With the launch of ALBIDUR® 1223, Evonik has introduced to the market a product that ensures long-term coating flexibility. Used as a co-binder in anti-corrosion paints and coatings, the new product complements formulations based on Evonik’s SILIKOPON® EF and SILIKOPON® ED hybrid resins. By promoting long-term resistance to chemicals and UV light, ALBIDUR® 1223 offers coatings lasting protection against corrosion.
“Anti-corrosion coatings tend to become brittle as they age,” explains Kirstin Schulz, marketing director for industrial coatings. “ALBIDUR® 1223 makes these kinds of coatings more flexible over the long term. Plus, it doesn’t migrate, which keeps the chemical and UV resistance of the coating at a consistently high level.”
ALBIDUR® 1223 does not contain solvents, and it is not subject to labeling requirements. As a result, it is exceptionally easy to handle for shipping and storage. Even though ALBIDUR® 1223 is silicone-free, it is still highly compatible with SILIKOPON® EF and SILIKOPON® ED.
ALBIDUR® 1223 is registered and available worldwide. Because it keeps with the global trend toward NISO (non-isocyanate curing) products, the product also meets regulations already in place in Scandinavia.
