ESE Coatings has developed a range of Organic Waterborne Polyurethanes for the specific application of architectural flat glass.The coating is suitable for Internal and External applications with UV stable resins and pigments formulated in all finishes. It is formulated to be chemically and moisture resistant and when cured creates an impermeable barrier and resistance to the elements.Cutting edge waterborne technology designed for excellent adhesion, coverage, and durability enables the coating to perform in the most extreme conditions. Our flexible polyurethane coatings are designed to endure cycles of thermal expansion and contraction, mechanical bending, water, and chemical resistance - See Independent Test reports. The high-quality coatings combined with high colorant concentrations mean low base to pigment loading ratio, which maximizes adhesion and minimizes colorant expense.The ESE Waterborne Polyurethane Glass Coatings range provides durability for the most demanding applications. The coatings flexibility is the key to its high-performance long term. The coatings have been designed to be fully cured at low bake temperatures which maximize energy efficiency and/or to cure at ambient temperatures for flexibility of production. In order to achieve a consistent and even film thickness after application, the coating has been designed to enable it to flow evenly, without sagging and mottling. This enables Translucent and Transparent finishes to be unachievable over large areas in a variety of application techniques.

ESE Coatings has developed its range of Waterborne Glass Coatings to have excellent adhesive properties with glass and plastics.
Its inherent film flexibility enables the coating to stay adhered to both the glass surface and the lamination film over varying degrees of expansion and contraction of the glass.
These properties, as well as its ability to maintain a consistent film thickness, enable ESE Coatings when laminated to pass all testing criteria for the glass industry.
