Published on 2017-10-04. Author : SpecialChem

Hexion is showcasing its recently developed NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne System at ABRAFATI 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne System

Hexion Industrial Application
Hexion’s NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne System can be
used in Industrial maintenance coatings

  • The NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne system offers coatings performance comparable to solvent-borne systems
  • It meets stringent Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) regulations
  • The key to the new system is a novel, water-soluble amine curing agent called EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 8530-W-75
  • The solvent-free curing agent has a lower equivalent weight which means that formulators can use less to cure the same amount of epoxy resin
  • The curing agent, when combined with EPI-REZ™ Resin 7520-WD-52, delivers lower VOC, faster dry and good hardness development 
  • The NextGen Epoxy™ WB System can be used to formulate ultra-low VOC coatings (on concrete and on metal at less than 100 g/LVOC content)

Our NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne system offers a unique proprietary solution without the premium price often associated with high-performance waterborne epoxies,” said Ann Frederix, Senior Vice President, Epoxy Specialties.

Meeting Demands of Stringent VOC Regulations

To meet the demands of ever increasingly stringent VOC regulations, our epoxy resin technology continues to evolve to meet new and more demanding applications. Through a balance of performance and price, our waterborne, ultra-low VOC epoxy systems deliver a unique solution, such as improved product stability, superior freeze-thaw stability and an extended working pot life, to a wider range of coatings customers.

Recommended applications for Hexion’s NextGen Epoxy™ Waterborne System include:
  • Concrete coatings for floors and walls
  • Industrial maintenance coatings for metal
  • Agricultural & construction equipment coatings
  • Railway coatings
  • Coatings for metal automotive parts and accessories
