Waterborne resins are your Coatings of the Future!

Covestro solutions meet these targets and move users beyond basic specifications to the next generation of must have performance attributes:

  • Increased coating thickness allows for fewer coats and better manufacturing efficiency. 
  • Three times less volatile organic compounds with performance characteristics that match solvent-based resins.
  • Energy savings with at least 50% less oven time to remove the water, and reduced carbon footprint from manufacturing efficiencies.

“Solutions built on principles of sustainability that meet our customers and their customers’ needs are a core tenet at Covestro.”

Aaron Lockhart

Sector Head, Industrial Coatings, North America, Covestro LLC

What challenges do coatings manufacturers who apply coatings face?

  • Everchanging Regulations
  • Permitting challenges are preventing expansion needs  
  • Increasing costs of energy and personnel
  • Loss of experienced employees
  • SG&A Goals
  • Reduced capital budgets
  • Changing competitive environment

“Coaters are seeking improvements in factory efficiency. One of our water-based solutions offers up to a 50-60% improvement in line speed while maintaining other key performance properties of the end use product.”

Mike Jeffries

Business Development Manager, Industrial Coatings, North America, Covestro LLC

Does meeting a performance specification meet these challenges?  

Not necessarily. Let’s move you beyond just meeting performance specs to:

  • Accelerate your production
  • Increase application thickness and reduce the need for additional coats
  • Shorten drying lines leading to energy savings
  • Provide faster damage free stacking and packing
  • Increase resin stability reducing waste
  • Allow production expansion without major capital expenditures

How can resin and coatings suppliers address the challenges of the end user?

Our SOLUTIONS:
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase throughput
  • Reduce work
  • Reduce energy use
  • Reduce carbon
  • Eliminate substances of high concern
  • Reduce environmental impact
