NEW FROM HEXION: Hybrid Epoxy / Polysiloxane Resin

April 9th, 2018

EPOSIL™ Resin 5550 is Hexion’s newest innovation:
A Hybrid Epoxy /Polysiloxane Resin.

Wow! Now that’s what we call innovation! Protective coatings_hexion

Hexion has created a new hybrid epoxy /polysiloxane resin for isocyanate-free, protective coatings with superior performance and longer service life.

Topcoats based on EPOSIL™ Resin 5550 can reduce overall cost of ownership through improved durability and fewer coating layers. When combined with aminosilanes, this system yields an interpenetrating network that provides improved resistance to weathering and less dirt pick-up. Epoxy /Polysiloxane topcoats can be formulated for pipe-lines, bridges, offshore platforms or even amusement parks.  Specially formulated coatings can be developed for improved graffiti resistance or higher temperature coatings (< 600 °F).

When applied over a zinc-rich primer, topcoats based on EPOSIL Resin 5550 can eliminate the midcoat in traditional three-layer coatings systems, leading to reduced costs and time savings.
