Traditionally, formulators of water-based coatings for concrete had to choose between cost and performance, a function of available resin technology.
Ancarez™ AR550 resin is highly recommended for formulating water-based, ambient-cure coatings for concrete. This product—a dispersion delivered at 55% solids in water—offers handling and performance characteristics equal or superior to coatings based on existing epoxy resin dispersions technology. Product advantages include long pot life, fast dry speed, low resin viscosity, no induction time and quick recoatability, all at a lower cost in use and zero VOC. Ancarez AR550 resin can be cured with Anquamine® 401 curing agent for optimized performance.
