Published on 2012-05-11. Author : SpecialChem

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Momentive Specialty Chemicals, one of the world's leading producers of epoxy resins and hardeners, featured two new low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC), high performance epoxy technologies for concrete and metal coating applications at the American Coatings Show, May 8-10 in Indianapolis.

EPON™ Resin 896 and EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 3389 is a solvent-free epoxy system designed to offer low viscosity with superior resistance to a broad range of chemicals such as acids, even concentrated sulfuric and hydrochloric acid, alcohols, ketones, gasoline and brake fluid. Additionally, this system delivers overnight cure at temperatures down to 5°C.

EPIKOTE™ Resin 874L-X-90 and EPIKURE Curing Agent 3175 is a high solids epoxy system that offers superior performance at less than 250 g/L VOC. Compared to other high solids epoxy resins, EPIKOTE Resin 874L-X-90 provides lower solution viscosity and faster dry times. EPIKURE Curing Agent 3175 delivers better corrosion and chemical resistance than alternative high solids curing agents. Since it does not contain any benzyl alcohol or plasticizer, its long-term performance is excellent.
