Cardolite Introduces New Products for Epoxy and Polyurethane Coatings at ACS

Cardolite offers low VOC products for coatings

American Coatings Show

Cardolite will be promoting new bio-based products for coatings at the American Coatings Show (ACS) in Indianapolis, IN on April 5-7. At this year’s ACS, Cardolite will be promoting new polyols, epoxy curing agents, diluents, epoxy modifiers and surfactants for polyurethane and epoxy coatings. These materials are bio-based, zero or low in VOC and offer excellent benefits to floor and anticorrosion coatings. For example, our epoxy curing agents provide fast cure even at low temperatures, outstanding corrosion protection, and excellent adhesion to poorly prepare substrates. Our polyols are very hydrophobic and deliver excellent hydrolytic stability, cathodic disbondment resistance and weatherability.

Our product lines include low viscosity waterborne, solvent-free and high solids materials that are easy to handle and apply. In addition, Cardolite’s products are based on Cashew Nutshell Liquid technology, an annually renewable source that does not interfere with the food chain.

Our technical team will be at the booth to help answer any inquiries related to our product lines and to provide formulation advice.  Please stop by booth 1752 to learn more about our renewable offering and how it can benefit your applications.

Cardolite will be presenting a poster titled “Sustainable Solvent Free Polyols for Low VOC High-performance Polyurethane Protective Coatings” at the American Coatings Conference. This poster will show latest studies of our bio-based polyols in typical low V.O.C (<250g/L) protective coatings and pipeline coatings (solvent-free). The results demonstrated that those bio-based polyols could provide excellent performance, such as: fast cure, good mechanical properties, excellent abrasion resistance, good chemical resistance, low moisture sensitivity, and excellent adhesion to metal substrates. Furthermore, long-term salt spray exposure and cathodic disbondment test results revealed that those bio-based polyols could deliver excellent anti-corrosion performances to protective coatings.
