Major Products EPS 2799
An excellent choice for high performance gloss interior and exterior architectural DIY or professional paints. This 100% acrylic film-forming polymer offers early high temperature block resistance; print resistance; fast hardness development; low-tack, even in near zero VOC formulations, and resistance to dirt pickup.
Enhance the performance characteristics of roof coatings with EPS 2719, an innovative acrylic emulsion designed to eliminate asphalt bleed-through in cool roof coatings, while maintaining flexibility and toughness. Roof coatings based on EPS 2719 also offer UV and dirt pickup resistance, as well as excellent adhesion to asphaltic and other common construction substrates.
Formulate coatings at <100g/L VOC with EPS 2570, a selfcrosslinking, styrenated acrylic emulsion offering excellent gloss, corrosion and chemical resistance, as well as early water resistance and rapid hardness development.
NovoColor ® HP II 8600
The next generation of waterborne pigment dispersions specifically engineered for use in architectural and waterborne industrial coatings systems to help customers meet stringent VOC restrictions. NovoColor ® HP II 8600 was recently awarded the UL GREENGUARD Gold Certification by UL Environment’s GREENGUARD Certification Program.
