ACURE™ AQ – Fast curing waterborne 2K without popping
INTRODUCTION OF OUR ACURE™ WATERBORNE SYSTEM
With ACURE™ AQ we’re introducing a waterborne version of this revolutionary technology. This platform offers similar advantages like faster cure, long pot-life and improved product safety profile in comparison to waterborne 2K PU.
The key distinguishing feature is that this system does not suffer from reactive blistering or so called popping, which offers a massive gain in quality of finish as applicators do not have to worry about film thickness.

PERFORMANCE AND SUSTAINABILITY
ACURE™ AQ provides the industry with a unique waterborne solution for transport and heavy-duty coatings. Issues with pot-life and popping related paint defects of two component PU systems all belong to the past. Dust free and tack free times can be cut by 70% at room temperature, which generates a huge potential for energy savings and CO2 emissions for systems which are forced cure today. The VOC of a coating can be as low as 135g/L which is almost half of other industrial two component systems.
ALL LAYER’S APPROACH
As part of the allnex in all layer's approach we have tested ACURE™ AQ over our fast curing and high-performance water-based epoxy primer formulations for optimal system performance. We have tested our products in most commonly used application tests, so our customers know they are able to formulate and meet end-user requirements. There is reduced risk for workers handling the coating as it is non skin sensitizing and does not make use of toxic organo-tin catalysts.
Coated items can be stored outside in the rain within 2 hours after coating, as the coating provides excellent early water resistance, no visible marks will remain even after 24 hours of water exposure. The possibility for early handling and transport keeps production lines moving, without the need for additional storage space.
