Alkyd Resins

Pure Alkyd Resins

Short Oil Coconut Alkyd Solution – For durable high gloss baking enamels. Used as a plasticizing resin for nitrocellulose and vinyl resins. Typical applications include automotive enamels and lacquers, furniture lacquers, enamels for metal equipment and fixtures.

Medium Linseed Alkyd – Offers excellent adhesion, flexibility and durability. Exhibits good drying properties. Produces paint film with good gloss retention. Recommended for industrial air-dry and baking enamels, automotive and machinery enamels, industrial metal primers.

Medium Soya Alkyd – Provides enamels with good adhesion, gloss and flexibility. Designed for architectural and industrial enamels. Different grades are available with varying viscosities to suit different needs.

Long Oil Soya Alkyd – Recommended for interior and exterior enamels, marine finishes, sign paints, and the manufacture of pigment pastes. Could also be used for silkscreen inks.

Modified Alkyd Resins

Rosin and PhenolicModified Short Oil Linseed Alkyd – Provides coatings with fast-drying property, unusually good adhesion, excellent hardness and durability. For fast-drying industrial enamels, e.g., marine and furniture enamels, traffic paints. Grades are available for making lift-resistant primers and surfacers for lacquer systems.

Styrenated Alkyd-Acrylic Resin – Has outstanding combination of hardness and flexibility, good adhesion and toughness, good color and gloss retention even on overbaking. Recommended for use as sole vehicle or as an amino resin modified vehicle for roller, strip or coil coating of thin metals for cans, caps, closures and other formed articles.

Rosin-Modified Medium Soya – High viscosity grades are available to permit formulations of low solid cost-effective enamels at normal package consistency. Have outstanding drying characteristics and good pigment- wetting property. Recommended for cost-effective fast-dry enamels, traffic paints, shop coat primers, and economical drum coatings. May also be used as a modifier for pure oxidizing and modified alkyds to speed up drying and improve gloss.

Urethane- Modified Long Oil Soya – Provides fast-drying varnishes with excellent abrasion resistance, good color and color retention, excellent leveling, and outstanding resistance to household chemicals and solvents.

Saturated Polyester Resins

Saturated Polyester Resins – Recommended for high performance applications, such as coatings for roof, appliances, aluminum siding and other post formable goods requiring a very flexible coating. Could also be used as primer for automotives. These resins provide tough and very flexible coatings with good mechanical properties and excellent chemical resistances, excellent adhesion through severe metal forming operations.

Thermoplastic Acrylic Resins

Thermoplastic Acrylic Resins – For gasoline-resistant automotive refinishes, primers and putties, appliance coatings, various coatings for metal, wood, and plastic substrates. For non-yellowing and durable interior and exterior coatings for concrete.

Rosin Esters

Maleic Modified – Has excellent compatibility with most alkyd resins, nitrocellulose and oils and plasticizers. It imparts hardness and depth of finish when used as modifying resin in nitrocellulose lacquers. It also provides good rubbing, color retention and solvent release properties in sanding sealers and clear lacquers. Provides required hardness and gloss in overprint varnishes, imparts rapid bodying and provides exceptionally pale and color retentive varnishes for both air and baking finishes. Available in solid and solution form.

Reactive Polyamides

Reactive Polyamides – Used as curing agents for epoxy resins in various coatings, laminating, casting, flooring and adhesives applications. Epoxy-polyamide coating systems provide good flexibility and high impact strength, good chemical resistance and excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates.
