A new paper from this company summarizes the findings of a comprehensive study that tested 60 coating formulations applied to steel panels. “The Case for Two-Component Waterborne Polyurethane Coatings” was authored by Peter Schmitt, field technical service manager, Coatings, Adhesives and Specialties; Kathy Allen, senior scientist, transportation applications; and Joe Pierce, technical service rep, transportation applications, all of Bayer MaterialScience LLC.

“While Bayer’s raw materials for commercial waterborne coatings can be used on a variety of substrates, such as aluminum, wood, vinyl, polyester, and polyurethane materials, the testing we conducted focused on conditions that would be common on metal substrates in industries like building, construction equipment and automotive,” Schmitt said. “In addition to delivering equivalent performance in all categories tested, in some cases the waterborne coatings demonstrated even better chemical resistance than the standard solventborne coating.”
