Moisture cured urethanes have been around for years as they were invented in the 1940’s. What is fascinating is why the inventor chose to develop this technology when he started to develop his protective coatings.
The answers are many and varied:
After commercializing his new technology in the 1980’s and 1990’s what very few people realised was that the inventor went back into the laboratory in 2000 to upgrade and improve on his formulations. As a result MCU-Coatings now has a 2-coat, thin film technology that, in independent testing, has achieved +25 years to first maintenance in a C5 environment using a ST3 surface preparation.
The use of a high-quality urethane base resins that are stable and have these excellent performance fundamentals also means that MCU-Coatings do not need an extensive range of specialist coatings – like most other protective coating manufacturers. The primers are designed to adhere, the intermediate coatings are designed for high build, and together with the limited range of top coats the MCU-Coatings product suite can be applied almost anywhere and addresses over 90% of all protective coatings challenges.
