EPIKOTE™ Resin 6520-WH-53A


EPIKOTE™ Resin 6520-WH-53A is a 53% solids, non-ionic aqueous dispersion of a modified EPIKOTE™ Resin 1001 type solid epoxy resin. This resin contains a low level of solvent (acetone and propylene glycol monomethyl ether) and is designed to provide the high performance of traditional epoxy coatings in low VOC, non-HAP waterborne coatings. Although EPIKOTE Resin 6520-WH-53A exhibits good compatibility with many water-reducible amine curing agents, it is designed for use with EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 6870-W-53.


EPIKOTE Resin 6520-WH-53A offers:  

  • Very low odor
  • Ultra low VOC
  • Mechanical stability – pigmented with high speed dispersers
  • Non-flammable/non-combustible (flash point > 200 °F) 

In combination with EPIKURE Curing Agent 6870-W-53 over a typical range of stoechiometry levels, this epoxy resin dispersion system delivers: 

  • Very fast dry and recoat times
  • No induction time
  • Visible end of pot life
  • Very good gloss and aesthetics
  • Very good corrosion and water resistance
  • Balanced overall performance properties
