Hexion will showcase a new hybrid epoxy/polysiloxane resin during the 2018 American Coatings Show that offers superior performance in protective coatings.

New Hybrid Epoxy/Polysiloxane Resin

Antigraffiti coatings
Recommended applications for Hexion’s
EPOSIL Resin 5550 include anti-graffiti coatings
  • When cross-linked with aminosilanes, topcoats that incorporate Hexion’s EPOSIL Resin 5550 offer excellent resistance to corrosion, higher service temperatures and anti-graffiti properties, while providing excellent gloss retention and lower yellowing
  • Hybrid epoxy/polysiloxane coatings offer superior durability and are a high performance alternative to traditional aliphatic polyurethane coatings that contain free isocyanate monomers

Since this technology has a successful history of use in protective coatings, EPOSIL Resin 5550 will help our customers to develop improved specialty coatings for high value applications,” said Dan Weinmann, Market Development Manager, Epoxy Specialties.

With the introduction of this new hybrid resin, Hexion offers our customers a viable route to the formulation of lower yellowing, isocyanate-free topcoats.

Recommended Applications

Recommended applications for Hexion’s EPOSIL Resin 5550 include:

  • Anti-graffiti coatings
  • Dry erase coatings
  • Higher temperature coatings (up to 600 °F; 315 °C)
  • Protective coatings for new construction such as airports, stadiums, bridges, piping and offshore platforms

In new construction, topcoats based on EPOSIL Resin 5550, when applied over a zinc-rich primer, can eliminate the midcoat in traditional three-layer coatings systems, leading to reduced costs and time savings.

Hexion will be present at Booth 2348 at the American Coatings Show, April 9-12, 2018.
