New speciality polyol for water-based soft-feel coatings and various applications-polycarbonate diol

VELOX GmbH, a leading pan-European distributor of raw material specialities and solutions provider for the plastics, composites, additives, rubber and paints & coatings industries, is now offering customers across Europe a new, unique additive developed by its long-term partner Asahi Kasei Corporation. The polycarbonate diol DuranolTM W8011 is easily dispersible in water. It improves the chemical as well as scratch resistance and the adhesion, softness and self-healing of coatings.

“DuranolTM 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.

DuranolTM W8011 is a polycarbonate diol developed by Asahi Kasei and is perfectly suitable as speciality additive for water-based 2K acrylate binder systems (2KPU). It improves adhesion on different substrates, especially aluminum and various plastics. It also 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.

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