Bayer MaterialScience LLC launches new acrylic dispersions in North America

Published on 2010-04-26. Author : SpecialChem

PITTSBURGH -- Bayer MaterialScience LLC is introducing new waterborne acrylic products to the North American market - Bayhydrol® AH XP 2741 dispersion and Bayhydrol® AH XP 2754 dispersion.

Solvent-free Bayhydrol® AH XP 2741 dispersion was developed for the formulation of environmentally friendly, one-component coatings for indoor wood construction, as well as for furniture. Clearcoats formulated with this waterborne styrene acrylate copolymer are characterized by high grain accentuation and good chemical resistance. This dispersion can be used to easily formulate primers, high-gloss and semi-gloss coatings. It can also be used in combination with polyurethane dispersions and in waterborne ultraviolet-cure formulations. Notably, the guide formula based on Bayhydrol® AH XP 2741 acrylic dispersion passed MPI (Master Painters Institute® Inc.) 129, a standard for a water-based, clear, semi-gloss finish for interior wood.

Bayhydrol® AH XP 2754 dispersion can be used to formulate one-component, clear and pigmented lacquers for single-layer coatings and topcoats. Formulations based on this technology exhibit excellent chemical resistance and very high hardness. This dispersion is especially well-suited for plastic coatings applications in consumer electronics and other markets.

"As a leading supplier of raw materials to the coatings industry, Bayer MaterialScience LLC always looks for opportunities to expand its product portfolio to meet market needs," said Peg Kendi, associate scientist, Coatings, Adhesives and Specialties, Bayer MaterialScience LLC. "Our launch of these new acrylic dispersions in North America illustrates this commitment."
