EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 8537-WY-60

Description

EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 8537-WY-60 is a water reducible amine adduct supplied at 60 percent solids in water. When combined with suitable epoxy resins, waterborne coatings may be formulated to meet a variety of end use requirements.

Application

For spray applications, additional reduction with water may be desired, although it is not necessary because of the excellent atomization properties of these coatings. Reasonably high film build coatings may be achieved with spray application. A finishing system providing a final film build averaging 7 mils would consist of a primer (2.5 mils), an intermediate coat (3.0 mils) and a gloss enamel (1.5 mils), all based on EPIKURE Curing Agent 8537-WY-60.

Benefits

  • Low VOC coatings
  • Water cleanup
  • Overnight recoat
  • Resistance to flash rusting
  • Solvent resistance comparable to solvent based epoxy systems
  • Good color
  • Excellent sealing over fresh concrete and damp masonry
  • Acceptance of universal machine colorants
  • Seals wood surfaces without raising nap
  • Bridging of voids and freedom from mud cracking in block fill coatings
  • No bleed-through over asphaltic surfaces
  • Excellent film properties at low temperature bakes
  • Early resistance to wash-off and water spotting
  • Adhesion to various substrates:
    • Untreated and treated cold-rolled steel
    • Electrolytic and hot dip galvanized metal
    • Aluminum
    • Aged alkyd and epoxy enamel films
