Huntsman Showcased Broad Portfolio at ChinaCoat 2017
This year, Huntsman impressed visitors with a diversity of products that deliver superior performance in terms of both functionality and sustainability. Huntsman Advanced Materials division showcased ARA® Cool -- low-temperature curing agents, as well as ARALDITE® and ARADUR® -- waterborne epoxy coating systems. Other chemistries under spotlight included Huntsman Performance Products division's world extensive range of polyetheramines -- JEFFAMINE® series polyetheramines.
With water-based and low-VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions coatings increasingly becoming industry-wide trends, the market witnesses rising competition through a growing number of eco-friendly products. As one of the well-acknowledged industry leaders, Huntsman not only offers solutions with high productivity, but also strikes the better balance of high performance and reduced environmental impact.

Two products in the JEFFAMINE® portfolio that were highlighted included JEFFAMINE® M series, which introduces hydrophilicity to epoxy backbone together with a reactive amine group. It provides a new, simpler emulsified method with excellent emulsion stability in different storage conditions that meets VOC compliance. The other product, JEFFAMINE® RFD-270, is a novel amine that offers a unique formulating option for coatings and adhesives. When used for epoxy resin curing, it has faster mechanical properties development than other PEA curatives.
