Quebec, Ontario · More info

Procat Crosslinker is a water-based, VOC-free chemical additive that can be used with all Ardec water-based lacquers. It improves durability by increasing resistance to water, chemical agents, abrasion and scratches, while providing better adhesion.

Procat works by coupling the resin molecules of the film that forms the finish into tighter and stronger bonds as it hardens.

This product offers a longer shelf life as well as a superior resin / catalyst reactivity when compared to traditional acid catalysts.

Procat will remain active in a water soluble resin solution for up to 5 days following the initial induction. Gelling or hardening is unlikely if the crosslinked material is stored in an airtight container or in a pressurized fluid reservoir.

  • Increases resistance to abrasion and to household cleaning products
  • Increases resistance to water
  • Improves scratch resistance
  • Provides a mixture shelf life for a minimum of 5 days
  • Improves the drying time and simplifies sanding of primers
  • VOC free
  • Compatible with Ardec water-based lacquers

Directions for use

Determine the required quantity of Procat based on the type of water-based coating and the quantity to be catalyzed.

For a concentration of 5% (Polyclear, Polyseal and Polywhite):

  • 946 ml of coating: 45ml
  • 3.78 L of coating: 190ml
  • 18.9 L of coating: 946ml

For a concentration of 2.5% (Proprime):

  • 946 ml of coating: 24 ml
  • 3.78 L of coating: 95 ml
  • 18.9 L of coating: 473 ml

Gently mix the chosen water-based coating while slowly adding the pre-measured amount of Procat. Keep gently mixing the crosslinking coating / catalyst mixture for 5 minutes. Allow the mixture to react for a minimum of 30 minutes before using.

For best results, mix 2 to 4 hours before application. This will ensure optimal catalyst reaction time and performance of the mixture when applied with a brush or spray.
