Preston, UK - Incorez has launched a new waterborne curing agent for self-levelling floors, which it claims offers an improved performance over existing products.
The manufacturer of specialist resins and polymers said Incorez 148/700 is specifically designed for formulation into systems that provide cost effective, highly functional floors without the need for plasticisers or solvents.
These systems have good compatibility with both polyurethane and epoxy topcoats whilst providing benefits such as low shrinkage, zero VOC, very low odour, good flow properties and a long pot life, Incorez said in a 1 Aug news release.
"We believe that Incorez 148/700 brings an edge to the current market and offers superior quality to what is available - not only that, it's more cost effective too," commented Ian Williams, Incorez marketing manager.
He added, "Some clever internal engineering of this new hardener ensures that self-leveller formulations exhibit low shrinkage, high adhesion and good breathability."
Incorez said other benefits include fast cure and early hardness development, good mechanical properties, and excellent resistance to a wide variety of commonly used chemicals and staining foodstuffs. The product can also be formulated into systems that comply with the German AgBB standards for emission free flooring.
