DSM NeoResins+ launches NeoRez® R-1010, a unique polyurethane dispersion offering the combination of soft feel and matting

Published on 2007-12-05. Author : SpecialChem

DSM NeoResins+ has successfully developed a new polyurethanes dispersion for the Coatings and Graphic Arts market offering a unique combination of soft feel and matting. This new development NeoRez® R-1010 meets the growing environmental needs of the coatings market by being completely solvent free and also free of hazardous solvents like N-Methyl-Pyrolidone, a typical solvent present in a large number of commercially available polyurethanes dispersions. The product does not contain alkyl phenol exthoxylated compounds suspected as endocrine mimickers.

The clean nature of the product makes it highly versatile in coating applications and can be used as a special effect coating in inks and varnishes for packaging or to impact soft feel on items such as mobile phones or children's furniture. Standards for those coatings are set by innovative companies which demand coatings with a greener image for safety in the home.

The technology used in the development of the polyurethanes dispersion is targeted at the high and luxury end of the market where our customers and end users will see and feel the difference in quality and performance. NeoRez® R-1010 can be tailored by combining the resin with a large number of our well received NeoCryl® acrylic dispersion range or to be crosslinked with suitable crosslinker such as NeoCryl® CX-100 for enhanced performance. The NeoRez® R-1010 will be made in our Waalwijk water based plant and will serve all business segments of DSM NeoResins+.
