kostron pays attention to the research of polyurethane dispersion and its application in adhesives Application in coatings may 24, 2019 a user of the school of Applied Natural Sciences of the University of technology of Cologne can check through the database that 1.3 billion tons of food are wasted or consumed worldwide every year. Read the original data. The new research project is studying how to further improve the performance of polymer aqueous dispersion. Polymer aqueous dispersion is a liquid raw material for the production of paints, coatings, adhesives and other daily-use products. The project, entitled "Application Research of dispersed colloidal polymers", is funded by the German Federal Ministry of education and Research (BMBF) for three years. The total project amount is about 600000 euros
covestro is one of the two industrial partners of the project. Kostron is the world's leading supplier of polyurethane dispersions (puds), and is also in a leading position in R & D and process technology
industry trends: water based coatings and adhesives
kostron coatings Michael Friede, global head of adhesives and specialty products, said: "paint and adhesive manufacturers around the world are increasingly inclined to use more sustainable aqueous systems (such as puds) to replace solvent based products, because they have the same excellent performance. Our comprehensive product range has multiple uses in various industries. This will create growth opportunities for our customers and enhance their competitiveness."
Dr. Jan weikard, an expert on polyurethane dispersions at covestro, hopes that the new research cooperation will promote the further development of these dispersions: "the goal of this project is to optimize the production process, improve the understanding of the structure performance relationship, and develop new application fields for dispersions. We focus on the application research of polyurethane dispersions, and are committed to bringing new products to the market quickly to meet the growing demand."
widely used in industry
poly two sheet data can be combined with other experimental data. Urethane dispersion is mainly composed of water and polyurethane finely dispersed in it. It is mainly used as film-forming agent or adhesive for automotive initial paint and touch-up paint, wood and furniture paint and solid floor paint, as well as textile paint and glass fiber paint. With dispercoll ® The adhesive made of U series polyurethane dispersion is used in the production of furniture, shoes and automobile industry
until the end of 2017, covestro's polyurethane dispersion units in domagen and Barcelona in Europe were not put into production. The expansion of production capacity in these two places and in other regions (especially China) will enable the company to meet the growing demand of the global coating and adhesive general plastic testing machine industry with small tonnage
