N.Y. (March 31, 2017) – Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (“Momentive”) will present a new non-isocyanate cured silylated polyurethane Y-19243 resin that can help alleviate the need for primers at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Germany, April 4–6. This
polyurethane resin is targeted to enable production of single component (1K) direct-to-metal paints. This new binder resin can help formulations achieve UV durability, flexibility and corrosion resistance that is equivalent to or better than tested 2K isocyanate-containing formulations, while alleviating the need for a
primer to attain adhesion. Applicators of industrial maintenance paints can benefit from the simplicity of a 1K system, while the asset owner can enjoy long lasting durability.
1K formulation paints avoid the critical mixing of two components (2K) at the point of use, thus eliminating the potential for an incorrect ratio of reactants.
Formulations containing Y-19243 resin are capable of curing to hard films with very high flexibility and impact resistance. Such coatings have been shown to maintain high gloss values while displaying very low yellowing, when exposed to extensive QUV-B weathering. They have also
demonstrated better corrosion resistance than a commercially-available 2K polyurethane coating when tested in Momentive’s laboratory.
Momentive’s new non-isocyanate silylated polyurethane resin will be presented at the European Coatings Show during Session 16.4 on Tuesday, April 4, at 11:00 am.
In addition to the new non-isocyanate silylated polyurethane resin, Momentive has a full line of prepolymer products and industry staples such as CoatOSil*, Silblock* and Silquest* products to help meet the demanding needs of today’s coating, adhesive and sealant industry. Momentive will also present its near-zero VOC
epoxy silane oligomer for architectural coatings during session 18.4 at the event. To learn more visit our experts at booth 4-660.
