„The age of Aquareous – Taking Waterborne Epoxies all the Way”

Linda Coppin, Hexion B.V. 14:20- 14:40, 2nd June 2020

The market for waterborne epoxy coatings is experiencing a unique “green wave” of change that started in China but is being felt around the world. The main driver for the enormous growth of waterborne coatings technologies is undoubtedly VOC reduction, and current epoxy binders allow formulated paints to meet the most stringent VOC legislation. Yet, many of today’s offerings still use considerable amounts of co-solvent. While conventional, co-solvent based waterborne epoxy technologies are becoming standard practice around the world, the next level of innovation will have to take the waterborne concept to its true meaning by completely removing co-solvents from binders and formulations.

Linda Coppin of Hexion B.V. will present a new co-solvent free waterborne epoxy system, EPI-REZTM 7723-W-53, that fulfils the highest requirements in metal and concrete protection, and discuss new challenges faced by developers and formulators in their quest for ultra-low VOC waterborne paints.
