Water-based Coatings Technology
The advancements in Water-based Coating technology has created the opportunity to use these coatings in a broader variety of applications. These coatings are typically lower in VOC emissions and provide a safer environment for the people in your facility.
Water Reducible Alkyd
Alkyds are easier to apply and have the benefit of protective qualities. They can be formulated for spray, dip, and flow coat type applications, and can be cured by air dry, force dry, and baking cure systems. Additionally, Alkyds can be modified with other polymers for additional benefits. Alkyds are typically used for heavy equipment, containers, automotive, castings, and general metal fabrication.
Acrylic Emulsion Coatings are typically fast drying with protective qualities and a low VOC. They are formulated for spray, dip, and flow coat application and can be dried under air dry, force dry, and low bake conditions. Acrylic Emulsions are widely used in various markets such as structural primers, rail and transportation, along with various other general industrial applications.
2-Component Water-Reducible Epoxy Primers and Topcoats
2-Component Epoxy Primers are known for corrosion resistance and durability. They are spray applied type coatings and require mixing the two components prior to application. 2-K epoxies cure by cross-linking and dry by air dry or forced dried methods. They are typically used on heavy equipment and maintenance where added corrosion resistance is required.
Polyester High Solids Water-borne
Polyester High Solids water-borne offer flexibility as well as impact resistance and favorable gloss retention. They may be formulated for spray, dip, or roll coat applications that are cured by baking systems. Primarily found in metal furniture, lockers, and shelving industry, Polyesters are also used for coil coating applications.
Solvent-borne Coating Technology
In tough application environments, solvent-borne is typically the coating of choice. They provide durable finishes and are more forgiving to less than perfect surface preparation. With continued technological advancements in the various polymers, these coatings can be offered in lower VOC and higher solids at manageable application viscosities giving you a broader selection of coating choices.
Alkyds are easy to apply and have the benefit of protective qualities. Spray, dip, and flow coat application types are available. They can be modified with various polymers such as acrylics and phenolics to provide an extended array of properties. Alkyds can be cured by air dry, force dry and baking systems, and they are available in conventional solids as well as low VOC/High Solids formulas. These products are typically used for applications to heavy equipment, containers, automotive, castings, structural primers, and general fabricated metal components and parts.
Polyester High Solids
Polyester High Solids offer flexibility as well as impact resistance and gloss retention. They are typically applied by spray and electrostatic spray application and require a bake cure. Typical applications are metal furniture, lockers, fixtures, and shelving.
Single Component Epoxy-Esters
Single Component Epoxy-Esters provide enhanced corrosion resistance in an air dry or forced dry formula. Single Component Epoxy-Esters applications include fabrication metal products and transportation industries.
2-Component Urethane Topcoats & Epoxy Primers
2-Component Urethane & Epoxy Primers are known for corrosion and chemical resistance. These products are spray applied. They cure by cross-linking and will air dry but can be force dried. The Urethane Topcoats complete the system providing long-term protection with exceptional gloss retention. The markets that most commonly use these 2-Component systems are heavy equipment, chemical pumps and related equipment, oilfield/gas equipment, and other steel surfacing requiring a high level of corrosion resistance with coating longevity.
