For over 25 years, Huntsman has been a global leader in the development and improvement of waterborne epoxy resins for ambient cure coatings. Regulatory initiatives to meet clean air standards continue to be the main impetus for coating formulators to consider waterborne epoxy systems. This aggressive regulatory environment is nothing new and has been the case for over 20 years, since the passing of the Clean Air Act in 1990.
However, new drivers for change are now being exercised by asset owners and architects, creating a high demand for green and sustainable products that can be certified. No longer is it just a legislative requirement that is pushing for change, but consumer demand. The benefits of waterborne epoxy systems versus conventional epoxy systems are now quite often the deciding factor in coating selection by decision makers.
