Diluent and Modifiers

Paladin offers diluents and modifiers based on CNSL technology which provide formulator to achieve high solid coating formulations. Paladin’s reactive and non-reactive diluents not only lower viscosity of formulation but also provides good corrosion resistance, flexibility, and water resistance attributed to cardanol structure.Formulators can use our diluents to achieve enhance performance and workability in high solid solvent free formulation. CNSL based diluents and modifiers provides coatings with excellent hydrophobicity attributed to long side chain.

Paladin PEPOX-7513 and PEPOX-7513 SL are monofunctional reactive epoxy diluents that can be used to increase the flexibility and impact, and chemical and water resistance of epoxy coatings. They are both identical in chemical make-up and excellent alternatives to traditional glycidyl ethers.

P-7000 series is non-reactive cardanol based diluent which can impart very good flexibility and corrosion resistance. The long hydrophobic aliphatic side chain of the cardanol gives these products a very low viscosity and provides excellent early water resistance. Formulator can achieve increases in pot life and good flow without affecting chemical and performance properties of coatings.

Why to use Epoxy diluents?
  • Highly useful to improve solid of coatings
  • Cost reduction
  • Reduction in development of heat and shrinkage during cure
  • Good electrical properties
  • Optimize performance like impact strength, flexibility, filler loading
