RHOPLEX™ WL-81 Emulsion

An acrylic copolymer specifically designed for the formulation of clear and pigmented ambient or forced-air-dry industrial lacquers. Coating systems based on this polymer are suitable for use on a variety of substrates and offer a number of key benefits currently provided by solvent-borne industrial lacquers.


  • General Industrial Finishes for wood, metal and plastic
  • DIY clear varnishes for wood
  • DIY lacquers for metal


  • Lacquer-like fast drying and rapid hardness development
  • Excellent spray, dip coat and flow coat characteristics
  • Excellent early water resistance
  • Good exterior durability
  • Excellent block and print resistance
  • Good corrosion protection over ferrous metals
  • Excellent humidity resistance
  • Excellent water whitening resistance
  • High gloss and image clarity
  • Adhesion to substrates such as wood, metals (e.g., steel, aluminum) and some plastics
  • Good chemical and solvent resistance in a one-component coating
  • Self-thickening, sometimes eliminating the need for additional rheology modifiers
  • Compatibility with water-reducible epoxy esters for improved resistance to corrosion
