Newly designed low-viscosity oligomers allow the formulation of UV-curable soft-touch coatings without the need for solvent or water diluents.
The present study shows that the reactive diluent Tolonate X FLO 100, used in blend with conventional HDI-based polyisocyanates, can bring significant advantages to 2K polyaspartic systems.
The metal packaging industry demands a high-performing coating with a food safety profile desirable to consumers, which not only avoids BPA, but also other materials of concern such as epoxy, styrene or phenolic crosslinkers.
Adding formaldehyde-free alternatives to the encapsulation arsenal will be beneficial for many manufacturers, especially those creating products used directly by consumers or in building materials used in residential or office buildings.
The ability of a formulator to achieve higher-solids automotive coatings provides OEMs a durable, sustainable coatings solution to help capture productivity benefits without sacrificing performance relative to traditional automotive coatings s…
This article details a statistical design experiment that was commissioned to explore in more detail the roles and effectiveness of varying parameters (raw materials, PVC, types of steel, etc.) in producing intumescent paints.
Waterborne OMU has all the advantages of solventborne OMU including inherent mar resistance, chemical resistance and amber film color, while overcoming the shortcomings of low-VOC solventborne OMU including slow dry and softer film.
The consumer wants it all. The commonwealth wants what’s best for all. As scientists, we keep proving that we can meet that high standard. And the work is far from over.
The most effective route towards becoming truly sustainable is clearly to research, develop and promote more sustainable monomers and other raw materials into the marketplace.
This new technology drives higher sustainability options for waterborne, ambient and UV-curable polyurethane dispersion-based coatings.
