YD 017 1750 - 2100 0.5 117 - 127 2000 - 4000
Features

Standard type 7 resin. This grade allows the formulation of coatings with optimized flexibility and solids content.

YD 017S 1750 - 2100 0.5 113 - 123 1290 - 2270
Features

Standard type 7 resin with lower melt viscosity. This grade allows the formulation of coatings with higher solids content and subsequently higher dry film thicknesses.
