PHILADELPHIA — Axalta has added Tufcote NISO 2K to its Tufcote portfolio. Tufcote NISO 2K is a non-isocyanate acrylic single-stage topcoat for the agriculture, construction and earthmoving equipment (ACE) markets.

Tufcote NISO 2K was benchmarked against the performance requirements of the leading global agricultural manufacturers and formulated to provide a robust application with good flow and leveling for an excellent appearance. Tufcote NISO 2K is a two-component, 3.5 VOC, lead- and chrome-free non-isocyanate cross-linked acrylic enamel topcoat that is designed to deliver superior weathering performance, high gloss and distinctness of image (DOI), as well as excellent flexibility and chip resistance. Fast dry times allow for quicker handling and assembly. Tufcote NISO 2K has excellent blendabilty for end-of-line repair in OEM operations. It is currently available in factory-packaged colors, and mixing machine capability will be available in early 2020.

"Axalta is committed to delivering products that continue to meet evolving demands of the industry," said Eric Kwasnicka, Axalta Product Specialist, Industrial North America. "Tufcote NISO 2K offers a superior technical performance without the health and safety concerns associated with isocyanates."

Tufcote NISO 2K can be applied with air-assisted, airless or air spray equipment, including electrostatic. Axalta recommends using Tufcote NISO 2K in conjunction with Corlar 3.0 epoxy primer.
