Amerguard gives you the environmental benefits of waterborne coatings plus high performance

Shown is a portion of the molecular structure ofAmerguard 335 advanced formula epoxy acrylic.

If you think high performance and waterborne are contradictory terms, think again. Now you can have the environmental protection, low odor,

VOC compliance and convenience of waterborne coatings along with high performance previously available only with solvent-based coatings.

Ameron, the leader in high-performance coatings technology for over 50 years, has developed the

Amerguard waterborne system—a family of products formulated especially for tough applications, including marine topsides. You can use them in your most sensitive shipboard environments. And you won't have hazardous waste disposal problems.

Amerguard coatings significantly outperform conventional alkyds and many other solvent-based paints, yet they're easy to mix, apply and clean up.

The Amerguard system includes an extra-heavy-duty, rust-inhibitive epoxy primer; a high-build, surface- tolerant acrylic primer; a direct-to-metal, flexible acrylic topcoat; a high-gloss, water-resistant epoxy acrylic topcoat; and a rugged, 100% solids epoxy topcoat with zero VOC and an EPA hazardous waste designation of none.
