PU: waterbased systems dominate parquet flooring

Polyurethane-based coatings have been used for manual parquet flooring for some time now. Dr. Christof Irle, 2K waterborne coatings expert at Bayer MaterialScience, comments on the dominance ofwaterbased systems and mentions new raw materials and formulations for this area. R&D activities are currently focusing solutions to eliminate or reduce solvents emissions.

Dispersing carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes are an exciting material, says Dr. Michael Berkei, Lab-Manager Nanotechnology at Byk-Chemie GmbH. The material exhibits interesting properties and can functionalise coatings in termsof mechanical reinforcement, anti-static properties and conductivity. Carbon nanotubes tend to agglomerate, though. To achieve a high impact, the tubes need to be homogeneously distributed inside thecoating. Therefore, the right dispersion technique is needed.
