Water-based polyurethane coatings for eco-friendly door panels
Automotive OEMs and their suppliers continue to seek material solutions with future-oriented and more sustainable properties, without compromising on performance or quality.
Covestro’s door panel exhibit demonstrates how this challenge can be solved. With its INSQIN water-based polyurethane (PU) coatings, the company offers translucent optical properties, coating adhesion and deep color effects in door panel covers. This aqueous, low-VOC solution has been developed specifically to enable more cost-effective and sustainable applications for the future requirements of car interiors.
Since no solvent has to be washed out after the INSQIN coating is applied, automotive OEMs can use up to 95% less water compared with substances produced using solvents.
INSQIN’s lower CO₂ emissions and energy consumption can reduce the total CO₂ balance of synthetic material by up to 45% and offer a nearly odorless indoor air quality. The CO₂ balance can be further improved by using Impranil CQ DLU, which consists of approximately 35 wt. % renewable carbon.
Covestro will be showcasing its newest INSQIN coatings and other future-oriented material solutions at the expo.
