  • Patent number: 11459483
    Abstract: A double coating, curing method, cured coating, and kit are provided. A first layer of the double coating can be a first cure coating composition, which has a first hydroxy-functional resin, a first crosslinking agent, and a non-polar catalyst. A second layer of a second cure coating composition can have a second hydroxy-functional resin, a second crosslinking agent, and a polar catalyst. The non-polar catalyst catalyzes crosslinking between the second hydroxy-functional resin and crosslinking agent, and not between the first hydroxy-functional resin and crosslinking agent. The polar catalyst catalyzes crosslinking between the first hydroxy-functional resin and crosslinking agent, and not between the second hydroxy-functional resin and crosslinking agent. The polarity of the catalysts can facilitate catalyst migration from one layer to the other. The separate compositions can be shelf-stable and/or the curing can occur at low temperature.

  • Patent number: 11391631
    Abstract: Disclosed is a process for determining a plurality of color quality indicators for controlling the color of a coating. Colorimetric coordinates of a color reference and the coating are ascertained for a plurality of coated surface elements using a spectrophotometer at a number of measurement geometries and a number of light sources. For each measurement geometry and each light source, color differences are calculated from the colorimetric coordinates of the color reference and the coating of the plurality of coated surface elements. The respective colorimetric coordinates are normalized with one weighting factor. Each of the plurality of color quality indicators is determined by means of a mapping, of functional values onto a scale value of a predetermined scale. The functional values are determined in each case for the number of measurement geometries and the number of light sources by means of a mathematical relationship.
