Quebec, Ontario · More info

The CL100 water based cross-linker is a zero VOC chemical additive which can be used with all Emtech water based wood finishes. It is used to improve the appearance and resilience of water-based coats by coupling the resin molecules of the film forming finish into tighter, harder bonds when fully cured. This product offers an extended pot life and resin/catalyst reactivity in comparison to traditional acid catalysts

CL100 will remain active in water-soluble resin solutions up to 10 days after initial induction. Gelling and hardening is not likely if the cross-linked material is stored in a hermetic container or a pressurized fluid handling system.

Coatings cross-linked with CL100 cross-linker will provide an improved water, chemical abrasion and scratch resistance, as well as an improved adhesion to extreme substrates.

Directions for use

Add cross-linker to the final coat only.

Measure 2-5% of CL100 based on the quantity of water-based coating to be catalyzed. You can use the numbers below:

  • For 2% concentration:
    • 32oz / 946ml of coating: 0.5 fl oz / 15ml
    • 1 Gal / 3.7 L of coating: 2.5 fl oz / 75ml
    • 5 Gal / 18.5 L of coating: 12 fl oz / 355ml
  • For 5% concentration:
    • 32oz / 946ml of coating: 1.5 fl oz / 45ml
    • 1 Gal / 3.7 L of coating: 6.5 fl oz / 190ml
    • 5 Gal / 18.5 L of coating: 32 fl oz / 946ml

Gently stir the selected water-based coating while slowly adding the pre-measured CL100 into the coating. Continue to gently stir the cross-linker/coating mixture for 5 minutes. Allow the cross-linker/coating to react for a minimum of 30 minutes before using.

For best results premix cross-linker/coating 2-4 hours before applying. This will ensure optimum catalyst reaction time and flow/levelling performance of the coating during spray or brush applications.
