Methacrylate monomers for Paints & Coatings
Automotive coatings combine an attractive finish with outstanding protection. Methacrylate resins, with their inherently excellent weatherability and scratch resistance, are ideally associated with diisocyanates to add flexibility to high performance coatings.
High gloss is achieved with high-solids monomers, such as VISIOMER® IBOMA or VISIOMER® c-HMA; they also result in a significant reduction of viscosity and thus excellent leveling. Hydroxyesters like VISIOMER® HEMA and HPMA serve as anchor molecules for crosslinking with polyurethanes.
