GP® BKS-2605 Coating Resin

GP® BKS-2605 heat-reactive phenolic resin solution can help manufacturers formulate coatings with lower volatile organic compounds (VOC). It provides the performance attributes of Georgia-Pacific Chemicals´ successful GP BKS-2600 resin but has the added ability to allow customers to produce a lower VOC coating than that available with GP BKS-2600 resin. It contains higher solids than the popular GP BKS-2600 resin. GP BKS-2600 resin is formulated to provide chemical resistance for protective coatings for rigid metallic substrates.
