DALLAS -- Celanese Corporation, a global technology and specialty materials company and a one of the global leaders in VAE emulsions, invites attendees of the ChinaCoat 2013 international exhibition to learn more about solutions for a broad array of coatings and adhesives applications.

"While attending ChinaCoat 2013, manufacturers of architectural paints, automotive paints, waterproofing coatings, industrial adhesives and vinyl-based emulsions discover the products and the expertise Celanese can deliver to their organizations," said Mark Oberle, Celanese Vice President of sales, Asia. "Celanese is committed to growth in China and the Asia region and supports our efforts through our largest chemical manufacturing complex located in Nanjing, China, and our commercial and technology center located in Shanghai," Oberle added.

Under its new brand, Celanese - The chemistry inside innovation, the company is highlighting a wide variety of products including vinyl acetate ethylene emulsions, acrylic emulsions, EVA polymers, vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) and solvents for use in coatings and adhesives applications.

Solutions for Architectural Paints

Celanese is also showcasing its EcoVAE® line of vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) emulsions for use in ultra-low odor, low VOC (volatile organic compounds) decorative paints.

"Celanese has a long history of assisting paint formulators with the difficult task of lowering VOCs while also reducing the unpleasant odor of interior paints, making a consumer-friendly product. Formulators appreciate that VAE emulsions are the best way to achieve their sales and marketing goals while reaching a high level of technical performance," says Anna An, Commercial Director for Celanese emulsions, Asia.

In addition, Celanese is showing its VAE emulsions for use in waterproofing coatings, which are also low odor and low VOC.

Solutions for Automotive Paints

Celanese is highlighting its Polysolvan® O solvent for use in automotive paints. Because of its very low volatility, Polysolvan O is used chiefly as a paint additive in the form of a highly effective flow agent.

Solutions for Industrial Adhesives

Celanese offers a range of emulsions for use in industrial adhesives for paper packaging and converting as well as for use in woodworking. Celvolit® VAE emulsions are widely used in the paper packaging adhesive space due to their low odor and low residual monomer levels, making them the emulsion of choice for food packaging, tobacco production and cartons. They also offer ease of formulation and good machinability.

Celanese offers a line of EVA polymers for hot melt adhesives offering a wide range of melt index and vinyl acetate content. Under the Ateva® brand name, they are recognized globally for their versatility and quality.

Celanese sales, marketing and technical specialists are available throughout the exhibition to answer any questions regarding EcoVAE emulsions or the company's other offerings. Visit Celanese during exhibition hours at booth 3E41-48.
