A new water-soluble epoxy hardener for epoxy- based floor coatings has been developed by using a controlled molecular architecture. The hardener is VOC-free with very low free amine monomer levels. Many waterborne epoxy systems are relatively low in viscosity and thus are easy to apply and can level into a smooth film or layer after application. Water-based curing agents can eliminate or reduce volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the formulations, and so reduce the odor and environmental and health risks associated with the presence of such compounds. Shrinkage is caused by high tension in a cured network which has a high level of internal energy. The architectural design of the hardener is critical to controlling the level of shrinkage. Poor distribution of crosslinking or branching sites can lead to high localized tension in the polymer network. This is increasingly a problem in high build systems such as self-leveling formulations where the binder content is normally low. Source
