Perstorp, Sweden -- Perstorp has launched a fast drying aliphatic polyisocyanate in the American market that can boost the drying speed of coatings without impacting durability or flexibility, a 13 April company statement claims.
Tolonate X FD 90 B, manufactured in Freeport, Texas, dries at quicker times, creating cost and energy savings, Perstorp said. "With chemical reactivity similar to standard HDI (hexamethylene diisocyanate) derivatives," Tolonate produces coatings with hardness, flexibility, chemical resistance and durability. It is designed for use in high-performance polyurethane paints and varnishes for the automotive, plastics, maintenance, aerospace, marine, wood and general industries, the company added.
"This polyisocyanate provides an incredibly fast drying action," said Chad Waldschmidt, Americas business director for Perstorp. "It allows coating manufacturers to produce non-yellowing two-component polyurethane paints and varnishes that dry quickly, offering their customers new opportunities to improve their productivity during the painting process," Waldschmidt added.
