Door and window frames, radiators, and wood furnishings all have one thing in common: when metal and wood coatings need a fresh, new look, the elegant brilliance of varnishes lends a refined touch that will enhance any home. Low-solvent, one-component varnishes are particularly good for home and interior applications. In addition to their neutral odor and environmental impact, they are also convenient products for do-it-yourself projects — ready-to-use straight from the can. And DIYers are more than just a small segment of the population, in fact, according to a statistic, global sales of DIY and home improvement products in 2018 were around 594 billion euros, and the trend is rising (Source: Statista).
VESTANAT® E 95, a new silane/polyurethane hybrid crosslinker from Evonik’s Crosslinkers business line, allows its customers in the paints and coatings industry to formulate exceptionally powerful yet low-emission, one-component varnishes suitable for use in professional and non-professional applications alike.
Coatings formulated with VESTANAT® E 95 are very easy to work with: they cure at room temperature and are dry within just one hour, making them ready for use in a short period of time. Coatings containing the new hybrid crosslinker also exhibit excellent scratch resistance and considerable elasticity — gone are the days of handling finishes with kid gloves.
