Epoxy systems are predominantly used for corrosion protection and construction. The excellent adhesion to metallic and mineral substrates allows a wide range of applications. Epoxy systems are the first choice for many applications where adhesion and mechanical strength combined with high elasticity are needed. Thereby the hardener significantly determines the properties of the cured coating.
Water-based, self-emulsifying hardeners for liquid epoxy resins and solid resin emulsions are characterised by very fast physical drying, long processing times and very good adhesion properties to metals and mineral substrates. From an occupational health point of view, aqueous systems are to be preferred to all other epoxy systems and should therefore be used wherever technically possible.
