CFCM Evonik 090010 400Evonik recently launched a new heat-stable hardener that ensures coatings cure at room temperature.

The TEGO Cure 100 hardener is heat-stable up to 650 deg C. and "eliminates the need for costly and energy-intensive drying in the oven."

"Our new hardener meets the ever-increasing regulatory requirements," said Maximilian Morin, Head of the Industrial & Transportation Coatings Market Segment. "We are convinced that the new hardener will be a future-proof component in our customers' formulations."

The hardener is also reportedly suitable for silicone resins, developed for direct-to-metal coatings and surfaces continuously exposed to high temperatures, such as ovens, pipes or machines that get very hot during operation.

According to Evonik, the hardener is resistant to corrosion, chemicals and weathering. It has a high solids content of more than 99 percent, reducing solvent emissions. Evonik reports that TEGO Cure 100 is easy to handle and has a wide processing window, allowing it to be stable in storage over a long period of time.

PPG Receives EPA Registration for COPPER ARMOR Paint Powered by Corning Guardiant Technology

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
