New polyurethane waterborne coating from Chemcraft, combines excellent water and chemical resistance, with low levels of odor, VOCs and HAPs. The tide is changing. Chemcraft, a leading brand from AkzoNobel that meets the broad needs of industrial wood finishers and craftsmen alike, has launched Acquaduro, a 2K polyurethane waterborne system that delivers excellent water and chemical resistance, while also being low VOC, low odor and virtually HAPs free.

Designed specifically for the cabinet, architectural millwork, furniture and refinish markets, Acquaduro provides superior water and chemical resistance and has high build and excellent feel and appearance.

Available as a clear or pigmented tintable system consisting of a topcoat, primer and hardener, Acquaduro is easy to apply, offers great sandability and has no recoat window. The clear topcoat (423-34XX) can be used with industry leading Chemcraft stains, while the pigmented product (228-34XX) has high solids and great hide that allows for exceptional ease of application.

“Acquaduro provides our distributors and their customers with a waterborne technology that not only outperforms Architectural Woodwork Institute waterborne testing, but also performs comparably to solvent borne products. It supports the need for a chemical resistant, durable, and sustainable coating for the custom woodworking and refinish markets,” says Ron Cooper, Segment Manager, Wood Coatings.

Whether being used in a finishing shop or at a professional on-site job, this innovative, versatile and high performing product meets or exceeds industry standards, including Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association standards, while also providing good UV resistance and great flow and leveling.

As a waterborne product, Acquaduro also helps to reduce air emissions and meets the relevant government regulations, in line with AkzoNobel’s ‘People. Planet. Paint’ approach to sustainable business.  

“AkzoNobel protects your brand and your reputation,” says Cooper. “With expertise built up over 200 years, we deliver superior quality products like Chemcraft’s Acquaduro that are designed to stand the test of time, while ensuring the highest level of performance.”

We supply the sustainable and innovative paints and coatings that our customers, communities – and the environment – are increasingly relying on.
