Nor-Maali’s new Norepox Aqua DTM is an ideal solution to enhance work safety and reduce VOC emissions

31/5/2021

Demanding conditions set high standards for industrial coatings. With Nor-Maali’s Norepox Aqua DTM you can reach the same corrosion protection level as with traditional solvent-based coatings. This green solution ensures a superior end-result!

Norepox Aqua DTM is designed for more environmentally friendly and safer painting, without compromising on technical properties. The fast-drying, water-borne, two component epoxy coating contains active anticorrosion pigments, which guarantees an excellent corrosion resistance.

Norepox Aqua DTM reaches the same corrosion protection level as solvent-based coatings of the same category

Today’s water-borne coating technologies are able to challenge the traditional industrial solvent-based counterparts. In fact, compared to the solvent-based coatings, the advanced water-borne coatings already reach the same corrosion protection performance and durability.

Norepox Aqua DTM is based on latest advanced water-borne technology. Thanks to this, Norepox Aqua DTM has excellent anticorrosion properties, as good as its solvent-based epoxy counterparts. A one coat system (DTM) of 120 µm DFT reaches corrosion category C3-M.

User-friendly

Norepox Aqua DTM is safe both for the environment and for the painter. Since the coating barely contains flammable or explosive raw-materials, the risk of being exposed to hazardous substances minimizes significantly.

During the spraying forming of dry spray is minimal. The painted surface is always even and smooth. It also dries quickly at lower temperatures or in areas with limited ventilation.

Reducing VOC emissions is a challenge we must tackle together

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the biggest causes of emissions. This is why, we in Nor-Maali are constantly developing more environmentally friendly products, which are as excellent in technical properties as their solvent-based counterparts. Since water-borne coatings evaporate mainly water into the air, they are clearly a greener choice.
