EMADOX 102 protection flash rust colles, enduits, peintures

EMADOX®102 protects the water based formulations (coatings, paints and varnishes) from the flash-rust phenomenon observed during the application and drying stages.

EMADOX®102 is a ready to use aqueous solution made of several corrosion inhibitors.

EMADOX®102 is VOC* free, nitrite free and European Ecolabel* compliant.

Applications - Dosage

EMADOX®102 is mainly recommended for:

  • Water based paints based on:
  • pure or modified acrylic binders (styrene- vinyl),
  • polyurethane,
  • two-pack epoxy.

EMADOX®102 must be added preferentially in the letdown, before the rheological agents. The use in post-addition is also a possible option. The use levels are:

  • from 1 to 1.5% based on the total weight, depending on the final use

There is no advantage to use higher levels. On the contrary, a too high dosage can increase the water sensitivity of the dry film.
