Adipic dihydrazide is used as a formaldehyde scavenger and reacts with formaldehyde, thereby preventing the volatilizing of formaldehyde in the air. It is also employed as a paint additive and coating additive. It is also used as an intermediate. Further, it is used for cross-linking water-based emulsions and as a hardener for certain epoxy resins, which finds application in powder coating.
