AQUAREOUS™ Epoxy Resin Systems

Preserve and protect the future by lowering VOC emissions towards zero

The European commission aims to reduce the direct and indirect effects of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on the environment and improve human health by establishing emission limits and by regulating the operating conditions for installations that use organic solvents.1

Solvent emissions play a significant role in the formation of ozone and fine particulates in the atmosphere that can trigger health issues. To protect the global environment and improve human health, the coatings market needs waterborne epoxy systems without any added cosolvents.   

For forty years, Hexion’s goal has been to provide you with improved waterborne epoxy systems that reduce solvent emissions, ultimately improving your plant operations and your health.

Eliminate co-solvents from paints

AQUAREOUS™ epoxy systems from Hexion have proven to reduce the VOC levels of the coatings by up to 100% (from 100 g/L down to 0 g/L) while still providing the superior performance of standard solvent-borne epoxy coatings.
