The following water based urethane resins are recommended for various types of PVC vinyl topcoat applications:
Bondthane™ UD-263 Water based Urethane for PVC Vinyl Topcoats
Hard, durable, and flexible for a wide variety of PVC topcoat applications
This relatively hard, durable, yet flexible water based urethane can be used by itself in many PVC Vinyl topcoat applications. It is an excellent compromise between flexibility and abrasion resistance making it highly suitable for many footwear and upholstery topcoat applications. It produces a high gloss film with excellent clarity and depth of image.
Bondthane™ UD-211 Water based Urethane for PVC Vinyl Topcoats
Medium hard, a great all-around choice
This medium hard water based urethane is also an excellent all around choice for many PVC Vinyl topcoat applications. UD-211 produces a glossy film that has an excellent balance of toughness and flexibility. It is slightly softer than the UD-263 but has a higher flexibility and elongation.
Bondthane™ UD-270 Water based Urethane for PVC Vinyl Topcoats
Sacrifices hardness for flexibility for soft PVC topcoat applications
This flexible water based urethane is not as hard as the UD-211 but is even more flexible. It may be used in certain soft PVC Vinyl topcoat applications that require extra flexibility at the cost of giving up a little bit of hardness and abrasion resistance.
Bondthane™ UD-238 Water based Urethane for PVC Vinyl Topcoats
Softer, with a bright finish and excellent flexibility.
This relatively soft water based urethane produces an exceptionally bright film with excellent flexibility. It is an excellent choice for soft PVC Vinyl topcoat applications. UD-238 produces a high gloss film that has good hand and a soft feel.
Bondthane™ UD-301 Water based Urethane for PVC Vinyl Coatings
Soft and very flexible
This soft flexible water based urethane is much softer than the UD-270 but is even more flexible with a less firm hand. It makes a very good base resin for very soft PVC Vinyl topcoats or primers. UD-301 is also heat sealable.
