Encor® 2181 latex

Encor® 2181 is a styrene acrylic emulsion polymer that provides an excellent balance of performance and value in clear sealers and topcoats for furniture and for use in interior wood coatings applications.

Features

  • Fast drying and hardness development. Figure 1 below details Persoz pendulum hardness performance.
  • Coatings based on Encor® 2181 latex display excellent resistance to water and hydrophilic stains. Figure 2 below details chemical resistance performance.
  • Produces films with high glass transition temperatures with excellent clarity and sanding properties.
  • Sealers formulated with Encor® 2181 latex display excellent sandability and recoatability performance.
  • Coatings display good film formation with fast-evaporating solvents with no permanent plasticizers.
  • Contributes warm aspect in coatings applied to wood.

Chemical Resistance Test Methodology

1. Spray application on pine at 100 g/m2

            + 5 min. at room temp.

            + 30 min. at 40°C

            + light sanding

2. Spray application at 100 g/m2

            + 5 min. at room temp.

            + 30 min. at 40°C

3. Evaluation after 21 days at 23°C, 50% RH
