Two of the more common 2K coatings systems are polyurethane and epoxy. This and next month’s Formulating with Mike column will concentrate on urethanes, with this issue focusing on polyurethane polymers.
What is the best respiratory mask to be used during powder coating application? The ChemQuest Group’s Joe Powder shares his powder coating knowledge and expertise by answering questions sent in from around the world.
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.
Natural wood and organic materials continue to be relevant in today’s interior design. As homeowners seek new and exciting ways to incorporate wood into their homes, Sherwin-Williams presents four color trends that can help you stay ahead.
This study comprehensively evaluated novel, ultra-low-VOC 1K and 2K waterborne floor-coating systems designed to provide eco-friendly, lower-VOC alternatives to traditional solvent-based coatings. The materials employed in these innovative systems showed remarkable performance when subjected to industry-standard tests.
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.
