Arkema is proud to have been selected to protect NASA’s iconic logo on the Artemis 1 Space Launch System (SLS). The innovative coating is powered by Arkema’s Kynar Aquatec® PVDF latex and provides extreme durability to keep NASA’s red “worm” logo on the solid rocket boosters intact while soaring to space.
The SLS boosters featuring NASA’s red logo are the largest, most powerful solid propellant boosters ever built for flight.
The waterborne clearcoat protecting the logo was created by Arkema’s partner, Acrymax® Technologies Inc. Kynar Aquatec® PVDF latex enabled Acrymax® Technologies to design a water-based protective coating with exceptional durability in low VOC, air-dry systems.
“Kynar Aquatec® PVDF latex is really unique in that it delivers such world-leading performance in a user-friendly fashion. No baking or post-treatment is required.”
