July 7, 2016
By Business Wire News

ROCK HILL, S.C.

Gabriel Performance Products (Gabriel), a market leader in epoxy additives and specialty chemical manufacturing, has expanded their sales team to support development and growth of the Versamid® product family. Versamid includes various liquid epoxy curing agents, including reactive polyamides (modified and unmodified), amidoamines and selected modified amine curing agents.

“The Versamid product family is a key brand in Gabriel’s strategy to expand our specialty proprietary product offering within the coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers markets,” said Gabriel Performance Products’ Vice President of Sales, Marianne Riemer. “We expanded our sales team to help drive the growth of Gabriel, with the initial focus on the Versamid brand.”

Tim Kenworthy, Kristie Hammontree and Tara Dean joined Gabriel’s sales team during the past month. Their initial focus is on the Versamid products, but each will assume selected responsibilities for Gabriel’s other products: Capcure® and Gabepro® polymeric mercaptans, Phenoxy PK™ resins and Fluorolube® specialty lubricants.

Riemer adds, “I am happy to announce that all Versamid products have been commercially produced, and are available for sampling and order fulfillment.” Gabriel recently acquired all remaining stock of product previously produced by BASF, and these products are available for purchase until supplies are exhausted. Please contact Tim Kenworthy at tim.kenworthy@gabrielchem.com for details about the products and quantities still available.

Versamid liquid polyamide resins offer unique combinations of hardness and flexibility along with the highest chemical and solvent resistance of the dimer-based polyamide resin series. Versamid cured epoxy resin systems are recommended for applications such as:

  • Joint sealants
  • NSF potable water coatings
  • Patching compounds
  • Maintenance coating applications
  • Primers
  • High solids enamel paint formulations
