BASF Coatings Japan Ltd. has been awarded a patent for a two-component coating system comprised of  a component (a) comprised of one or more polyisocyanates, a component (b) comprised of one or more oligomeric and/or polymeric compounds that are reactive with component (a), which component (b) has an acid number of up to 30 mg KOH/g, wherein component (b) is comprised of at least one member selected from the group consisting of a polyester having at least two hydroxyl groups or a poly(meth)acrylate having at least two hydroxyl groups; and a component (c) comprised of one or more phosphonates selected from the group consisting of phosphonic diesters and diphosphonic diesters. Where (i) component (b) contains all oligomeric and/or polymeric compounds that are present in the two-component coating system and are reactive with component (a) and (ii) component (b) contains not more than 15% by weight, based on the total weight of component (b), of oligomeric and/or polymeric compounds which carry isocyanate-reactive amino groups; wherein component (c) is capable of reacting with moisture to suppress secondary reactions of polyisocyanates with condensation that give rise to unwanted gelling.
