Bayer MaterialScience introduces new waterborne dispersion for wood and furniture coatings
Article Type: New products From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 39, Issue 1
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Bayer MaterialScience has introduced a new member of its proven line of Bayhydrol products for one-component coating systems. The new addition is Bayhydrol AH XP 2741, the first of a new range of high-molecular-weight, polyacrylate dispersions for coating wood and furniture.
The new Bayhydrol AH XP 2741 resin, which is solvent-free, is particularly well suited for the formulation of low- to no-VOC, one-component coatings for indoor wood floors and furniture. Clearcoats formulated with this waterborne styrene-acrylate copolymer highly accentuate the wood's grain and provide good chemical resistance. This universal resin can be used to easily formulate primers and high- or semi-gloss coatings. It can be used in combination with polyurethane dispersions (PUDs) as well as UV-cured coatings.
“Introducing this new polyacrylate dispersion enables Bayer to offer yet one more solution for developing long lasting, tough floor and furniture coatings,” said Pete Schmitt, a Bayer MaterialScience LLC expert for waterborne coating systems. “It once again extends our ability to offer formulators a new tool to meet the ever higher expectations of today's high performance coatings.”
