Polyaspartic Resins Deliver Durable Coatings

Aal Chem now carries polyaspartic ester polyurea resins that work as a reactive partner with polyisocyanates to create two component polyurea/urethane clear coats.

Polyaspartic resins blend well with isocyanates for a stronger, more durable finish. The noted features they provide exterior coatings are weather and yellow resistance, zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and fewer coats need be applied providing greater efficiency. End-users find freedom in a fast dry time, and it can be easily applied with regular equipment even though it has a high solid content. Added advantages of using polyaspartic esters is the flexibility to design the reactivity to accommodate for batch mixing and application, control over the cure rate when added to aliphatic coatings, and the ability to change the reaction time to extend the pot-life. Basically, it can be customized to the needs of the application. The five polyaspartic ester polyurea resins in the series are detailed below.
