Advanced Colors at PSE Europe 2019

ISL-Chemie GmbH & Co. KG, who has been a producer of pigment pastes, dyes, In-Mould-Coatings and additives for 50 now years will be presenting long-term proven products for the colouring and coating of polyurethanes at PSE Europe 2019.

Special effects for PU coatings; ISOPUR

Especially in the automotive industry high-quality surfaces with effects are more and more in demand by end-users. However, processing the expensive pigments is often challenging as they have a tendency to settle. The desired effect is often not achieved as the pigments used can hardly be seen in the final application, for example a surface coating. Thanks to its long-term expertise with the dispersion of pigments ISL has succeeded in stabilizing special effect pigments for the use in polyurethane-coatings in a way that they can be perceived with the desired intensity in the final application, even in thicker coatings.

In-Mould-Coating for exterior applications: ISOTHAN®

Plastic parts are coated directly in the mould using the In-Mould-Coating (IMC) process. The IMC-process is already established for the production of steering wheels, dashboards and many other applications within the automotive interior area. Post-painting of the parts is no longer necessary and thus time and money can be saved. The ISOTHAN®-NT-paint for corresponding applications features high surface quality, excellent UV-stability as well as very good chemical resistances.

In-Mould-Coating for Spray-Skin applications

ISL-In-Mould-Coatings stand the test in applications like e.g. the PU-Spray-Skin method. Here an aromatic PU-system is sprayed into a pre-tempered mould. The final surface of the spray skin is refined and protected and pleasant haptics are achieved by using ISL-ISOTHAN®-In-Mould Paints which are sprayed into the mould at first. Fast colour shade changes as well as multi-coloured PU-parts are possible using spray skin technology. The technology can be used for dashboards, glove compartment lids, door trim panels or armrests and other parts and offers reduced weight as well as general costs savings compared to other technologies. The coated surfaces offer outstanding UV, abrasion and chemical resistances.

A partner to the polyurethane industry for over 50 years

ISL is more than just a product supplier. A team of experienced application engineers and developers who work closely with customers and the market enable the company to respond quickly to trends, as well as helping to shape them. An excellent understanding of the manufacturing processes involved in producing polyurethane and comprehensive knowledge of the raw materials has made ISL a reliable partner to the polyurethane industry for over 50 years now.


The ISL Team is looking forward to the visit of customers and interested parties at its booth No.420 at PSE Europe at the MOC Munich from 26.-28.03.2019.
