Special Properties and Uses

Sole binder for white and clear interior and exterior can-coating systems, stamping enamels, capsule lacquers, foil lacquers and coil-coating primers with outstanding resistances, sterilization proof.

Suggested Uses and Processing Information

BECKOPOX™ VEM 2448 is designed as sole binder mainly. At stoving temperatures of 180-220°C, BECKOPOX™ VEM 2448 gives coatings with a high resistance against chemicals, good corrosion protection and excellent adhesion on nonferrous metals. BECKOPOX™ VEM 2448 can be "shock-cured" too, e.g. at a PMT of 240°C for 60 s. The resulting films are resistant against sterilization (e.g. 60 min. / 121°C in 2% lactic acid).

PROCESSING

  • BECKOPOX™ VEM 2448 is diluted with suitable solvents like esters, ketones or mixtures thereof to processing viscosity. OH-group containing solvents should not be used, not even in small amounts.
  • BECKOPOX™ VEM 2448 can be catalyzed by phosphoric acid (0.5-1.5 % phosphoric acid, 45%, calculated on form of delivery). The storage stability of such catalyzed lacquers is however limited, the same applies to combinations with melamine and benzoguanamine resins.
  • For the formulation of white internal coatings, the use of "chloride" types of titanium dioxide is recommended. The usual binder : pigment ratio is 1 : 1 (by weight).
