Application

N/A L-2877 can be used as a sole vehicle or blended with acrylic emulsions for spray or rotogravure applications. Rheology modifications can be made with associative thickeners for alternative application methods.

Drying

N/A The addition of coalescing solvent is recommended to achieve optimal film formation with L-2877. In ambient-cured systems the addition of 5 - 10 % DPnB coalescing solvent is suggested. Less coalescing solvent is required in heat-cured systems to attain comparable film properties. Typical drying temperatures and dwell times for aqueous coatings are sufficient to produce optimal film properties.
