Cytec Introduces BECKOPOX™ EP 2384w/57WA -Innovative Epoxy Dispersion for Two-Component Protective Coating Systems

Published on 2010-07-14. Author : SpecialChem

WOODLAND PARK, NJ -- Cytec Industries Inc. announced the launch of BECKOPOX™ EP 2384w/57WA - a new solvent-free waterborne epoxy dispersion.

This highly advanced product is designed for high performance waterborne ambient cure two-component epoxy monocoats and primers for metallic substrates. BECKOPOX EP 2384w/57WA, when used with BECKOPOX VEH 2188w/80WA waterborne amine hardener, enables customers to formulate below 50g/L VOC, while exceeding 1000 hours salt-fog without the need for anti-corrosion pigments. Furthermore, coatings are fast drying and hard. These additional benefits provide early handling, fast top coating and early water resistance.

"BECKOPOX EP 2384w/57WA clearly outperforms other waterborne epoxy dispersions, while maintaining very low VOC, especially in corrosion and water resistance. With this product we have developed a solution which is well suited for factory applied coatings as well as field applied protective coatings," says Dr. Leila Khatai, Technical Service & Development Leader for Cytec Liquid Coating Resins. "BECKOPOX EP 2384w/57WA is a great example that underlines Cytec's commitment to pioneering sustainable change through the development of low-VOC coatings along with advancing performance beyond traditional offerings."
