Like other diamines or amines in general, it is a curing agent for epoxy resins. When used in coatings applications the higher cost compared to other amines is justified by the enhanced UV stability and thus lower yellowing tendency. In the production of advanced composite materials (engineering) its higher cost compared to other amines is less critical as performance is the key criteria. Cycloaliphatic amines such as IPDA also are known to have lower yellowing tendency than other amines and are thus used in coatings applications where this feature is important for aesthetics. Although it is not the only cycloaliphatic amine used in epoxy flooring, it has the largest use by volume. Other cycloaliphatic amines used in flooring include 1,3-BAC, MXDA, PACM and DCH-99.
