Excalibur Paint & Coatings launches Aqua-Thane.
Excalibur Paint & Coatings' has introduced Aqua-Thane, a
patent pending, 2K water-borne acrylic polyurethane technology. Test
results to date have concluded that this environmentally friendly, low
VOC (less than 50 grams/liter) HAPS-free system meets or exceeds the
performance properties of high performance solvent-borne systems. Film
build of 4-8 mils wet is achieved without foaming, gassing or flow
problems. Aqua-Thane exhibits depth of image, abrasion, solvent and
chemical resistance including Skydrol, yet maintains hardness and is
flexible. It has good adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces including
steel, aluminum, galvanized metals (both electroplated and hot--dipped),
various stainless steel, PVC and carbon/fiberglass composites. For
ferrous and non-ferrous substrate, abrasive blasting is not required
prior to application.
