Q: What is a 100% solid epoxy?
A: In the coatings industry 100% solids refers to a liquid material
that will change from a liquid to a solid without losing mass.
100% solids coatings contain either no solvent or a trace amount
of solvent from the manufacturing process.
Q: Are 100% solid epoxies new?
A: No. Since epoxy technologies commercialization in the late
1930's 100% solid epoxy resins have been utilized in a variety
Q: Are these materials difficult to apply?
A: Previous 100% solids epoxies used in fuel storage tank linings
were highly filled with fiberglass flakes and required plural
spray equipment for application. Significant surface preparation
for steel and concrete were required for successful adhesion.
These disadvantages made it difficult to design coatings for
general usage. With the addition of revolutionary and proprietary
curing agents ANC has overcome the many disadvantages of previous
solid epoxy formulations.
Q: How are IAG Intumescent coatings applied?
A: IAG's coatings can be applied with conventional airless spray
equipment, brush, or roller.
Q: What types of surfaces can be coated?
A: IAG coatings have excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates
and exhibit superior surface tolerance. They exhibit excellent
flow and penetrating properties. The ability to reach a true
chemical cure as opposed to a partial cure of solvent laden systems
make them an ideal coating choice for minimally prepared surfaces.
Q: What is the advantage of using IAG Intumescent
A: The ability to replace high VOC content multi-coat systems
with a single high performance coating which is user and environmentally
friendly is a significant quality of IAG's family of coatings
