Invention Summary


Scientists at North Dakota State University have invented a Low-VOC, chromate-free, solventborne, low viscosity, highly flexible coating resin system. This resin system has the functionality of an epoxy resin while providing the performance of a polyurethane coating without exposing the end-user to isocyanates. When crosslinked with amines, these GC coatings have excellent adhesion, hardness, solvent resistance, gloss, and flexibility on cold-rolled steel and aluminum substrates. This polymer technology was specifically developed to be used to obtain highly flexible coatings while maintaining good solvent and chemical resistance.
