Waterborne Polyurethane Coatings Acquire Prominence in Wood Flooring Applications

The demand for wood flooring coatings is estimated to progress at a steady rate. Likewise, one-component (1K) solventborne and two-component (2K) waterborne (WB) polyurethane (PUR) coatings are gaining prominence in residential and commercial sectors. The ever-growing construction sector is another key driver that is contributing toward the growth of the Europe polyurethane dispersions market. As such, water-based systems are being pervasively used in new unfinished wood floor installations as well as for the restoration of existing wood floors in construction. This is evident since water-based type segment is anticipated for exponential growth in the market for polyurethane dispersions in Europe.

Polyurethane-coated floors are being highly publicized, owing to their excellent durability and desirable aesthetic looks. Due to strict environmental regulations, manufacturers in the market for polyurethane dispersions in Europe are increasing their production capacities to develop low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and low-odor coatings. Hence, manufacturers in the Europe polyurethane dispersions market are increasing the availability of high-performance waterborne polyurethane coatings.
