Croda introduces B-Tough C2 epoxy functionalized toughening agent for epoxy coatings

September 22, 2011

Croda Coatings & Polymers has introduced B-Tough C2, an epoxy functional toughening agent for epoxy coatings for use in marine and protective heavy-duty coating applications such as flooring, cargo holds and storage tanks. It has always been a challenge for epoxy formulators to combine flexibility and hardness without impacting other required properties, the company said. Croda said its technology offers the solution with B-Tough C2 as it brings performance properties such as excellent impact resistance at lower temperatures; improved flexibility while maintaining hardness; low viscosity that makes it easy to handle and formulate; and it's non-migratory due to the epoxy functionality.
