EPS® 2252

Polymer for Low Surface Energy Roof Coatings

EPS® 2252

is a high solids acrylic emulsion designed to adhere to low energy substrates commonly used in roofing. Basecoats and primers based on EPS® 2252 offer outstanding adhesion to new thermoplastic olefin (TPO) and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber. EPS® 2252 provides the capability to formulate coatings at <50g/L VOC.

Applications

  • Primers

  • Basecoats

Benefits

  • Excellent adhesion to TPO, EPDM, metal, asphalt, and other common roofing substrates.
  • <50 g/L VOC capable
  • Can be used in both primer and basecoat formulations
  • Formulated without APEOs

Formulating Guidelines

  • Pigments: Careful selection of pigments is critical to many end-use properties, such as adhesion and water uptake. For optimal adhesion and water uptake performance, it is recommended that small particle size extenders be used, such as calcium carbonate. The PVC has also been shown to impact the adhesion to low energy substrates; highly filled systems may negatively impact adhesion and should be evaluated.

 

  • Dispersants & Surfactants: The use of and level of dispersants, surfactants and wetting aids may impact the adhesion performance properties of the roof coating. A ladder study is recommended to determine the optimum level.

More to explorer

EPS® 2570

EPS® 2570 is a self-crosslinking, styrenated acrylic emulsion offering excellent gloss, corrosion and chemical resistance, as well as early water resistance and rapid hardness development.

EPS2559

EPS® 2559

EPS 2559 is a styrenated acrylic emulsion with excellent early water and humidity resistance.
The early hydrophobic properties of EPS 2559 make it an excellent choice for high performance waterproofing paints on cementitious substrates and for use in tile mastics.
