Trilene® EPDM For Water-based Coatings

Introducing the First Water-Based Liquid EPDM

Lion Elastomers has developed a unique liquid EPDM grade specifically designed for water-based applications including coatings, inks, adhesives, sealants, and caulks. Introducing Trilene® 65D, an EPDM dispersion with cross-linking functionality. Trilene® 65D is compatible with a variety of latex resins and can be crosslinked with metal driers, peroxides, or UV light

What is Trilene®  65D from Lion Elastomers?

  • EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer)
  • 50/50 Ethylene/Propylene Ratio (45% Ethylene by Weight)
  • Water Dispersed
  • 55% Solids by Weight
  • Can be Used as a Tackifier for Adhesive Applications

When used in a formulation, Trilene® 65D imparts:

  • Excellent UV, Heat, Oxidation, and Chemical Stability
  • Good Mechanical Strength
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Zero Volatile Organic Content (VOC)
  • Improved Flexibility
  • Low Moisture Permeability
  • Adheres to a Variety of Surfaces

Formulation Instructions

Mix the Deionized Water, DISPERBYK® 2055, and Ti-Pureᵀᴹ R-706 until well dispersed.
Mix the Mineral Spirits, Ricon® 156, and SR350 until homogeneous.
Add Trilene® 65D to the resin mixture.
Combine the dispersed Ti-Pureᵀᴹ and resin mixtures.
Add 10% Cobalt Hydro-Cure® IV and 12% Zirconium Hydro-Cem last.

Formulation Notes

*a VOC exempt solvent can be substituted for Mineral Spirits
† a peroxide like Peroxan® PIN can be added to make a 2K system and further accelerate cure time
‡ base formula is considered low VOC
