Description and features

A micronized grade of dicyandiamide containing 1.5%-1.6% anti-blocking agent to inhibit clumping and improve handling. It is used as curing agent for epoxy resins.

Due to its high melting point Vicura DICY 100S does not melt during extrusion to produce a homogeneous mixture with the epoxy resin on a molecular scale. Therefore Vicura DICY 100S is supplied with low particle size assuring in this way acceptable homogeneity during the extrusion step, provided the premixing process is done properly. Outstanding features of epoxy powder coatings cured with Vicura DICY100S include excellent adhesion to metal, excellent chemical and solvent resistance, very high impact, abrasion and scratchy resistance, and dielectric properties that make them suitable for many electrical applications.
