ACURE™ – Game Changing New Resin Chemistry for Coatings

ACURE™ is a new, non-isocyanate resin chemistry for coatings based on Michael Addition. Historically the Michael Addition has been too fast and difficult to control for practical use on coatings. Allnex has developed and patented new technology which harnesses ACURE™ ’s speed via use of a unique C02 blocked catalyst and kinetic control additives which give the paint formulator the tools needed to manage ACURE™ ’s use across a number of different applications and application conditions. This proprietary technology gives ACURE™ it’s tagline of “Speed and Control”.

ACURE™ – What’s “Under the Hood”?

Acure molecule diagram

In ACURE™ systems, allnex typically uses a relatively low molecular weight malonated polyester with a relatively low molecular weight acrylate like diTMPTA as its primary Michael Addition reactants. To enable Michael Addition, a strong base catalyst is needed.  To enable Michael Addition’s extremely fast cure and create potlife, allnex blocked the catalyst with carbon dioxide. This approach preserves the inherently fast curing kinetics of Michael Addition while remarkably providing hours of potlife, orders of magnitude beyond those seen in typical 2k isocyanate or other chemistries.

ACURE™ chemistry is further enhanced by the use of kinetic additives which are used to slow the system further, providing the formulator with additional degree’s of control so as to manage coatings properties including open time, appearance in thick films and coating performance in varying environmental conditions.

Alternatives to Polyurethane systems don’t come easily.  ACURE™ provides coatings properties never before seen in the Coatings Industry.  If you’re looking for an Eco Friendly, Green Polyurethane coating system – Acure has arrived.
