February 11, 2009

Henkel Corp. has introduced two versatile and durable translucent aliphatic waterborne urethane resins used for formulating industrial water-based coatings. Henkel SF18 and SF26 can be used in the formulation of high performance wood, vinyl, metal and concrete coatings. They are solvent-free resins that offer superior hardness, high gloss and chemical and abrasion resistance properties. Henkel SF18 and SF26 are single-component, ultra-low VOC products that meet the strict requirements for formulating green coatings. Floor coatings formulated with these resins are non-yellowing, have the appearance and durability of solventborne coatings and can be applied with virtually no odor, according to the company.
