Incorez Introduces Water-Soluble Curing Agent

Incorez has announced plans to launch its latest product, a waterborne epoxy curing agent called Incorez 148/604, at the European Coatings Show 2011, to be held March 29-31 in Nuremberg, Germany .The company will announce product details, along with a series of case studies demonstrating the benefits of oxazolidine technology in various polyurethane coating applications and guide formulations.

Incorez 148/604 will help companies comply with the requirements of the VOC Solvents Emissions Directive, the main policy instrument for the reduction of industrial emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the European Union. The VOC Solvents Emissions Directive requires installations to comply either with the emission limit values set out in the directive or with the requirements of the so-called reduction scheme.

“Our new waterborne epoxy curing agent, Incorez 148/604, is a water-soluble polyamine curing agent that is APEO-, formaldehyde- and solvent-free, and so does not contribute to the VOC levels of the coating formulation,” said Charles Lynch, Commercial manager. “It is designed to produce very tough and durable, high-gloss water-based coatings with both liquid and solid epoxy resins. In particular, this hardener displays very good compatibility with neat bisphenol A-type liquid epoxies, such as Epikote 828, to provide excellent hardness and cure development.”
