Cytec launches Resydrol AY6705 waterborne acrylic resin for wood coatings

March 15, 2011

The new generation of Resydrol AY6705 waterborne acrylic modified alkyd resin formulated by Cytec Industries Inc. extends durability with its penetration for timber substrates, making it a good choice for feeding and protecting exterior wood stains and timber decking. Its quick drying time and affinity for timber with varying degrees of tannin content promotes fast and easy recoating. The hybrid system captures the sought after properties of both alkyds and acrylics, according to the company. Its durability is further strengthened by its improved UV resistance. This low VOC resin doesn’t peel, flake nor need sanding or chemical stripping before the next customary repainting time frame, the company said.
