New waterborne UV resins for wood coatings

August 11, 2005

Surface Specialties, Inc. has extended
its Ucecoat product line with two new
waterborne UV-curable resins for wood
Ucecoat 7849 is designed to costeffectively
meet the most rigorous
requirements for wood flooring, furniture
and cabinetry topcoats. The product
offers outstanding adhesion to a
wide variety of woods, cork and paper,
and provides good flexibility, stain and
scratch resistance. It can also provide a
tack-free surface before cure after water
evaporation, according to the company.
Ucecoat 6558 is a waterborne
aliphatic urethane acrylate that was
developed within the range to ensure
superb results in primer formulations
with incomparable wood wetting. Also,
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: Surface Specialties
