Waterborne Metal Coatings

 
 

Our exclusive ASAC™ Technology has enabled the development of high performance Waterborne Coatings for Metal Surfaces that provide exceptional finish appearance with excellent adhesion. These coatings are available in clear or pigmented options and allow for many other performance criteria including corrosion resistance and flexibility.  GreenLight Coatings™ sealers offer the perfect balance of Performance and Environmental Sustainability to allow conformance to the program requirements of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), Greenseal, and LEED.  

 
 
 

Waterborne Metal Coatings - Water Based Metal Coatings - Green Light Coatings Application Tech Tips

 

The GreenLight Coatings waterborne metal coatings can be either ambient air dry or thermal cure in nature.  Recommended application methods can range from high speed roll coating tor spray methods and even other methods both in automated and manual form.  Drying can be accomplished in ambient conditions and by special industrial oven conditions including bake for thermoset properties.  Check with Van Technologies to discuss your specific application needs.

 

VanKyd DTM Primer

The VanKyd DTM Primer is ideal for the maximum protection of metal surfaces against the effects of corrosion.  It is a waterborne epoxy composition and displays exceptional hide and adhesion to clean metal surfaces.  The cured film is hard and flexible.  VanKyd DTM Primer provides an effective barrier against corrosive environments for ferrous and non-ferrous fabrications and industrial components.  VanKyd DTM Primer should be applied to metal surfaces that are clean, dry, free of rust, oil and mill scale.  Surfaces will be dry to the touch after 45 minutes and with adequate ventilation, will be through cured after 24 hours.  Application of the VanKyd DTM Primer can be by airless spray, or dip coating.

VanKyd DTM Topcoat

VanKyd DTM Topcoat is a decorative waterborne corrosion preventative coating.  It displays exceptional hide and adhesion to clean metal surfaces.   The cured film is hard and flexible.  VanKyd DTM Topcoat provides an effective barrier against corrosive environments for ferrous and non-ferrous fabrications and industrial components.  It can be manufactured in a number of gloss levels and colors to match nearly any application requirements. VanKyd DTM Topcoat should be applied to metal surfaces that are clean, dry, free of rust, oil and mill scale.  Surfaces will be dry to the touch after 45 minutes and with adequate ventilation, will be through cured after 24 hours.  Application of the VanKyd DTM Topcoat can be by airless spray, or dip coating.

VanAqua Red Acrylic Topcoat

VanAqua Red Acrylic Topcoat is a water based corrosion preventative, acrylic coating.  It displays exceptional hide and adhesion to most clean metal surfaces. VanAqua Red Acrylic Topcoat provides an effective barrier against corrosive environments for ferrous and non-ferrous metals when first, VanKyd DTM Primer is applied on clean, dry, free of rust, oil and mill scale surfaces.  VanAqua Red Acrylic Topcoat may be dry to the touch within 15 minutes at normal room temperature!  The primer and topcoat should be through cured, with adequate ventilation, after 24 hours.  VanAqua Red Acrylic Topcoat can be applied using an HVLP, airless, or conventional spray equipment.  Other applications may also be used.

 

VanAqua-780 Black

The VanAqua-780 Black is a gloss black, thermoset acrylic water based coating.  It displays exceptional density and adhesion to most clean metal surfaces with good corrosion and weathering resistance, and excellent flash rust resistance on carbon steel surfaces.  Although designed for high speed roll coating, it has been successfully applied by spray coatings and other methods of application may also be used.  VanAqua-780 Black should be dried at temperatures between ambient and 200° F and cured at temperatures above 325° F.  Typical processes use progressively increased temperatures to facilitate a smooth transition from drying to curing.  Exceptionally rapid drying is possible, but is dependent on the type of heat source and air circulation used.   VanAqua-780 Black can be manufactured in a number of different colors.

 

VanAqua-781 White

The VanAqua-781 White is a decorative matte white, thermoset acrylic water based coating.  It displays exceptional hide and adhesion to clean metal surfaces with good UV and metal marking resistance, moderate corrosion resistnace, and excellent flash rust resistance on carbon steel surfaces.  Although designed for high speed roll coating, it has been successfully applied by spray coating and other methods of application may also be used.  VanAqua-781 White should be dried at temperatures between ambient and 200° F and cured at temperatures above 325° F. Typical processes use progressively increased temperatures to facilitate a smooth transition from drying to curing. Exceptionally rapid drying is possible, due to the high solid content, but is dependent on the type of heat source used.  VanAqua-781 White can also be manufactured in a number of different colors.

 

VanAqua-782 DTM Topcoat

VanAqua-782 DTM Topcoat is a water based acrylic direct to metal coating.  It exhibits a fast dry rate and is typically tack free within 30 minutes, to an hour after coating application, depending on thickness and drying conditions.   The final coating exhibits a high gloss finish and displays exceptional adhesion to most clean metal surfaces with good flash rust resistance on carbon steel surfaces.  Although designed for spray application, other methods of application may also be used.   VanAqua-782 exhibits excellent corrosion resistance for single coat applications.  this coating passes 500 hours in corrosion testing on phosphatized Q-Panels with no evidence of coating degradation.  Further testing is needed to verify the results obtained and to determine the maximum number of hours the coating will tolerate.  VanAqua-782 should be dried at temperatures between ambient and 200° F and cured at temperatures above 325° F.  Typical processes use progressively increased temperatures to facilitate a smooth drying transition thus permitting best film formation and uniformity.  Exceptionally rapid drying is possible, but is dependent on the type of heat source and air circulation used.

 

VanAqua-783 DTM Topcoat

VanAqua-783 DTM Topcoat  is a clear, thermoplastic acrylic water based coating.  It displays exceptional adhesion to most clean metal surfaces with good flash rust resistance on carbon steel surfaces.  Although designed for dip coating, it has been successfully applied by spray coating and other methods of application may also be used.  VanAqua-783 should be dried at temperatures between ambient and 200° F and can be cured at temperatures above 325° F with minor formulation adjustments.  Typical processes use progressively increased temperatures to facilitate a smooth drying transition thus permitting best film formation and uniformity.  Exceptionally rapid drying is possible, but is dependent on the type of heat source and air circulation used.
