- The commercial route involves a two step process starting with the reaction of dicyandiamide with ammonium salts.
- The presence of AMO has been confirmed on many substrates that are nitrogen inhibitors such as dicyandiamide, ammonium thiosulfate, and nitrapyrin.
- About 15 % of the samples had detectable levels of dihydro-1, 3, 5-triazine or a high dicyandiamide concentration.
- Various types of curing agents, used in FBE manufacture, include dicyandiamide, aromatic amines, aliphatic diamines, etc . The selected curing agent determines the nature of the final FBE product its cross linking density, chemical resistance, brittleness, flexibility etc . The ratio of epoxy resins and curing agents in a formulation is determined by their relative equivalent weights.
