Lubrizol Launches Turbosetâ„¢ 2027 PUD to Enhance the Performance of Wood Coatings

Published on 2012-12-06. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND -- The Lubrizol Corporation has introduced Turboset™ 2027, an NMP-free, self-crosslinking polyurethane composite dispersion formulated to enhance the performance of interior wood coatings used on floors and furniture, as well as select sealers, without requiring additional crosslinkers.

Turboset 2027 has been designed to elevate wood coating performance in the key areas of durability and wear resistance. While similar to its forerunner, Turboset 2025, Turboset 2027 is distinguished by its unique NMP-, NEP- and APEO-free chemistry making it an ideal solution for coatings intended for the global market and when health or environmental matters are considerations. In addition Turboset 2027 is a high-solids polymer, 40% by weight, and can be paired with a wide variety of cosolvents for greater opportunities to develop formulations for the world's diverse markets.

"As a self-crosslinking composite dispersion, Turboset 2027 generates more options for formulation and cosolvent selection," said Dr. Peter Bloyce, Global Business Manager, Lubrizol Performance Coatings. "Its NMP-free, high-solids platform is compatible with environmental compliance requirements and global acceptance. Consequently formulators have great flexibility in meeting the evolving VOC standards of various markets. Formulations containing Turboset 2027 are also available that meet European VOC requirements."

Turboset 2027 offers impressive performance qualities with exceptional durability and resistance to chemicals and overall wear. Test results for black heel mark protection and hardness have also been on a very high level. In addition, gloss retention was comparable to high-VOC dispersions containing NMP. Crosslinking with a polyisocyanate, while not required, can be used to provide further improvement of performance regarding black heel mark, chemical and scratch resistance. The film cure speed of Turboset 2027 is also a significant benefit.

Turboset™ is a trademark of The Lubrizol Corporation.
