OBERHAUSEN, Germany – Following two years of successful cooperation, the global chemical company Oxea has extended its distribution partnership with the Dutch chemical distributor IMCD for its amines in Europe. Starting in April, the new contract will allow IMCD to distribute Oxea’s TCD in Europe. TCD diamine is used as a high-performance epoxy resin hardener in surface coating systems and specialty adhesives.

In a recent study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Bremen, Germany, TCD diamine has yielded very favorable results for epoxy-based adhesive technologies.
