1 © The Lubrizol Corporation 2014, all rights reserved Low VOC High Performance 1K Waterborne Polyurethanes Kevin Quinn Pacific Northwest Society for Coating Technology October 9, 2014 For Wood Coatings

2 © The Lubrizol Corporation 2014, all rights reserved 2 Definitions: PUD = Polyurethane dispersion (waterborne) 1K = 1 component coating PUD 1K PUD LZ-1 = 1K low VOC (<140g/L) self-crosslinking (at R.T.) PUD 2K = 2 component coating (polymer + crosslinker) 2K NCO = 2K commercial PUD coating with polyisocyanate crosslinker 2K Aziridine = 2K commercial PUD coating with polyaziridine crosslinker
