Teraflex® DME-200 is an essential tool for formulating high-solids coatings with low VOC. It’s low vapor pressure can meet the VOC exemption criteria established by CARB for consumer and institutional products as well as the VOC exemption criteria established under Federal EPA 40 CFR 59.203 (F) 1 for consumer products. For this reason, Teraflex® DME-200 may not contribute to the VOC content of certain regulated coatings formulations.
Teraflex® DME-200 exhibits excellent solubility in various resins and polymers, and its high flash point allows its use in most high-solids coatings systems without a flammability label. Having a low, ester-like odor, the product is also biodegradable and non-corrosive.
Teramine® A-140 is designed for use in high-performance, low VOC, both clear and pigmented polyaspartic formulations to reduce viscosity and aid to improve application characteristics such as flow and leveling. Applications for polyaspartic coatings include use on concrete, metal, and wood, with and without primer, when properly formulated.
The relatively low reactivity of Teramine® A-140 with isocyanate groups help provide more working time for polyaspartic coatings. In some polyaspartic formulations, early hardness is also seen.
