Melamine surfaces

Duoprime M is the only primer that provides consistent excellent adhesion to all melamine surfaces.

LVT/PVC surfaces

Duoprime P high energy absorbing  primer enabling thin UV-acrylate coatings on LVT/PVC.

Plastic

Duoprime PET is a flexible low-stress primer for PET liners and surfaces.

Duoprime industrial adhesion primers are developed for surfaces to which nothing seems to adhere or for demanding applications where current primers fail because they are either too soft or too brittle. Duoprime patented technoogy combines state-of-the-art reactivity with a unique thiol chemsitry to provide: covalent attachment to a wide range of substrates; increased mechanical flexibility; low shrinkage stress to enable perfect contact with the substrate even after full cure; and excellent reactivity to ensure adhesion to subsequent acrylate coatings.

Duoprime M – for laminates and melamine

 

The latest generation of melamine panels and floors are starting to look very much like wood parquest flooring, complete with wood structure, cracks and knots filled with putty. Colors are also starting to look very convincing but they still tend to look and feel a bit plastic and glossy compared with coated wood.  However, adding a hard and scratch resistant coating can make them perfect replicas of  a much more expensive wood floor product.

Duoprime M industrial UV melamine primer is developed together with our partners and customers targeting table top and floor melamine surfaces. Duoprime M has been shown to provide  superior adhesion within minutes to many types of melamine and laminates compared to acrylate based primers.  Duoprime M is compatible with standard UV-ovens and roller coaters used in the laminate industry. Together with our customers, we have shown that with exactly the same primer we have achieved excellent adhesion (Hamberger Hobel > 35-40 N) to all tested melamine panels and floors; for example, high pressure laminates (HPL), melamine/wood composites and LPL and CPL melamine from different suppliers.

Getting adhesion to melamine is possible with standard acrylates or isocyanate coatings, but adhesion will mainly rely on surface energy matching between the melamine and the primer.  Duoprime M is a one component UV primer with a new adhesion technology that bonds covalently to even fully cured melamine, protecting you from melamine batch to batch variations and always ensures you the same excellent adhesion.

Plug-and-play

Duoprime M melamine primer is a one component product compatible with standard UV-ovens and roller coaters. The products achieves 80% of the adhesion performance immediately.

Compatible with UV lacquers

Duoprime M is fully compatible with  UV acrylate base and top coats, giving full design freedom of the surface looks on any melamine or laminate substrate.

Excellent adhesion to melamine

Duoprime M enables covalent adhesion to melamine which makes it little sensitive to the melamine quality.

Duoprime M technical information

Duoprime P – for LVT/PVC

Duoprime P family of primers are developed for demanding roll-to-roll applications such giving adhesion to PVC-based products such as  luxury vinyl tiles (LVT). Fully cured Duoprime P is hard and non-cracking even at 180 deg hair-pin bends. It is applied using standard equipment, such as roller coaters or spray nozzels and is subsequnelty UV cured.

Adhesion

Duoprime P has excellent adhesion to plastics such as PVC/LVT via a rapid UV cure, without the use of solvents.

Flexibility

Duoprime P allows coating of flexible substrate and can be bent more than 180 degrees without cracking or delamination.

High energy absorption

Duoprime P is hard yet flexible, enables very thin coatings with retained flexiblity. It has a high energy absorbing capacity which adds robustess to your coatings.

Duoprime PET – for PET and plastic films

Duoprime PET is an adhesion primer tuned towards PET and Mylar films. Fully cured Duoprime PET is sttiff, yet flexible and non-cracking even at 180 deg hair-pin bends. It is applied using standard equipment, such as roller coaters or spray nozzels and is subsequnelty UV cured.

Adhesion

Adhesion via a rapid UV cure to a range of substrates, including metals.

Flexibility

Allows coating of flexible substrate and can be bent over 180 deg without cracking.

Hardness

Hard yet flexible, enables very thin coatings with retained flexiblity.
