely used in a variety of paint and coating applications, including thermoplastic polyamide powder coatings, waterborne polyurethane systems, and epoxy coatings for industrial maintenance, civil engineering, chemically resistant systems, and decorative treatments. In polyamide powder coatings, DYTEK® A amine is utilized as a critical monomer in the design of the polyamide resin backbone while several of the diamines, including DYTEK® A amine and DYTEK® HMD, are used as their isocyanates in the formulation of polyurethane coating systems. Cross-linking or curing of epoxy coatings systems is a major use for DYTEK® DCH-99 amine as well as DYTEK® A amine.
