With growing concerns of environment and due to strengthening the government regulations on volatile organic compounds(VOC) the coatings industries are developing new technologies to reduce the amount of VOC released from coatings. In this study. a water soluble curing agent of amino-epoxy adduct was synthesized and its structure was identified by FT-IR, GPC and TG/DTA. The mechanical properties of the new curing agent in combination of KER-828 and KER-500 were investigated respectively. As an experimental result, the drying time of KER-828 was faster than that of KER-500 but the adhesion and impact strength of KER-500 was better than that of KER-828.
