SILIKOPON® :High-Solids 2-Pack Silicone-Epoxy Resin

Published on 2009-10-09. Author : SpecialChem

SILIKOPON® EF is a silicone-epoxy hybrid binder system for ultra-high solids formulations with extraordinary gloss and color retention, and excellent corrosion and weather resistance. It has an extremely low VOC-content and forms the basis for isocyanate-free, 2-pack air-drying anticorrosion coatings. Furthermore, it is highly resistant to chemicals and has a low dirt pick up (easy to clean).

Silicone-epoxy systems represent a novel technology for today's coatings formulator. The high crosslinking density associated with these coatings exhibit strong anti-corrosive characteristics. Due to the hydrophobic nature of the resin, silicone-epoxy coatings display antifouling and anti-icing properties.

Although the most common substrate for silicone-epoxy coatings has traditionally been metal, recent studies have shown benefit on wood, plastic, concrete and masonry substrates. SILIKOPON® EF can be formulated into a low VOC, corrosion and weather resistant coating. These systems exhibit excellent dirt pickup resistance and anti-graffiti properties. As you can see, SILIKOPON® EF allows the formulation of low VOC coatings without compromising properties associated with traditional higher VOC systems.
