EWB-36 is a high-performance waterborne epoxy acrylic coating for steel, concrete, masonry, wood, galvanizing, aluminum substrates, previously painted surfaces V.C.T. tile and similar. Combining the long-term protection of epoxy with the gloss and color retention of acrylic, EWB-36 provides a lustrous, stain-resistant, cleanable finish that retains its attractive appearance far longer than two-component solvent epoxies and traditional systems.

EWB-36 requires minimal surface preparation, usually only power-tool cleaning or metal etching. It dries much faster than solvent VOC-compliant epoxies and conventional epoxy acrylics.

Low-hazard, low-odor EWB-36 meets air quality regulations and cleans up easily. EWB-36 resists splash and spill of most household and industrial chemicals, provides excellent long-term protection in industrial and chemical environments. Washable and scrub resistant, EWB-36 withstands steam cleaning. Good abrasion resistance makes EWB-36 a durable coating for floors, walls and other high-wear areas.
