Amino Resins

Amino resins are thermosetting resins with excellent tensile strength, hardness and impact resistance. DIC provides specialized amino resins for use as baking finish curing agents in coating and electronics materials. Amino resins produce coating films with improved hardness and solvent resistance when used in combination with alkyd resins, acrylic resins, polyester resins or epoxy ester resins.

DIC Amino Resins for Coatings

Amino resins are created by adding formaldehyde to amino compounds like melamine, benzoguanamine, or urea, then undergoing a condensation reaction and etherification with aliphatic monohydric alcohol. They are used as curing agents for thermosetting coatings.

Melamine Resin

  • Broad range of usage temperatures. Excellent weather resistance.

Benzoguanamine Resin

  • Excellent gloss, compatibility, workability, and adherability.

Urea Resin

  • Excellent mutual adherability, workability, and adherability.
