During the last decade, silicon-based materials have grown from niche utility to be viewed as a premier coatings technology for high performance industrial maintenance paints. The demand for regulatory-compliant, differentiated coatings has spurred development in polysiloxane technologies. An extensive study has generated a new class of low viscosity, solventless silicone resins with amine functionality. Application data on thermal, weather and chemical resistance demonstrates the potential utility of this new technology in marine and protective coatings. This webinar will offer practical examples of how this technology is being used in this industry.
