Sancure™ polyurethanes are water-borne dispersions designed to enhance the properties of a wide range of substrates including wood, plastics, metal, and textiles. The Sancure brand represents a coatings technology of choice for many markets and applications due to its wide range of toughness, flexibility, and resistance properties.
For wood surfaces, Sancure polyurethane dispersions, composites and hybrids are the first choice for protection from the environment in flooring, furniture and exterior applications, as either 1 component or 2 component finishes. Sancure polyurethanes are often an integral part of tough, long lasting, beautiful wood finishes. The Sancure product line can also be blended with Carboset® acrylic resins to meet many performance and cost requirements. Sancure technology delivers core properties that enable wood coatings to be more durable, easy to use and environmentally conscious.
For performance textiles, Sancure polyurethane dispersions are used in formulated solutions that demand a balance of physical, chemical and processing characteristics. In diverse textile types (knits, wovens, non-wovens), Sancure technology helps formulators meet coating challenges for diverse textile applicaitons, such as apparel, upholstery, household furnishings, transportation, protective, and technical.
For graphic arts and flexible packaging applications, Sancure polyurethane dispersions bring excellent physical properties for water-borne systems, offering a variety of solutions to formulators to meet complex formulating issues. Sancure products balance adhesion and physical resistances, such as heat sealability, chemical, stain or abrasion resistance with flexibility and surface toughness. Performance characteristics can be further enhanced through blending with Carboset acrylic resins.
For metal, Sancure aliphatic polyurethane dispersions deliver tremendous chemical and alkali resistance when used in paints and coatings. Sancure is also used as a primary and co-blending resin in metal coating applications requiring high gloss, UV durability, and strong abrasion resistance. Exterior applications include topcoats for OEM equipment in agricultural and construction equipment (ACE), appliance, oil & gas, infrastructure, and commercial construction. Interior automotive applications include surface coatings requiring soft feel and appeal as well as outstanding resistance to surface cleaners, sunscreens, and insect repellants.
