Water Dispersible Polycarbonate Diol

VELOX Car Interior
New Duranol™ W8011 is well-suited for soft-feel
coatings, e. g. for high-end car interiors.
  • The polycarbonate diol Duranol™ W8011 is easily dispersible in water 
  • It improves the chemical as well as scratch resistance and the adhesion, softness and self-healing of coatings
  • It is developed by Asahi Kasei and is perfectly suitable as specialty additive for water-based 2K acrylate binder systems (2KPU)
  • It improves adhesion on different substrates, especially aluminum and various plastics
  • Provides increased scratch resistance (also "self-healing") and chemical resistance of coatings
  • Moreover, W8011 can be used for the polyol component of soft-feel coatings and gives excellent sunscreen lotion resistance

Duranol™ W8011 is a high-quality water dispersible polycarbonate diol which can be used as poylol or additive in a wide range of applications. It is especially designed for the use in aqueous industrial coatings as well as wood, plastics, glass and furniture coatings”, states Olaf Knispel, Product Manager CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers) at VELOX.

VELOX will be introducing Duranol™ W8011 at Surfex, taking place in Coventry, UK, from May 22-23, 2018. Asahi Kasei will be co-exhibitor sharing VELOX’ booth 112.
