Product overview
UNITHANE 700 WD 60 is an urethane alkyd based on aliphatic isocyanate and was designed particularly with colour retention in mind. The resin can be used in clear and pigmented finishes that meet the 2010 VOC limits set in Directive 2004/42/CE and is often used in combination with colour retentive long oil alkyds.The excellent colour and gloss retention of UNITHANE 700 WD 60, especially when exposed to ultra violet light, makes it an ideal choice for use in exterior applications, including garden furniture and marine finishing. In clear varnishes UNITHANE 700 WD 60 can be used as the sole medium. For decorative gloss or eggshell finishes, between 20-50% of the urethane resin should be used, the balance being a colour retentive long oil alkyd.The resin is supplied in low aromatic white spirit to enable the formulation of coatings that do not require adverse environmental labelling.
