and chemical resistance for solvent based and high solids systems. 
TDS  Sample 
K-FLEX 171-90 SB 122 3,700 -30°C 
A chain extended version of K-FLEX 188. Offering longer pot life, improved adhesion and flexibility. Low crosslinker demand.  
TDS  Sample 
K-FLEX 188 SB, WB, CAST 230 10,000 -32°C

Improves flexibility while maintaining hardness. Also improves salt spray, humidity resistance and exterior durability. Highly recommended for 2k urethane applications. 

TDS  Sample 
K-FLEX XM-359 SB, WB, CAST 230 9,800 -32°C Prevents yellowing interaction with benzotriazole (BZT) UV absorbers in clearcoat systems. TDS  Sample 

K-FLEX 148

SB 235 3,750 -42°C

Improves flexibility and gloss. Increase solids at lower viscosity. Good flow and leveling. Excellent intercoat adhesion properties. Recommended for primers.

TDS Sample
K-FLEX XM-366 SB, WB 265 2,000 -45°C

Newest polyester diol. Excellent flexibility, gloss and hardness. 

TDS  Sample 


SB, WB 140 5,400 -50°C

A chain extended version of
K-FLEX A308. Flexibility modifier for acrylic/isocyanate and acrylic/melamine systems. Lower crosslinker demand. 

TDS Sample


SB, WB, CAST 260 1,500 -59°C
Similar to 188.  Low viscosity and high hydroxyl number gives good hardness and adhesion and lowers VOCs.
TDS Sample


SB, CAST 265 400 -68°C Lowest viscosity for lowest VOC. Softest films. TDS Sample
