Invisible Difference. Why not?
With Bayhydur® quix you won’t be able to feel the difference. It is a new hydrophilic hardener that allows 2K waterborne polyurethane to dry as fast as solventborne aromatic wood coatings. Now you don’t have to choose between fast drying or performance when switching to waterborne systems. The invisible difference.

As sustainability becomes more important, it is driving an increasing need for alternatives to reduce volatile organic component (VOC) in coatings. Waterborne solutions have been available but could not close the gap to solvent-based systems. Until now. Bayhydur® quix 306-70 enables coating manufacturers to formulate two-component wood coatings with a VOC lower than 100 g per liter that are just as effective and efficient as corresponding solvent-based coatings, with an extra improvement: very low VOC. Making all the difference to mother nature. But no difference to you.

“Waterborne wood coatings based on Bayhydur® quix can achieve a sand dry after just 35 minutes, so they no longer need to be protected from dust. In less than 2 hours, T4 drying time is achieved, meaning the film is fully dried.”
