New bio-based polyol promotes sustainable development for two-component polyurethane coatings

September 2015

BASF has extended its range of high-quality bio-based polyols sold under the Sovermol® trademark. The products are used for manufacturing extremely low-emission two-component polyurethane coatings for interior and exterior applications. With Sovermol 830 BASF is launching a new polyol that makes indoor floorings, e.g. in industrial warehouses or sports halls, more resistant. As the resin is produced from renewable raw material and contains no volatile organic compounds* (VOC) it greatly contributes to the production of more sustainable coatings with particularly high levels of stability and durability.

The polyol can be used in coatings for industrial floorings, coatings exposed to potable water and semi-structural adhesives.

* VOC free according to the “Paints Directive” (Directive 2004/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 21, 2004 on the limitation of emissions of volatile organic compounds due to the use of organic solvents in certain paints and varnishes and vehicle refinishing products and amending Directive 1999/13/EC)
