Providing additional cost savings potential, DuraPlate 6000 has a long pot life
, helping applicators reduce waste material, as well as a 21-day extended recoat window, which helps applicators reduce missed recoats.
Ideal for OEM, repairers and builders within a demanding marketplace, Acrythane 4G has an optimised balance of early hardness, fast cure and long pot life
. Its ultra-fast air-dry properties create process and energy savings for users.
The product provides significant advantages over its competitors, including significantly faster cure rate, extended pot life
, and reduced expense.
In these instances, the mixed pot life
can be measured in days, and the overall cost of the compound can be significantly reduced.
(1) Prototype paint formulae highlight the very fast drying 2K system (<15 min, ambient) and the unique de-coupling of dry time and pot life
(>5 h), expected to trigger new paint and process solutions.
Covestro says the new matrix material can be processed extremely cost-efficiently, thanks to its long pot life
and rapid curing.
Application is aided by low viscosity, which assists in achieving a void-free cure, together with its extended working life which permits a manageable cure process based around a workable one-hour pot life
with room temperature cure within 24 hours.
And most crucially, it ensures longer pot life
due to limited cathode surface burn-off.
"Our new Joncryl FLX two-pack ink technology now allows converters the option to print with water-based inks that have a longer pot life
and lower toxicity ratings than many two-pack water-based systems currently used for these high resistant applications," said Richard Grancike, industry manager--Printing & Packaging, Dispersions and Pigments for BASF in North America.
In addition, it has a pot life
of one hour at room temperature and cures to a translucent elastomer without releasing any by-products.
