Solubility / thinnability 

The product is compatible with the following solvents:

ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, 1-methoxypropylacetate-2, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, cyclohexanone, toluene, xylene,solvent naphtha® 100 and mixtures thereof.

Aliphatic hydrocarbons are unsuitable as solvents.

Desmodur® XP 2840 should not be thinned to below a solids content of 40 % by weight. Prolonged storage of a solution with lower binder content may result in turbidity and sedimentation. Storage stability of the thinned product should be tested in each case.



Desmodur®XP 2840 can be blended with most Desmodur® grades, such as:Desmodur®N 75, N 100, N 3200, N 3300, N 3390, N 3400, N 3600, N 3900,Z 4470, HL and IL. Compatibility is generally good with hydroxyfunctional polyesters and polyethers (Desmophen®grades) as well as hydroxy acrylates.

It is incompatible with Desmophen® 650 and 651.


Properties / Applications 

As a particularly low-viscosity polyisocyanate, Desmodur® XP 2840 is particularly well suited for the formulation of high-solids coatings for general industrial coating, automotive refinishing, transportation and plastics coating applications.


– Storage in original sealed Covestro container.

– Recommended storage temperature: > 0 – 30 °C.

– Protect from moisture, heat and foreign material.

General information : The product is sensitive to moisture. Storage at higher temperatures will result in increase of color and viscosity.

Storage time 

Covestro represents that, for a period of nine months following the day of shipment as stated in the respective transport documents, the product will meet the specifications or values set forth in section “specifications or characteristic data” above, what ever is applicable, provided that the product is stored in full compliance with the storage conditions set forth in and referenced under section “storage” above and is otherwise handled appropriately.
