The polycarbonate diol Duranol W8011 is easily dispersible in water. It improves the chemical as well as scratch resistance and the adhesion, softness and self-healing of coatings.
“Duranol W8011 is a high-quality water dispersible polycarbonate diol which can be used as poylol or additive in a wide range of applications. It is especially designed for the use in aqueous industrial coatings as well as wood, plastics, glass and furniture coatings,” said Olaf Knispel, product manager CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers) at VELOX.
Duranol W8011 is a polycarbonate diol developed by Asahi Kasei and is perfectly suitable as specialty additive for water-based 2K acrylate binder systems (2KPU). It improves adhesion on different substrates, especially aluminum and various plastics. It also provides increased scratch resistance (also "self-healing") and chemical resistance of coatings. Moreover, W8011 can be used for the polyol component of soft-feel coatings and gives sunscreen lotion resistance.
