Our PUR coatings are the premium topcoat solution in the Agriculture, Construction and Earthmoving (ACE) market. They provide long-lasting, extremely durable performance along with great aesthetics, sustainability and an attractive price performance ratio. In addition, our innovative Pasquick coating technology improves productivity by reducing the number of layers required.
Large vehicles of all types take a beating and construction trucks and other ACE heavy duty equipment are no exception. The fact that this machinery is continuously exposed to extremely harsh environments necessitates high-performance coatings that provide excellent adhesion, hardness, flexibility, chip resistance and superior corrosion protection. We deliver proven resins and hardeners used in primers, topcoats and clearcoats for large heavy-duty vehicles and ACE equipment. Our polyurethane coating raw materials – Desmodur® polyisocyanates and Desmophen® polyether polyols for solventborne polyurethanes, and Bayhydur® polyisocyanates and Bayhydrol® (A and U) dispersions product ranges – help protect vehicles of all kinds. The fact that these materials are water-based means that they are more sustainable too and offer high compliance with regulations related to volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Enabling one- and two-layer vehicle coating systems
Heavy-duty vehicle OEM coatings are typically two-layer systems but, in some applications, there’s a growing trend toward single-layer-coatings (direct-to-metal or DTM), primarily because of time considerations. These coatings, based on polyurethane (PU), combine the corrosion-protection properties of a classic primer with the surface properties of a classic topcoat.
Ultra-durable: Resistant to impact, corrosion, scratching, UV and chemicals.
Fast drying: Dries rapidly at room temperature as well as elevated temperatures.
Long lasting: Good gloss and color retention.
High performance: Provide excellent adhesion, hardness, flexibility and chip resistance.
Sustainable: Meets regulations due to water-base and low volatile organic compounds content.
