Epoxy curing agent as a NM sensitizer

I was looking for some NM sensitizers lately and i found that only 5% of diethylenetriamine or ethylenediamine can sensitize NM with very good results. Looking for those chemicals i found that they are used as a epoxy curing agent.

From wikipedia:
"Diethylenetriamine is a common curing agent for epoxy resins in epoxy adhesives and other thermosets."
"Like ethylenediamine, DETA can also be used to sensitize nitromethane, making a liquid explosive compound similar to PLX. This compound is cap sensitive with an explosive velocity of around 6200 m/s and is discussed in patent #3,713,915. "

It sounds really usefull and i think i will give it a try once. The broblem is that there are various epoxy curing agents that sometimes are not DETA or EDA
