Hexion at ECS 2015: Launched EPI-REZ Resin 7520-WD-52, a Waterborne Epoxy Resin for Coatings

Published on 2015-04-24. Author :

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Hexion unveiled a new epoxy resin dispersion that closes the cost versus performance gap between waterborne and solvent-borne technologies at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Germany. EPI-REZ™ Resin 7520-WD-52 has been shown, in product testing, to deliver corrosion resistance and substrate adhesion comparable to solvent-borne epoxy coatings used in transportation and industrial application.

"This next-generation product provides a new, value-engineered option for our industrial epoxy coatings customers who are looking for a more environmentally-preferred, high performance, waterborne resin platform," said Callum Scott, EMEA Regional Segment Leader. "For current waterborne epoxy resin users, EPI-REZ Resin 7520-WD-52 reduces the need to blend epoxy dispersions to achieve the desired balance of price and performance."

Additionally, EPI-REZ Resin 7520-WD-52 offers a shelf life of more than 12 months, which is longer than many competitive waterborne epoxy dispersions. Applications for the product include primers, mid-coats and direct-to-metal coatings for agricultural and construction equipment, for trucks and buses, or for shop-based industrial finishes.
Hexion’s Coatings Research and Development Manager, Francoise Heine, presented a technical paper on this new development in waterborne epoxy technology on April 21 at the Coatings Congress.
