Epoxy and Phenolic Resin Systems and Versatic™ Monomers for Can, Coil and Industrial Coatings

Our epoxy resins for metal coatings can be used to formulate one-component, liquid baking systems that can resist the most aggressive media and demanding sterilization processes. These systems have a long, successful history of use in the packaging industry and can be combined with a variety of crosslinking materials (phenolics, melamines, urea-formaldehyde resins, etc.) to protect, preserve, and decorate both external and internal packaging surfaces. Features include:

  • Fast cure
  • Excellent flexibility
  • Outstanding adhesion
  • Exceptional resistance to chemicals and solvents
  • Ease of handling through various available solvent cuts
  • Waterborne epoxy options are available
  • Bakelite® phenolic resin crosslinkers can be added to enhance adhesion and corrosion protection

Hexion also offers a broad range of innovative, ultra-low emitting Bakelite phenolic resins for metal food packaging and industrial coatings. These special cross-linking resins allow manufacturers to include higher proportions of phenolic resins in their BPA-NI formulations for greater formulation flexibility, toughness and corrosion resistance.

Specific market applications for our phenolic and epoxy resins include:

  • Aerosol & Specialty Can Coatings (e.g. metal tubes)
  • Cap & Closure Coatings
  • Beverage Can Bodies & Ends
  • Drum & Pail Coatings
  • Food Can Coatings
  • Industrial packaging

For food packaging applications, whether direct or indirect, it is important to consult the appropriate regulations, including for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, to determine the suitability of substances. A Hexion bulletin outlines more specific details about our epoxy resin and curing agent products for the United States market.

Cardura™ E10P glycidyl ester and VeoVa™ vinyl ester enhance coating performance in numerous industrial applications.

  • Coil and Can coatings—low viscosity for thin, high gloss coatings
  • General Industrial coatings—adhesion to substrates, solvent resistance, enabling 1K solutions
