Advances in 2K ISO-Free Urethane Coating Technology
Recorded Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at 11AM EDT
Presented by Dow Coating Materials
This webinar will discuss a breakthrough two-component (2K) isocyanate- and formaldehyde-free* urethane chemistry which can be applied to auto refinishing; agriculture, construction and earth moving equipment (ACE); maintenance and protective coatings for metal; and industrial wood. Top priorities for industrial coatings formulators and applicators include reducing cure time, longer pot life, minimizing material waste, improving application flexibility and promoting overall durability of the final product. New PARALOID™ Edge Isocyanate-Free Technology from Dow Coating Materials can offer these high-performance benefits and understanding how this new chemistry works can play a key role in helping formulators meet customer needs.
Webinar attendees will learn about:
- 2K urethane chemistry that can offer ambient curing capabilities, reduce cure time and lengthen pot life
- ISO- and formaldehyde-free technology that can improve the environmental, health and safety (EH&S) profile for coatings applicator environments
- Durable acrylic and alkyd coating systems that can withstand harsh environments for auto refinishing, ACE, maintenance and protective coatings, and industrial wood substrates
*Manufactured without isocyanate, and manufactured without formaldehyde or formaldehyde generators
