Epoxies, by their makeup, have good chemical resistance to many solvents, acids and bases. Certain solvents and acids such as ketones and organic acids can be problematic for extended exposure. In these areas, it’s best to use a Mannic base type of curing agent that does not contain plasticizers. ED-122R is a Mannic base type curative incorporating a substituted Phenolic material and is plasticizer free. Its rapid cure properties require good handling and small batch mixers on the job site. Kitchen flooring beneath deep fryer equipment is a key area to use this special curative in the floor system.
