Desmodur® eco makes bio-based clearcoat competitive
As one of the largest coating manufacturers worldwide, PPG Industries Europe Sàrl is constantly looking for innovative solutions aimed at achieving the highest quality standards while respecting the environment. Looking back at a long and fruitful business relationship, PPG and Covestro were excited to renew their collaboration for a very ambitious project: the invention of a high-performance refinish clearcoat based on renewable materials.
In times of growing electro mobility, we want to succeed in establishing eco-friendly alternatives to traditionally used materials.
With Desmodur® eco, we are using a bio-based hardener in our clearcoat for the first time. In terms of both the application process and the required capabilities, this hardener delivers a high performance that does not differ from conventional solutions on the market!
