VESTANAT® EP-MF

Silane/Polyurethane-hybrid crosslinker for scratch resistant coatings

VESTANAT® EP-MF grades are solvent free, ready-to-use crosslinkers. They can be used as single binder but they are also compatible with a variety of co-binding agents, such as acrylic polyols. The coatings can be cured at ambient temperature and are suitable for all kinds of substrates.

Benefits at a glance

  • Ready-to-use 1K self crosslinking system
  • Fast curing cycles even at room temperature
  • 100% active ingredient
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Outstanding scratch performance

Applications

  • Scratch resistant wood and metal coatings
  • Impregnating coatings for wooden or mineral substrates

MF Grades

VESTANAT® EP-MF 201 is a solvent free, and ready-to-use crosslinker or self-crosslinking binder. It can be used either as a single binder or in combination with appropriate co-binders. Such low VOC formulations show outstanding scratch and chemical resistance.

VESTANAT EP-MF 202 is a solvent free and ready catalyzed polymethoxysilane. It is used as a crosslinker or sole binder to formulate flexible, highly scratch- and chemical resistant coatings, e. g. highly scratch resistant NISO*2 coatings.

This crosslinker enables coatings with high reactivity and fast return-to-service
times. It makes them conspicuous through short curing cycles at ambient temperature. VESTANAT® EP-MF 203 is the next generation product with
even enhanced drying behavior and scratch resistance.

  • Silane content and crosslinking density are the highest among the MF-range
  • Outstanding scratch and also chemical resistance
  • Solvent-free
  • Touch dry within one hour possible

This crosslinker has a higher content of urethane structures. It offers a
more balanced profile between flexibility and scratch resistance. VESTANAT® EP-MF 204 is the next generation product with greater enhanced drying behavior and
scratch resistance.

  • Increased content of PUR chains
  • Carefully adjusted balance between extraordinary mechanical performance and well tuned flexibility
  • Solvent-free
  • Touch dry times of less then 120 minutes

This crosslinker has the highest flexibility of the entire EP-MF product range. A harmoniously tuned mechanical property profile allows for silyl-polyurethane coatings with good hardness and simultaneously high flexibility.

  • PUR-like flexibility paired with the typical hardness and resistance of the MF Family
  • Touch dry times of 90 minutes possible
  • Moderate silane content for optimum balance between performance and price
