Carboset® CA-600 Acrylic Polymer Provides Blush-Resistance and Superior Weathering in Horizontal Masonry Coatings Applications

Published on 2008-06-04. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND, OH -- Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Inc., a subsidiary of The Lubrizol Corporation, has announced that its Carboset® CA-600 acrylic polymer enhances the performance and appearance of most any mineral-based, horizontal masonry surface. With patent pending technologies, Carboset CA-600 polymer provides excellent blush-resistance and superior weathering on driveways, sidewalks, patios, pavers, overlays, decorative concrete and garage floors.

Carboset CA-600 is a new water-based, 100-percent acrylic, self-crosslinking, nano-polymer emulsion. Developed for horizontal masonry clear, semi-transparent stain and opaque coatings, Carboset CA-600 can be formulated to less than 100 g/l VOC. Providing a unique combination of properties, coatings made with Carboset CA-600 are highly water-resistant, providing clear films and no blushing or discoloration under severe moisture conditions. Such coatings also provide color enhancement and gloss, resulting in attractive, non-yellowing finishes.

Masonry coatings made with Carboset CA-600 acrylic emulsion are also easier and faster to apply. With short dry times leading to rapid property development, Carboset CA-600 provides excellent early-water-resistance, reducing the concern for rain damage after application. When compared to many of the conventional solvent-borne systems in use today, Carboset CA-600- based coatings limit application restrictions due to odor and hazardous chemicals, helping to meet environmental compliance.

Carboset CA-600 can be used in clears, semi-transparent stains and fully pigmented systems. With wide formulating latitude, Carboset CA-600 can be applied wet-on-wet directly on cementitous substrates, over acid stains and/or over substrates previously treated with latex coatings and in both interior and exterior applications.
