3 Great Reasons Great Reasons To Be Excited About The Innovative Nextgen Epoxy™ Waterborne System
There are 3 great reasons to be excited about the innovative NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne System:
- This system offers coatings performance to your water-borne formulations comparable to solvent-borne systems
- It is ultra-low VOC (˂ 50g/L for concrete and ˂100 g/L for metal)
- It doesn’t have the premium price often associated with high-performance waterborne epoxies. Instead, it offers a unique balance of performance and price, making it more accessible to a wider range of coatings customers.
The key to this new system is a novel, water-soluble amine curing agent called Research Curing Agent RSC-4431. This solvent-free curing agent has a lower equivalent weight which means that you can use less to cure the same amount of epoxy resin. This curing agent, when combined with EPI-REZ™ Resin 7520-WD-52, delivers lower VOC, faster dry and good hardness development. This NextGen Epoxy™ WB System can be used to formulate ultra-low VOC coatings (on concrete at less than 50 g/L VOC content, and on metal at less than 100 g/L VOC content).
Recommended applications for this new waterborne system include concrete coatings for floors and walls; industrial maintenance coatings for metal; agricultural & construction equipment coatings; railway coatings; and coatings for Automotive parts and accessories.
In addition to lower VOC, the NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne System offers improved product stability, superior freeze-thaw stability and an extended working pot life of 5 to 6 hours, with superior gloss.
