DSM advances its Uralac® polyester resins for Dry Blend Matt powder coating finishes

Zwolle, NL, 08 Apr 2010 02:00 CEST

As a result of its continuous innovation efforts in polyester resins, DSM Powder Coating Resins today announced the introduction of two new resins that provide improvement on several properties of dry blend powder. Customers’ demand for matt finishes has led DSM to develop a resin system which combines good mechanical properties and outdoor durability with excellent gloss consistency.

Uralac® P 837 (3% HAA) and Uralac P 877 (7% HAA) are both designed for dry blend powder coating formulations with the following improved properties compared to existing systems: increased outdoor durability, higher impact resistance, improved flow properties, better gloss consistency. This, in addition to a reduced sparkling effect and good blanching properties, makes these two DSM products meet the demands of customers working with dry blend systems for matt coatings.

Patrick Niels, Business Unit Director DSM Powder Coating Resins comments: “To respond to the increasing market requirements for matt systems in the Industrial and Architectural segments DSM Powder Coating Resins developed Uralac P 837 & Uralac P 877. This resin combination provides a unique set of properties for matt powder coating applications.”
