Adipic Acid Dihydrazide


Adipic dihydrazide (ADH) is a distinctive crosslinking agent and curative that provides controlled reactivity and performance improvements in epoxy resins, polyurethane dispersions (PUDs), solvent-based polyurethanes (PURs), and emulsion acrylic resins. ADH finds major applications as a latent curing agent for B-stageable epoxy resins and as an ambient temperature crosslinking agent for high-performance acrylic emulsion architectural coatings. Materials crosslinked or cured with ADH demonstrate excellent colour stability, weathering resistance, adhesion, durability, hardness, and toughness.


Adipic dihydrazide serves as a difunctional crosslinking agent in paints and coatings applied to specific water-based acrylic emulsions. Additionally, it acts as a hardener for epoxy resins and a chain extender for polyurethanes. Moreover, it finds a minor application as a formaldehyde scavenger, preventing the release of formaldehyde.


Adipic dihydrazide is used as a difunctional crosslinking agent in paints and coatings for certain water-based acrylic emulsions.  It is used as a hardener for epoxy resins and a chain extender for polyurethanes.  A small use is as a formaldehyde scavenger preventing the liberation of formaldehyde.
