Covestro Waterborne UV Resins Industrial Coating Applications Covestro announces that it is developing a waterborne and UV family of high-performing resins. It is for industrial coating applications. This includes wood furniture, cabinetry and building products.

Real-time Transformation in Industrial Coatings Industry

Covestro’s waterborne resins are fueling a real-time transformation in the industrial coatings industry. There is growing regulatory and public pressure for water-based solutions. So, manufacturers in the wood and building products industry now have new performance targets for raw material suppliers. Covestro solutions meet these targets.

Covestro can move users beyond basic specifications to the next generation of must-have performance attributes. It includes:

  • A more circular, water-based solution without substances of high concern
  • Three times less volatile organic compounds with performance characteristics. It should match solvent-based resins
  • Energy savings with at least 50% less oven time to remove the water. And reduced carbon footprint from manufacturing efficiencies

Coaters are seeking improvements in factory efficiency. They are also seeking the need to expand production with less rework and damage. This is due to current coating systems with slow water-releasing properties,” said Mike Jeffries. He is the business development manager of Industrial Coatings at Covestro.

One of our water-based solutions offers up to a 50-60% improvement in line speed. It will also maintain other key performance properties of the end-use product,” added Jeffries.

Offers Fast Drying Efficiency

The high-performing waterborne resins deliver fast drying efficiency. They also offer excellent stability and improved chemical and block resistance. Increased resin stability can reduce waste for manufacturers. While gains in throughput can facilitate production expansion without the need for major capital expenditure. The versatility of the resin also means it is capable of adhesion to multiple substrates.

Differentiated solutions built on principles of sustainability that meet our customers and their customers’ needs are a core tenet at Covestro,” said Aaron Lockhart. He is the sector head of Industrial Coatings, North America at Covestro.

Covestro is actively driving the industrial coatings market towards circularity and sustainability. It is aiming for profitable growth that benefits the entire industry,” added Lockhart.
