ProHere®

Primers, Top Coats, Direct to Metal (DTM), Intumescent Coatings and Lubricants

Overview

The ProHere® series for metal are waterborne polymer dispersions and emulsions specifically developed for use in metal coatings. The range encompasses both polymer resins that can serve as organic binders in a coating formulation as well as lubricants and anti-scratch additives for metal processing and in-use lubricants.

 
ProHere® E Series of Pretreatment Sealers and Thin Layer Industrial Metal Primers

Key Benefits

  • excellent (wet) adhesion to various metals, and in particular to steel, plated and hot-dipped galvanized (HDG) steel
  • high flexibility and mechanical properties, good lubrication
  • anti-corrosion properties at low dry film thickness (DFT)
  • excellent water, solvent and acid resistance
  • easy stripping of plating racks with hot alkali solution

Applications Include

  • fastener coatings (micro-corrosion)
  • coil coatings (primers, shop primer)
  • temporary / strippable coatings

ProHere® I Series for Stoving Enamels

Key Benefits

  • very high-temperature resistance (long term 370°C/700°F)
  • very good mechanical properties (impact, elongation)
  • thermoplastic film with very high Tg
  • good chemical and corrosion resistance
  • controlled heated curing to obtain heat resistant film

Applications Include

  • engine bay coatings, other hot zone coatings…
  • copper wiring (enamels)
  • high-performance metal fiber sizings
ProHere® P Series

Key Benefits

  • excellent (wet) adhesion to various metals, and in particular
  • to steel, plated and HDG steel
  • low permeability to acids, water, and oxygen
  • high flexibility and mechanical properties
