Abstract

 

Methylcyclohexyl diamine (MCDA) is a cycloaliphatic diamine hardener developed as a curative for epoxy resin systems. The cure behavior, mechanical properties, and thermal properties were assessed and characterized to determine epoxy hardener behavior, using various analytic techniques, including scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), and rheology. Furthermore, application testing indicated that although structurally similar to other cycloaliphatic diamines, such as isophorone diamine (IPDA), MDCA is differentiated in terms of ambient and sub-ambient curing behavior. The characteristics of MCDA in comparison with other cycloaliphatic diamines will be discussed and is the subject of this paper / presentation. 

 

Biography

Irene Gorman graduated from Saint Norbert College in 2006 with a B.S. in Chemistry, and from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2012 with a Ph.D. in Polymer Science and Engineering.  During her Ph.D. she studied triazole-crosslinked networks in the Storey Research Group.  In 2012 Irene joined BASF, at the global headquarters in Ludwigshafen, Germany.  At BASF her work has focused on composite resin systems, epoxy crosslinking chemistry, synthesis of glycidyl ethers, and evaluation of novel amine-type hardeners.
