Patented Technology and The Highest Cross Link Density

It’s formulated with a patented polymer, designed and engineered with high functional groups per molecule. When heat-cured, our patented coating forms 3-dimensional, screen-like structures with up to 784 cross-links. This far surpasses epoxies that only deliver 2 functional groups with only 4 cross-links.

Our patented technology cross-links through an ether (carbon-oxygen-carbon) linkage. This eliminates high concentrations of hydroxyl groups (found in epoxies) and precludes the formation of ester groups (found in vinyl esters) that are subject to hydrolysis and acid attack.

We were getting inquiries from our customers about this unique coating. So we tested it, and then lined several OTRs and it performed well. Soon other companies wanted to start using it too.
