PolyOne Launches Geon™ Homopolymer Vinyl Dispersion Resin for Hotmelt Plastisols

Published on 2011-12-08. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND -- PolyOne Corporation, one of the premier global providers of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, has recently introduced Geon™ Adept homopolymer vinyl dispersion resin, featuring high clarity, fast fusion, low melt viscosity, and non-settling characteristics. Manufacturers of plastisol textile printing inks, hot melt plastisols, and polyurethane caulks will benefit from Geon Adept's novel combination of properties, allowing them to grow revenues and profitability by expanding their range of offerings, decreasing cycle times and reducing scrap.

For hot melt plastisol production, with its low melt viscosity, Geon Adept vinyl resin helps to increase productivity. Its improved non-settling performance extends plastisol pot-life while reducing stirring, prep time, and scrap. Frank Tomaselli, General Manager, PolyOne Specialty Coatings and Resins, said, "This new product helps customers overcome challenges in a number of niche applications, and demonstrates PolyOne's commitment to developing specialized solutions for our customers".

Screen printers using textile printing inks made with Geon Adept vinyl resin can benefit from improved color intensity and higher clarity, imparting a superior product appearance. The high clarity of Geon Adept is ideal for special-effect inks such as metallic flake pigments. Geon Adept offers longer shelf life and less waste due to its improved viscosity aging performance. In addition, the resin's fast fusion properties also make it suitable for use in "high build" inks, offering an alternative to copolymer resins. Moreover, the resin's non-settling characteristics can also extend the shelf life of the formulated ink.

When used in polyurethane construction caulk formulations, Geon Adept offers low moisture absorption and aids in developing yield, providing ease of application and sealing integrity. Geon™ Adept vinyl resins are available globally.
