New Epoxy Products
From Air Products
● Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. has
unveiled two epoxy products, Ancarez
AR460 waterborne epoxy resin and
Anquamine 701 curing agent. Both
present formulators with VOC-free
high performance options for varied
applications, according to the company.
Ancarez AR460 resin is a waterborne
liquid epoxy resin emulsion delivered
at 60% solids in water. Advantages of
Ancarez AR460 resin include VOC-free
content, low viscosity, small particle
size and nonionic stabilization, according
to the company. The product is also
pH neutral and features high gloss, dry
time and scrub resistance. It also
allows formulators more convenient
use ratios.
Anquamine 701 curative is a proprietary
curing agent, designed to offer a
solution to problems associated with
moisture vapor transmission in civil
engineering applications. Anquamine
701 curing agent is based on a polymeric
emulsion and has been developed
primarily for use with liquid epoxy
resins. It is capable of out-performing
solid resin emulsion-based systems by
offering the ability to formulate systems
with high film thickness, zero-
VOC and without emulsifiers, according
to the company. More info: Air
