BRUSSELS, BELGIUM -- Cytec Industries Inc. will be present at the European Coatings Conference "High-performance Waterborne Clearcoats II", taking place in Berlin/Germany on November 12 & 13th.

Polyurethane dispersions and acrylic emulsions or dispersions are widely and successfully used in many clear coat systems today. Many applications however are still served by solventborne systems and a large potential for further growth in waterborne systems is still available.

"During my presentation I will highlight some of the general chemical and process levers used to tailor resins for specific applications. For acrylics, I will talk about self-crosslinking and 2K isocyanate crosslinking under ambient or forced drying conditions," says Stefan Van Den Branden, Director of Technical Service & Development - Liquid Coating Resins. "For the Polyurethane technology I will focus on TMXDI® isocyanate as a platform for 1K and 2K PUDs and on the development of UV-crosslinkable PUDs. New opportunities for acrylic and Polyurethane clear coat systems will be discussed as well," he added.
