Water-based Recent research aims at obtaining new materials based on active substances with bacteriostatic or bactericidal capacity that can be applied as coatings. Ensuring that the materials are environmentally sustainable is another project goal. The new bio-based compounds will be encapsulated in polymer matrices so they can be used as water-based varnishes for furniture and surface coatings and for mass production of injected products. Sustainable A series of isocyanate-free polyurethanes (NIPUs), showing an intrinsic thermo-healing performance, have been synthesised from sustainable vegetable oil-based cyclic carbonates and bio-based amines. ...
