Akzo Nobel Infographic on Interbond™ 2340UPC Next Generation Protection Against CUI
High cross link density coupled with a flexible chain modification grants Interbond 2340UPC excellent resistance to CUI, alongside much greater tolerance to application variation. Coupled with high dry film thickness (DFT) tolerance, Interbond 2340UPC drives application efficiency and greatly reduces the potential for cracking in service, helping to ensure excellent resistance to CUI in the most complex maintenance jobs.
