Versatile water based, acrylic copolymer binder for use in industrial maintenance primers, topcoats and direct to metal (DTM) topcoats. Represents the latest technology from Dow Coating Materials for high performance, low VOC industrial maintenance coatings. It offers formulators a single resin which can be formulated into corrosion-resistant primers, highly durable topcoats, and high gloss DTM finish coats. Based on AVANSE™ Technology, incorporates ambient temperature self-crosslinking chemistry and a novel polymer composition. Through a combination of novel technologies, facilitates the formulation of high performing coatings at lower Volatile Organic Content (VOC) at or below 100 g/L (USA method, water excluded). Coatings based on MAINCOTE 1100A Emulsion offers more efficient pigment spacing resulting in good performance in corrosion resistance, gloss and exterior durability. Exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates including metals, concrete and to alkyd painted substrates. Its ambient curing properties make it an excellent candidate to replace solvent borne alkyd paints to facilitate conformance with environmental regulations.
