HARTCURE MED, 4,4'-Methylenebis(2-ethyl-6-methylaniline) / MMEA, CAS number 19900-72-2, is used as a chain extender for polyurethane elastomers and as a curing agent for epoxy resin to improve the mechanical and dynamic properties of products. MED can also be used as a leading compound for polyimides and as an intermediation for organic synthesis.
Well-suited for casting polyurethane (CPU), thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), RIM elastomers and spray polyurea in the polyurethane field. MED is also applicable for the processing, prepreg and chemical anticorrosive coatings in the epoxy resin field. MED is used in the synthesis of prepolymers, including polyether and polyester.
MED is an ideal solution for finished products demanding light color and anti-aging. MED can be applied with other amine-type curing agents (compound) to meet better physical properties.
MED and MOCA are both amine-type curing agents. However, MED is eco-friendly and less-polluted in comparison of MOCA. MED can also replace MBOEA and HQEE on PU products, no matter CPU (casting polyurethane) or TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane). Same as MOCA, MED-type elastomers feature with excellent heat-resistance demanding on working over 120℃.

MED/MMEA is an aromatic diamine chain extender and curing agent. Due to strict regulations on using MOCA, the eco-friendly, non-polluted MED is another ideal choice applying on a variety of applications. MED-base polyurethanes are versatility and design freedom, with high strength properties while retaining its elasticity. The MED-type finished products are durable and resistant which enables them are well-suited for demanding applications, such as bumper pads, casters, rollers, forklift tires, machine components and so on. Furthermore, MED can be also applied as a bridge agent on semi-conductor and as a curing agent on epoxy and polyurea.
