March 1, 2013 - Providing water-barrier coating with anti-fogging characteristics, Bomar™ XR-9416 contains no water but is infinitely dilutable. Uncured 100%-solids material has viscosity of 7,000 cP at 25°C and is suited for wood coatings. When water penetrates wood, wood swells at surface and optimizes adhesion of coating without need for separate primer step, resulting in tack-free, tough, flexible coatings with water, chemical, and stain resistance.

Press release date: February 27, 2013

Dymax Oligomers & Coatings’ new water-dilutable oligomer, Bomar™ XR-9416, represents a breakthrough in technology.  This material exhibits substantial water resistance after cure, a property standard waterborne materials do not have.  This oligomer’s water resistance results in a water-barrier coating that has anti-fogging characteristics.  The 100%-solids, uncured material has a lower viscosity (7,000 cP at 25°C) when compared to standard waterborne materials, and it contains no water but is infinitely dilutable.  No sophisticated equipment is needed to dilute the product – hand mixing is sufficient.  Customers can also expect a significant cost savings because no water or solvent needs to be shipped. 

Water-dilutable oligomers are ideally suited for wood coatings.  When water penetrates the wood, the wood swells at the surface and improves the adhesion of the coating without the need for a separate primer step, resulting in tack-free, tough, flexible coatings with excellent water, chemical, and stain resistance.  Other substrates demonstrating good adhesion are ABS, acrylic, aluminum, cold rolled steel, glass, and stainless steel.  After cure, tack-free, tough, and flexible coatings are formed with excellent water, chemical, and stain resistance.
