Allnex Introduces UCECOAT® 7856 - A New Tin-free Waterborne UV Resin for Single Coat Mirror Effect Coating



Brussels, December 15, 2014 –– Allnex introduces UCECOAT® 7856 - a new waterborne energy curable polyurethane dispersion developed to deliver high gloss mirror effect coatings.

The development of UCECOAT 7856 was driven by the growing trend for no or low VOC coatings providing high gloss properties. While conventional waterborne systems usually show poor mirror image after one-coat application, UCECOAT 7856 allows the formulation of high gloss clear coats with superior distinctness of image obtained by single coat application.

“UCECOAT 7856 is ideal for spray applications and  its low polymer tack facilitates the handling of the coated panels before curing and reduces dust pick-up as well as surface defects”  states Marie-Astrid Goes, Marketing Manager. “Furthermore, this high solid waterborne UV resin has excellent stability and shows excellent scratch resistance and good chemical resistance, which are particularly important for topcoat applications” she concludes.
