DSM to launch new Low Temperature Curing Powder Coating Polyester Resin

Zwolle, NL, 25 Mar 2011 01:00 CET

Following its successful introduction of Uralac® EasyCure™ outdoor grades in 2009, DSM is set to launch the first Uralac EasyCure product designed for indoor applications, Uralac P 3170.

Urlac P 3170, will be launched on March 29th at the upcoming European Coating Show in Nurnberg, Germany.

The innovative and patented Uralac P 3170 is a 70/30 powder coating polyester/epoxy hybrid resin offering a unique combination of benefits. Delivering good flow, non-blooming, and with good storage stability Uralac EasyCure P3170 is breaking ground for the next generation of low temperature curing resins for indoor applications.

Uralac EasyCure P 3170 has been developed especially to solve the persistent challenge of poor appearance due to low temperature curing. Excellent flow is achieved when curing Uralac P 3170 at lower temperatures, matching the flow quality of current resins cured at 20°C higher temperatures.

Patrick Niels, Business Unit Director DSM Coating Resin comment: “Uralac EasyCure P 3170 has been developed in response to a huge market demand for lower temperature powder coatings that reduce the carbon footprint without compromising superior coating properties. This low temperature curing resin technology is one of the most recent developments in a series of DSM innovations, designed to strengthen the competitiveness and potential market growth of powder coatings.’’
