Bayer Show Efficient Application of Flexible Floor Coatings

27th January 2015 0 comments

At the European Coatings Show from 21-23 April, 2015 in Nuremberg, Germany, Bayer MaterialScience is presenting new polyaspartic raw materials for solvent-free coating formulations that can be applied with a roller. < According to Bayer, these coatings are so flexible that they can even bridge cracks that have formed in concrete. This property is particularly important for floor coating applications in the outdoor areas of buildings.  " In applications like this, cracks can form over time if the concrete dries out and shrinks, for instance, or if the ground moves,” said Karl H. Wührer, Head of Development for Structural Coatings at Bayer MaterialScience. Bayer says, without a protective coating, moisture can penetrate the concrete and cause frost damage. Balconies, roof gardens and loggias are also exposed to sunlight and weathering. What’s more, they are often subject to significant mechanical stresses. “For that reason, the supporting concrete substrate needs to have a lightfast, resistant coating that prevents moisture from entering the material,” explains Wührer.
