Polyurethane dispersions are the binder of choice in many more coatings applications than you might imagine.

Water-based polyurethane dispersions put the stain-resistance in automotive interior plastic paints, the lubricity in fly-fishing line coatings, the durability in general aviation hanger floors, and the crispness in sail cloth.

They come with a wide variety of performance characteristics that allow the formulator to fine tune the preferred coating properties. In fact, if you haven’t imagined polyurethanes in your formulation, you’re missing the opportunity to impart abrasion- and chemical-resistance, toughness, flexibility and a lustrous finish to your coating.

Hauthane Polyurethane Dispersions are available in:

Aromatic Grades

Based on unsaturated isocyanates, these grades are very economical, but yellow with exposure to UV light.

HD-3011
L-2063
Laminating Adhesive Grades

Designed for laminating film to paper, film to film and film to foil composites.

L-2183
L-2245
L-2255
HD-2001
HD-4664
Polycarbonate-Based (NMP-Containing)

Provide superior hydrolytic stability versus polyester and polyether-based grades in standard hydrolysis testing.

HD-2501
HD-2503
HD-2504
On-Functional Grades

Intended for use in 2-part coatings systems with water-dispersible isocyanates.

HD-6000
HD-6002
L-2883
L-2996
Water-Based, UV-Curable Grades
HD-2602
L-2857
L-3466
Co-Solvent Free Grades

Provide the formulator with a very low VOC content base resin. Some grades will require the addition of co-solvent to attain optimal film formation at ambient temperatures.

HD-4664
HD-4669
HD-4675
L-2245
L-2255
L-2337
L-3528

Flame Retardant Grades

Polymer chains contain unleachable, halogen components to reduce flame spread on coated textiles. Coatings based on these products provide true color capability.

HD-2313
HD-2334
L-3192
Polyester-Based Grades (NMP-Containing)

Contain n-methyl pyrrolidone co-solvent. Generally, polyester-based grades offer enhanced chemical and stain-resistance properties over polyether-based products.
