There is still no end in sight for the continuing success story of modern polyurethane coatings formulations. On a very high performance level, important improvements in PUR coatings for most demanding applications are constantly being researched and marketed. Yet higher performance, cost reduction and environmental and legislative compliance constitute the key drivers of these developments. Thus, VOC-free yet high performing waterborne systems as well as coatings containing no free isocyanates are being put forward. This conference gathers PUR coating developers and users to learn about and scrutinize the latest technical developments in the field.
Not a polyurethane expert yet? Our tutorial "Fundamentals on polyurethane coatings" aims to make you one, and to enable you to follow the top-level presentations during the main conference competently. The tutorial will explain to you the basic conceptions and chemistries that are at work in polyurethane coatings- in solventborne, waterborne or radiation curing systems, for the most important applications.
