Vencorex @ ACS 2014

On April 8-10 2014 Vencorex will attend the American Coating Show (ACS) at Atlanta, the largest coating event in US.


 Vencorex will present a wide range of isocyanates and solutions that facilitates the development of more environmentally-friendly technologies such as:


  • Tolonate™ aliphatic polyisocyanates crosslinkers for high-performance polyurethane coatings & adhesives, which offer exceptional durability and non-yellowing properties upon ageing, with high solids, low VOC options
  • Based on a unique patented technology, the Easaqua™ grades are self-emulsifiable polyisocyanates, used as crosslinkers of effective environmentally-friendly waterborne polyurethane alternatives to conventional solvent-based coatings.
  • HDI and IPDI isocyanate monomers, essential building blocks for polyurethane dispersions (PUD)


“Although Vencorex is a company with a new name, it has a long history of being one of the top polyurethane suppliers in the world.  We are excited to be at the ACS and to show our current and future customers the innovations and new technologies we have developed.  Exhibitions such as this show are still one of the most important communication channels to promote our products” said Shane Steelman Marketing and Sales Director North America for Vencorex
