Published on 2016-05-12. Author : SpecialChem

HONG KONG, China -- BASF has launched two new products to help customers overcome the typical challenges of water-based coatings systems, and meet growing demand for waterborne and low volatile organic compounds (VOC) solutions. The new products, an acrylic dispersion and hydrophilically-modified polyisocyanate for water-based 1K and 2K systems respectively help improve appearance, simplify handling and broaden formulation latitudes.

Crosslinker for Water-based Coatings

Joncryl® 8310 is a new high performance hydroxyl-functional acrylic dispersion with excellent appearance on a range of wood substrates. Joncryl® 8310 ensures good hardness in 1K systems which can be further enhanced via crosslinking with isocyanates. Its excellent dry film clarity helps improve the appearance of wood grains and is suitable for both clear and pigmented coatings.

The innovative crosslinker, Basonat® HW2100, is ideal for water-dilutable coating solutions, particularly for wood, industrial and automotive coatings. With low VOC, non-yellowing, good light fastness and excellent chemical resistance, Basonat HW2100 has a balanced profile regarding resistance, reactivity and compatibility with primary and secondary dispersions.
