  • Publication number: 20200079965
    Abstract: Methods of making a two-component composition that can be applied to a substrate and cured to provide a coating that demonstrates minimal solvent pop at the dry film thickness limit of the coating are provided. A cured coating made from the two-component composition demonstrates minimal solvent pop, minimal air entrapment, and optimal dry spray and overspray acceptance.

  • Publication number: 20180142103
    Abstract: The present invention provides a water-based coating system that can be used to form durable, abrasion resistant, corrosion resistant, protective barriers on a wide range of substrates. The coating system is particularly effective for protecting metal-containing substrates, such as intermodal cargo containers, against corrosion. As an overview, the present invention provides water-based primer compositions suitable to form primer coats and topcoats on substrates. Desirably, the primer incorporates one or more chlorinated resins for excellent corrosion protection. These polymers not only provide excellent corrosion protection and but also show excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrate materials. The system also includes topcoat compositions enhance compatibility and adhesion to the primer and to provide enhanced application.

  • Publication number: 20180066146
    Abstract: A one-part, storage-stable, air-dryable, latex-coatable waterborne film-forming coating composition has dispersed therein sufficient conductive material to provide an autoweldable hardened shop primer layer when applied to metal components. The thus-primed components may be welded together using automated arc welding equipment without having to remove the coating composition at the weld site. The conductive material desirably causes little or no airborne emission of unsafe quantities of heavy metals or other harmful substances when the primer is volatilized or combusted during welding.
