DSM Powder Coating Resins launches New Technology Platform

Published on 2008-09-26. Author : SpecialChem

ZWOLLE, The Netherlands -- DSM Powder Coating Resins launched Uralac® Corres - a new technology platform, based on breakthrough innovative polyester resins for corrosion protective coatings. The first product from this line, Uralac® P 7604 is specifically developed for top coat and primer applications and provides exceptionally good corrosion protection in metal coating.

For top coat applications, the unique Uralac® Corres technology offers the possibility to significantly reduce and sometimes completely eliminate chemical pre-treatment steps. What this means for professional coaters is that with Uralac® Corres the metal coating process can be made easier.

This new technology brings another big advantage to the coating process. Through the reduction of pre-treatment chemicals used, less process waste is created, and so Uralac® Corres can contribute to a significant reduction of the metal coating process impact on the environment.

Formulated as a primer, Uralac® Corres can replace epoxy. The performance of epoxy-free Uralac® Corres is equal to or better than conventional epoxy-based systems, but with a much better environmental footprint. As additional benefit Uralac® Corres reduces the risk of delaminating between layers - a traditional drawback of epoxy-based primers.

Whether used as a top coat, or as a primer application Uralac® Corres is a polyester resin for corrosion protective coatings that increases operational efficiency in an eco-friendly way.

Patrick Niels, Business Unit Director DSM Powder Coating Resins comments: " We specifically developed Uralac® Corres to respond to the growing market demand for more environmental friendly coating systems. Uralac® Corres stands for eco-friendliness and superior performance and opens a new window of opportunity for corrosion protective coatings. Its introduction will further strengthen our position as leading sustainable supplier to the powder coating industry."
