Perstorp launching cationic curing boosters at the European Coatings Show

Perstorp - February 13, 2016 - At the European Coatings Show (April 4-6) Perstorp will launch Curalite™, its range of boosters for cationic UV curing formulations, that can increase reaction speeds up to 15 times. Cationic UV curing technology is the perfect choice for printing on challenging surfaces such as plastic substrates or containers, where other technologies could fail.

The spotlight on the Perstorp stand (7A-603) will also be pointed at:

  • The comeback of alkyd resins technology offering low carbon footprint and superior wood protection, in both cases superior to acrylics. With Perstorp’s Voxtar™, carbon footprint of the Alkyd formulation can be reduced up to 80%

  • Intumescent paints, where Perstorp’s Charmor™ is used to provide more time to escape from burning buildings

  • Capa™ 4101, a high performance polyol for tough conditions in two component polyurethane coatings

  • Polyurethane Dispersions and Perstorp’s broad portfolio of building blocks for durable and flexible leather protection

Latest developments in these areas will be discussed by Perstorp experts in four presentations during the show:

  • April 4:
    • 10h50, in Hall 1/Stand 1-131: Caprolactone polyols for high performance coatings

    • 14h10, in Hall 1/Stand 1-131: Spotlight on beautiful alkyds

    • 15h10, in Hall 5/Stand 5-353: Polyurethane dispersions – combining high performance with environmental friendliness

  • April 5:
    • 11h30, in Hall 7/Stand 7-726: Cationic UV Curing - Speeding up reactivity 15x with Curalite™
