Sovermol® 830 for 2K PU: New bio-based polyol

In floor coatings, we are facing challenges such as emission reduction, chemical resistance, and durability. Our new, natural oil-based polyol, in combination with polyisocyantates as 2K PU system, is the sustainable and versatile answer!

Sovermol® 830 is the latest member of BASF’s family of high-quality, bio-based polyols sold under the Sovermol® trademark. This new polyol is tailored for 2K PU applications such as indoor concrete flooring, adhesives, or pipeline coatings with drinking water contact. The product contains over 90% renewable content and enables extremely low-emission 2K PU coatings.

Due to a specific chemical modification, this polyether-ester polyol has excellent hydrophobicity allowing excellent curing properties, even in challenging curing environments with high humidity and temperatures. Due to its high filling levels and low processing viscosity, Sovermol® 830 helps to lower the overall cost of a formulation. In addition, the product shows outstanding flexibility even at low temperatures, which prevents cracks from spreading in the substrate. It is therefore the ideal solution for durable coatings.
