Resilon

Resilon® is a line of waterborne, single-component coatings for use on flexible substrates in the automotive industry. Based on PU/Si-hybrid technology, Resilon coatings are designed to solve a variety of problems.

Resilon helps to reduce friction, suppress noise, avoid sticking and protect against weathering for automotive sealing systems, i.e., trunk/boot surrounds, rubber door seals, etc.
