Versatile PU chemistry for specialty, functional coating formulations
Polyurethane coatings are based on a well-defined chemical structure. This enables polyurethane coating systems to be formulated specifically for end-use requirements.
The properties of an end coating are influenced by the combination of building blocks and how they are formulated. The quality and versatility of aliphatic polyurethane (PU) systems provide formulating flexibility and open the door for increased coating functionality, enhancing a coating’s practical value.
Functional PU coatings can impart useful characteristics above and beyond such standard properties as decoration and protection. Self-healing coatings and peelable coatings are just two examples of functional coatings.
Covestro can produce polyurethane dispersions via various technologies. Having a choice of production technologies allows us to choose the dispersion composition that will optimize the polymer performance properties for the specific application.
The evolution of our product families results in ongoing developments of technical product alternatives that can be used in new and varied market segments. Smartly combining and/or formulating our products allow our customers to obtain special properties and develop new systems and applications.
