ICO-THANE BF 10 is a rather hard, but more flexible, light-fast polyester-based aqueous aliphatic polyurethane dispersion compound with PTFE. It has been especially developed for the impregnation of ropes and twines which are used in extreme bending or abrasion conditions.
ICO-THANE BF 10 is a PU based dispersion which needs to be properly dried and cured to form a fully polymerized film.
ICO-THANE BF 10 may be used without modification or diluted with water, by spray, dip or kiss-roll methods, to bring a coating on the strands or rope:
• HMPE 8-12% by weight of fiber
• LCP 8-12% by weight of fiber
ICO-THANE BF 10 can be mixed with any other non-ionic emulsions and liquid pigments. (ICO-PRINT Range)
ICO-THANE BF 10 has outstanding abrasion and cut-resistance when applied on ropes. It gives hard, highly extensible, tough films. It gives dry films which do not discolor on exposure to day light. It improves bending fatigue, because of its lower friction coefficient.
Packaging & storage:
ICO-THANE BF 10 is available in ± 25 kg, ± 208 kg disposable PE drums or in disposable IBC’s of 1 ton.
Stored in SEALED CONDITIONS, at ambient temperature (5°-30° C), the product is at least 6 months stable.
