TOP COATS AND NON-YELLOWING SELF-LEVELERS
Cardolite’s products for top coats and non-yellowing self-levelers are very low in viscosity and color for use in all hues and shade paints. The low color technology is based on Cardolite’s proprietary process for Ultra LITE products.
Our curing agents provide excellent wetting and intercoat adhesion properties to various chemistries including epoxies and polyurethanes. Their fast hardness development ensures quick return-to-service, but with good pot life and friendly mix ratios for easier coating application. Differences in hardness development between CNSL based products and other chemistries becomes more evident at lower temperatures.
Moreover, coatings based on these curing agents deliver very good color retention and gloss stability in the presence of UV light for long-lasting beautiful floors.
Cardolite reactive and non-reactive diluents are suitable for use in top coats and self-levelers and enable low V.O.C. coatings without compromising performance. These products are hydrophobic in nature delivering excellent water resistance as well as chemical resistance due to the cardanol backbone. The cardanol, NX-2020 Series, also provides epoxy-amine cure acceleration and can be used as a replacement for nonyl phenol. Our reactive diluents are a label friendly alternative to other glycidyl ethers.
