OSC’s Bio-based Light-curable Floor Coatings Named 2018 R&D 100 Awards Finalist

Winners will be announced in November at the fourth annual R&D 100 conference. The R&D 100 Awards program honors the 100 most innovative technologies of the past year. Finalists were selected by an independent panel of more than 50 judges representing R&D leaders in a variety of fields. More information about the awards can be found here.

Bio-preferred Floor Coating

  • The coating is a UV-cured, high-performance, bio-preferred floor coating with no volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • The clean, green soy-acylate-based product delivers exceptionally low cure times and meets or exceeds industry targets for appearance, hardness, adhesion, solvent resistance, and application temperature

As Ohio soybean farmers, we can be proud that our checkoff dollars are being used to make products that are worthy of prestigious recognition,” said Nathan Eckel, OSC Research Committee chair and soybean farmer from Wood County. “This kind of honor just goes to show how versatile soybeans can be.”

If Light Curable Coatings wins in November, it will be the ninth R&D 100 Award presented to OSC since 2002.
