Huntsman to Launch New Coatings Products at European Coatings Show (ECS)

Huntsman will launch three new products at the European Coatings Show (ECS), highlighting its team’s ingenuity and the confidence formulators can gain from creating coatings with its chemistries. 

The new products set for launch at ECS 2023 include POLYRESYST® IC6005 polyurethane system – a novel intumescent coating developed for the construction industry that can provide passive fire performance alongside strong protective properties. 

Suitable for use on a variety of substrates, POLYRESYST® IC6005 polyurethane system can offer improved chemical resistance, water resistance and durability. Spray applied, at any desired thickness, the coating cures quickly and has a very fast drying time. It also contains no added solvents and has low VOC levels, for lower impact on air quality, human health, and the environment. Huntsman will also introduce a new bio-based coating system.

In addition, Huntsman will launch a new mono-polyether amine, JEFFAMINE® M-3085 amine, which has a higher molecular weight than the commonly used JEFFAMINE® M-2070 amine and JEFFAMINE® M-1000 amine. The new amine can be used as a raw material for the synthesis of pigment dispersants or as a building block in reactive surfactants used in the emulsification or dispersion processes of epoxy resins in water.

Visitors to Huntsman’s booth at ECS can see its new POLYRESYST® IC6005 system on an I-beam, a cross laminated timber panel and a series of tiles.

Visitors will also be able to discover more about Huntsman’s extensive range of polyetheramines including formulation essentials such as the mono-functional JEFFAMINE® M 2070 polyetheramine, which can be used as a reactive dispersant. 

In addition, ECS attendees will be able to hear first-hand from Huntsman’s coatings experts:

  • On Tuesday 28 March, Steven Buvens, Application Specialist, will deliver a speaker paper on ‘The use of mono-functional polyetheramines in waterborne epoxy resins’ (13:30 to 14:00 in Session 22 in the St Petersburg Room).
  • On Wednesday 29 March, Stefan Priemen, Technical Manager will deliver a product presentation on “Novel Fast Curing Intumescent Polyurethane Coating System” (10:30 to 10:50 in Hall 5 / Booth 243).
