Brussels -- Cytec Industries Inc. has introduced a new high-performance acrylated polyurethane dispersion for UV-curable field applied matte coatings on wood, vinyl and vinyl composition tile (VCT).
Ucecoat 7891 dispersion allows users to develop low-gloss formulations without the use of silicas or other particles and dead matte formulations with very low amounts of silica, says Cytec. This results in formulations with better shelf life, since the settling of particles is no longer a concern, Cytec says.
Ucecoat 7891 based floor coatings have a uniform, transparent matte appearance and show a good balance of flexibility and hardness, thus providing good adhesion and coin resistance. The material also gives good solvent and chemical resistance.
"Ucecoat 7891 is the ideal resin for even matte appearance without mottling or areas with different gloss levels," said Stefan Smeets, global new business development manager, in a company statement. "It also helps to achieve seamless overlap between two coated areas."
