High performance


EMADOX®NA v3 protects the water based formulations (coatings, paints and varnishes) from the flash-rust phenomenon observed during the application and drying stages.

EMADOX®NA v3 is a ready to use aqueous solution combining several corrosion inhibitors.

EMADOX®NA v3 is VOC* free.

Applications - Dosage

EMADOX®NA v3 is mainly recommended for:

  • Water based anti-corrosive primers based on pure or modified acrylic binders (styrene – vinyl), polyurethane, one and two-pack epoxy.

EMADOX®NA v3 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 0.2 % based on the total weight

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