ABSTRACT: In many coatings applications, end-users have recognized that waterborne epoxy coatings perform equivalently to, and in some cases, even outperform solvent-borne epoxy polyamide coatings. These lower VOC coatings are based on globally- available waterborne epoxy binder systems. Three major drivers for development of new waterborne epoxy coatings have been lower cost, lower VOC and improved performance. This paper focuses on some of the newest products and innovations developed to help coatings formulators meet their customers’ needs for faster dry, improved flexibility, outstanding adhesion, long-term corrosion resistance and lower total solvent content.
