NX-8402 Curing Agent Benefits and Applications
NX-8402 is a new waterborne curing agent for epoxy coatings and adhesives. This epoxy hardener does not contain any solvent and does not require co-solvents to properly form a film. Since this epoxy curing agent is supplied as an emulsion, it can be easily diluted in water as is and after mixing with epoxy resins. As a result, NX-8402 enables zero and low VOC formulations that also meet the requirements of many industrial applications. Moreover, NX-8402 is compatible with various epoxy dispersion resins, including standard liquid epoxy. The good handling properties of NX-8402 give formulators latitude to work.
Excellent Performance in Floor and Anticorrosion Coatings
NX-8402 provides fast cure speed and hardness development in combination with both dispersions and LER. Water-based coatings formulated with NX-8402 are therefore, suitable for projects requiring quick return-to-service. Additionally, NX-8402-based epoxy coatings showed excellent salt spray performance on metal substrates like cold rolled steel even at low film thickness. Primers based on NX-8402 have also passed a harsh condensation test typically performed in the container coatings industry.
Based on the combined properties of NX-8402, this curing agent is recommended for anticorrosion metal coatings and concrete floor coatings. NX-8402 technical data sheet and safety data sheets are available through our Waterborne Curing Agents page.
