Aqua-Zen™ AL

Aqua-Zen™AL acrylic latex topcoats are interior water-based, low VOC, HAPS-free coatings which can be applied directly to ferrous and non-ferrous metals and numerous plastic substrates. Ideal for industrial applications where fast drying, low VOC coatings are required. Aqua-Zen™ AL exhibits excellent adhesion, and is more environmentally friendly than traditional solvent-based coatings.

Typical Applications: Interior use for finishing general metal and certain plastics.

Poly-Zen™ B

Poly-Zen™ B baking enamels are polyester or acrylic melamine baking enamels intended for interior applications where a hard, durable coating is required. These VOC-compliant, solvent-based coatings are designed to thermally cure for increased processing efficiencies and offer a durable direct-to-metal finish.

Typical Applications: Oven range hoods, sheet metal enclosures, appliances, hydraulic cylinders, coil coating applications, office furniture and many other thermal cure applications.

Lower VOCs contribute to healthier air

Focused on the environment.

Hentzen developed environmentally friendly coatings long before the words sustainability, green or even environment were in vogue. We lead the industry in developing low-solvent content coatings; coatings free from hazardous air pollutants and organic pigments that replaced heavy metal types, and coatings that reduce Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions.
