CYTEC SURFACE SPECIALTIES
LAUNCHES NEW UV WATERBORNE PRODUCTS
Cytec Surface Specialties, Inc. has added two new waterborne
UV-curable resins for wood coatings to its Ucecoat
line. Ucecoat 7849 is designed to cost-effectively meet the
most rigorous requirements for wood flooring, furniture
and cabinetry topcoats, according to the company. The
product offers good adhesion to a wide variety of woods,
cork and paper, and provides good flexibility, stain and
scratch resistance.
Ucecoat 6558 is a waterborne aliphatic urethane acrylate
for primer formulations. Depending on the substrate
and coat weight, it offers the advantage of potentially
eliminating the flash-off step since the water can be partially
absorbed into the wood, and mostly evaporated by
the heat of the UV lamps. More info: Cytec Surface
