Leverkusen, Germany - Bayer MaterialScience has added three new polyurethane raw material products to its Bayhydrol UV range of water-thinned, radiation-curing coating materials, the company said in a 14 Oct company statement.
Bayhydrol UV XP 2690, a polyurethane dispersion, was specifically designed for exterior wood applications, whilst also being suitable for clear coats as well as pigmented top coats.
Bayhydrol UV XP 2687, a polyurethane emulsion, was developed as a primer and is recognised for its "excellent grain accentuation and adhesion to all wood types, even those containing oil," BMS said.
The final new raw material, Bayhydrol UV XP 2775, is a solvent-free waterborne dispersion for white-pigmented, radiation-curing coatings and top coats. According to BMS, the product is characterised by "excellent chemical and stain resistance, even where there is a high pigment content."
BMS will present the new raw materials at the RadTech Conference from 14-15 Oct 2009 in Nice, France, the statement said. (RD)
