Water-Based Polyurethane Coatings: Overcoming Formulation Hurdles and Optimizing Performance

47 Day(s) left to register

Thursday Aug 29, 2024

Dodge all your water-based polyurethane challenges from water sensitivity ruining optimal performance to Poor film formation and poor color stability caused by UV radiation and more. Join this course to get a one-stop answer to all formulation challenges( hydrolysis, coalescence, poor film formation, adhesion....), navigate changes in regulations to ensure your coatings meet industry requirements, and balance performance with cost considerations.

Join coatings expert Patricia Geleen in this simulated live, as she:

  1. Elevates your expertise in water-based polyurethane coatings, mastering the challenges that often stump even seasoned formulators.
  2. Helps you master the selection of PU raw materials for your application (Metal coatings, wood coatings, paper and textile, adhesives or printing inks).
  3. Explains how to meet all regulations (VOC limits, occupational exposure limits, Proposition 65....) regarding water-based polyurethanes varying by region and application.
