Bayer MaterialScience Unveils High-durability Waterborne Polyurethane Coatings Technology

Published on 2013-06-24. Author : SpecialChem

DENVER -- Coatings providing low odor, durability and pleasing aesthetics are sought after for commercial, healthcare and architectural applications. A new high-durability (HD) waterborne polyurethane coatings technology from Bayer MaterialScience LLC now enables architects to specify paints that meet all of these requirements, are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and add surprising beauty.

HD wall paint technology offers a number of benefits when used in paint formulations. These include:

  • Four times more durable than conventional latex paint
  • Withstands frequent scrubbing with harsh disinfectants/chemicals
  • Four times less expensive than tile
  • Emits little to no odor during application
  • Available in low-sheen or matte finishes

High-performance polyurethane paint technology was originally developed for advanced industrial maintenance coatings used in production and industrial facilities. The technology's proven performance benefits have been realized by coatings specifiers. Because of this, Bayer developed coatings utilizing HD wall paint technology that migrate key high-performance properties from industrial maintenance coatings into architectural paints. This HD technology is now being used in high-scrub/ high-touch areas in commercial and institutional buildings, such as hospitals, schools, universities and hotel lobbies.
