Synthomer at ACS 2016: to Introduce Water-based Products for Flooring Adhesives

Published on 2016-02-09. Author : SpecialChem

After a number of years Synthomer, a global producer of specialty dispersions for the construction and coatings industry will return to the 2016 ACS as exhibitor and introduce its latest water-based products for coatings, construction and flooring adhesives.

Among the next generation of polymers on show will be water-based binders for wood floor coatings (Plextol W 1078), exterior trim paint (Plextol W 1080), waterproofing membranes (Lipaton SB 60B11) and binders for thin-film intumescent coatings (Emultex FR 728 and Emultex FR 797). These next generation polymers facilitate the formulation of products that are more environmentally friendly, low VOC, APEO free, formaldehyde free, and more sustainable in many aspects.

Plextol W 1078 and Plextol W 1080 are new multiphase acrylic dispersions for wood coatings featuring low coalescent demand and very fine particle size to give deep substrate penetration and a rich wood warmth. Both products demonstrate outstanding performance, e.g. for water and chemical resistance as well as long term durability.

The new Emultex FR series of Vinyl Acetate Copolymer binders complement Synthomer´s range of dispersions for intumescent coatings. Emultex FR 797 is designed to ensure that intumescent coatings develop extensive but rigid insulating foam at high temperatures for longer protection of steel structures up to 120 minutes. Both products feature high water resistance and film flexibility.

To help support the launch of these innovative products, Synthomer´s Bob Foster, Technical Service Manager Coatings, will be presenting two papers, “New polymer developments for water-based wood coatings” and “Advances in water-based thin film intumescent coatings”.
