Polycaprolactone (PCL) polyols can be used to enhance coatings that feature other polymer chemistries in both 1K and 2K coatings. This article explores the performance benefits achieved when low-molecular-weight PCL tri- and tetra-functional polyols are blended with other hydroxyl-functional polymers in 2K coatings.
The world's first 3D, form-free, industrially applicable and commercially viable crystal glass-pigment technology solves the technical challenges for incorporation in high-end color coating systems. These perfectly round crystal glass-microsphere dispersions provide increased visibility and detectability, while still maintaining the high-end thin-layer finish required by the automotive and wider-mobility industry.
In trend research released last fall, the company stated that the traditional automotive color wheel was going through a transformation. The recently released color report shows, among other things, that achromatic colors, which have always formed the foundation of automotive color, are experiencing a significant shift.
In vehicle painting, pre-treatment is still one of the process steps that takes up the most space in a plant. One company offers a new modular pre-treatment system that is revolutionizing systems for small and medium capacities with a scalable, space-saving, and sustainable solution.
