Hexion to launch its latest high-performance epoxy dispersion and hybrid epoxy/polysiloxane resin at ABRAFATI

Hexion Inc. (“Hexion” or the “Company”) continues to gain traction with its newly released coatings products. The Company will launch its latest high-performance epoxy dispersion, EPI-REZ™ Resin 7720-W-50 and a hybrid epoxy/polysiloxane resin, EPOSIL™ Resin 5550, in the Latin American market at the ABRAFATI trade show from Oct. 1-3 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

When combined with EPIKURE™ Curing Agent 6870-W-53, EPI-REZ™ Resin 7720-W-50 offers performance comparable to solvent-borne systems at less than 50 grams/liter of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Ann Frederix, Senior Vice President, Epoxy Specialties notes,

“Conversion from traditional epoxy systems to waterborne epoxies does not mean you need to sacrifice performance because this new epoxy dispersion provides improved ease of formulation, superior adhesion to concrete or metal and excellent corrosion resistance. We’re excited to bring this coating product to a new market.”

When cross-linked with aminosilanes, topcoats that incorporate Hexion’s EPOSIL™ Resin 5550 offer excellent resistance to corrosion, higher service temperatures and anti-graffiti properties, while providing excellent gloss retention and lower yellowing. Hybrid epoxy/polysiloxane coatings offer superior durability and are a high-performance alternative to traditional aliphatic polyurethane coatings that contain free isocyanate monomers.

“With the introduction of this new hybrid resin, Hexion offers our customers a viable route to the formulation of lower yellowing, isocyanate-free topcoats,” said Dan Weinmann, Market Development Manager, Epoxy Specialties. “We’ve seen traction with this product in the United States and we’re excited to see the reaction to it in a new market.”

Hexion’s Mauro Silva, Technical Account Manager, will present the “New Epoxy-Polysiloxane Hybrid Resin for Isocyanate-Free, Graffiti Resistant Topcoats” on October 1st, at 2:30 p.m. (BRT); as well as, “The Evolution of waterborne 2K Epoxy Systems” on October 2nd, at 2:30 p.m. (BRT).  To learn more about these new products, visit Hexion at Booth 77 at ABRAFATI or log onto
