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)
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
Zero Volatile Organic Content (VOC)
Low Moisture Permeability
Adheres to a Variety of Surfaces

Sample coatings formulation
Wetting and Dispersing Aid
Mineral Spirits or VOC Exempt Solvent
10% Cobalt Hydro-Cure® IV
12% Zirconium Hydro-Cem
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.
*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
