NEXT TUESDAY ! Don’t miss the date !!
Vencorex @ Western Coating Show 21 (17-20 October), Las Vegas, USA
Marc Cornick will present on Tuesday 19th Of October at 10:15 am (Meeting Room Champagne 2) :
“Novel Polyisocyanates For Flexibilizing Polyurea Coatings”
Polyisocyanates are widely used as building blocks together with polyols to form polyurethanes. These materials find use in a variety of applications due to their excellent durability, and mechanical properties. However, a large number of polyurethane formulations are solvent-borne and decreasing the amount of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) can be challenging. Solvent-free technologies are one solution. Among these, polyurea formulations (reaction of polyisocyanates with polyamines instead of polyols) are of high interest, especially polyaspartic ester formulations.
The reaction of polyamines with polyisocyanates is much faster compared to polyols. This generally improves the drying and curing time but can unfavorably impact other parameters such as the pot life of the formulation. One additional issue with polyurea formulations can be a high level of brittleness.
Fortunately, the properties of such formulations can be fine-tuned by adjusting the starting materials. Different polyaspartic ester resins can be used having different reactivities and levels of rigidity, however it possible to further optimize these formulations by also adjusting the type of polyisocyanate used.
This presentation will look at the benefits that can be achieved through the use of novel polyisocyanate technologies, particularly with regard to improving the flexibility and pot life of the final coating.

Vencorex is pleased to announce the launch of its new Tolonate™ X F 450.
The new Tolonate™ X F 450 is a solvent free and low viscosity polyisocyanate based on HDI. This Tolonate™ is part of flexible polyisocyanate range developed by Vencorex specifically to provide elasticity to your coatings while maintaining high hardness.
It is especially suitable for fast drying formulations like aliphatic polyureas and polyaspartics, where it will overcome their brittleness and provide extended pot-life.
Tolonate™ X F 450 is a very versatile polyisocyanate that can be used alone or in combination with other hardeners, to effectively fine-tune the curing time and flexibility of the formulation.
In addition, the remarkable low viscosity of Tolonate™ X F 450 is of particular interest to develop a broad range of ultra-low VOC formulations.
Tolonate™ X F 450, new solvent-free and low viscosity aliphatic polyisocyanate, will be launched via a free webinar on the 7th of June 2021 at 3 pm (CET).
Are you struggling to improve the elasticity of your aliphatic polyurea or polyaspartics coatings while maintaining high hardness and low VOC?
Discover the new Tolonate™ X F 450 solvent-free and low viscosity polyisocyanate that will be presented by Vencorex team on June 7, 2021 from 3 pm to 4 pm (CET) during an exclusive webinar hosted by European Coatings.

In a very challenging context, the newly established cooperation between Vencorex France and Radka Polska has proved successful: 10 months after its nomination as Vencorex official Distributor for the Polish market, Radka has achieved significant milestones in terms of market development, particularly in the car refinish and flooring markets.
Vencorex products recommended for use in these areas have been fully approved by several new customers, who found attractive material performances to fuel their own growth in these applications.
“It is very valuable for us to have Vencorex as a Partner in aliphatic isocyanate business across Poland” – said Petr Zelenka – Radka CEO and Owner.
“It feels good to have Radka on board. We have together entered into a very challenging year, but the result obtained so far convinced us that we have made the right choice of partner for the Polish distribution market. With this new energy and their local market knowledge we will deliver a strong support to our local customers” – concluded Bengt Arheden EMEA Sales Director in Vencorex.
Both companies are confident about the local market outlook and will continue to combine forces to best support Polish customers and their businesses.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their valuable cooperation and to wish them every success on the PU coatings market;
We would also like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
