Evonik is one of the leading suppliers of high-performance crosslinkers to the composite industry. Evonik crosslinkers play an important role in a majority of advanced composite applications.
VESTAMIN® IPD, a cycloaliphatic diamine, is regarded as the industry standard for crosslinkers and is formulated for epoxy composite systems.
The cycloaliphatic structure and medium reactive amino groups offer the following advantages:
good processability of the liquid matrix system
high-performance composites with high glass transition temperatures
high mechanical strength
improved mechanical properties
good temperature performance
resistance to impact stress
moisture and hot-water resistance
good chemical resistance.
Typical applications are fiber-reinforced composites for rotor blades, pipes, leaf springs, pump cases, high-performance boats, light airplanes, sporting goods, printed circuit boards, and housings for office machines.
