This article addresses some of the key challenges associated with formulating resins at high solids levels and outlines the potential for Michael addition chemistry to raise coatings solids levels to new heights.
This innovative new series of poly-Mannich epoxy curing agents is formulated to offer a reduced hazard rating and variable reactivity inclusive of slow, medium and outstanding speed of cure.
This article discusses a unique, biobased solution designed for thermoplastic road marking formulations. The new technology improves two critical performance characteristics in a rosin ester – initial light color and oxidative stability.
There are important advantages related to the latex properties that can be achieved with a semi-batch process, and more specifically a starve-fed process, which is simply a semi-batch process where the monomer concentration inside the polymer …
OH-functional acrylic emulsions can be designed with a wide range of hydroxyl values and performance characteristics to address the needs of many different applications in plastic, wood, automotive, and construction coatings.
This restoration coating is helping a building resist exterior fading and degradation for at least 20 years.
This article discusses what VOCs are, where they come from, and why high-solids coatings are so good at reducing VOC emissions.
Managing color can be challenging, but with a comprehensive digital color management system in place, it is possible to achieve accurate color quickly, sustainably and cost efficiently.
Water-based epoxy resin and curing agents have been developed that can used together as a system to provide corrosion protection coatings with low VOC content, less than 100 grams per liter.
A new binder for water-based wood trim paints is based on a heterogeneous acrylic polymer structure. It combines excellent flexibility and high blocking resistance, while maintaining low VOC content.
