Cytec Launches Innovative UV Curable Polyurethane Dispersion for Pigmented Spray Coatings

Published on 2008-07-07. Author : SpecialChem

West Paterson, NJ -- Cytec Industries Inc. a leading innovator in water-borne systems, has successfully launched a new member of its range of UV curable products under the name UCECOAT® 7699.

UCECOAT® 7699 is an aliphatic UV curable polyurethane dispersion (PUD), especially designed for high end wooden furniture top coats. Due to its outstanding benefits compared to traditional UV-PUDs, this unique material is particularly recommended for pigmented coatings. It can, however, also be used for clear coatings and other applications and substrates.

The product exhibits a low viscosity level (35 percent solid content) and can therefore easily be applied by spray or curtain coaters. It shows an outstanding hardness and scratch resistance (pendulum persoz hardness before UV curing: 135 seconds and after UV curing: 360 seconds), as well as an exceptional stain resistance. Furthermore UCECOAT® 7699 is characterized by its excellent stability and high reactivity in both pigmented and clear systems. These features make it the ideal choice for top coat applications that are also in thick pigmented layers.

UCECOAT® 7699 meets the growing need of the furniture industry for more innovative systems by allowing an easy formulation of a broad variety of colors with one single system. It is the result of Cytec's ongoing commitment to offer new value-added and unique solutions for water-borne UV curable systems.
