Description

GP-421 is an emulsion of a reactive, further curable silicone resin in water carrier (GP-422). Heating substrates treated with GP-421 will accelerate cure of the resin component of GP-421, with the following schedule determined for aluminum substrates:

Substrate Temperature
Cure Time
150°C (302°F)
8 Hrs.
175°C (347°F)
3 Hrs.
200°C (392°F)
1 Hr.

Cure times at various temperatures will be reduced on substrates such as masonry, because of the alkaline nature of masonry, which helps catalyze the resin curing reaction.

Applications

GP-421 may be applied to porous substrates such as wood, leather, textiles or masonry to impart water repellency properties - blocking penetration of liquid water, while still allowing moisture in the vapor phase to pass through. GP-421 may be used as a component in paints or coatings intended primarily for exterior applications, where the silicone resin component will improve weathering resistance and allow moisture transfer. Some more specific applications are listed below:

  • Latex Paint Additive (Improved Weathering)
  • Binder in High Temperature Paints
  • Aqueous Adhesive Formulations

Processing and Safety Guidelines

GP-421 should be mixed prior to use to insure homogeneity. Refer to Safety Data Sheet for safety requirements.
