Croda at Chinacoat: Presents its Range of Bio-based Building Blocks & Speciality Surfactants

Published on 2012-11-28. Author : SpecialChem

At Chinacoat 2012, Croda Coatings & Polymers presents its range of bio-based building blocks and speciality surfactants. The product range offers environmentally friendly solutions for resin manufacturers and formulators in the coatings and adhesives industry.

Their range includes leading edge product brands such as:
  • Priamine amine functional dimer derivatives for epoxy curing and hot melt adhesives
  • LoVOCoat polymeric surfactants for VOC reduction of solvent borne coatings
  • Maxemul non-migratory surfactants for water borne coatings & adhesives
  • Pripol fully renewable dimer fatty acid building blocks for all types of resins
  • Priplast bio-based polyester polyols for high performance polyurethane dispersions
  • Crodacor OME FE non-voc additive combining corrosion and flash rust protection for aqueous mild steel coatings
  • Atlas G speciality alkoxylates for polyester, epoxy and radcure systems
  • Zephrym non-VOC polymeric dispersants for coatings

Croda presented a technical paper at this conference entitled: 'Novel, low viscosity dimer diamine for bridging flexibility and hardness for marine & protective coatings' by Mr. Hans Ridderikhoff, Research & Technology Manager at the Ballroom, Ramada Plaza Guangzhou.

For many years Croda has offered a range of bio-based building blocks with a renewable nature for the use in high performance coatings such as polyurethane dispersions, epoxy toughened coatings and UV-curable coatings. These building blocks bring excellent hydrolytic stability, outdoor stability, flexibility and adhesion to a wide range of substrates including plastic, metal and wood. Croda has now developed a range of new amine-functional low viscosity dimer products.

For epoxy resins, the technology provides similar benefits to dimer fatty acid based polyamide curatives, such as flexibility and impact resistance. However, this new curative allows for high solids formulations with good water repellency, pigment wetting and excellent durability. For polyurea, the technology brings improved moisture and chemical resistance together with an excellent surface finish and impact resistance. Furthermore, the novel amine functional materials are fully bio-based (100% renewable carbon) and are completely non-volatile, thus bringing clear environmental and health benefits to the end-users.

Croda is presenting a technology paper at this event entitled: 'Speciality Fatty Bio-based Monomers for Coatings' presented by Dr. Paul Cameron, Research & Technology Manager on Thursday 29 November 2012, 1500 - 1545 Hrs in Hall 11.2, Meeting Zone 11.2M25-34, GICEC.

Dimer fatty acids have been used for many years to bring high performance to materials such as epoxy coatings and hotmelt polyamide adhesives. Croda has recently developed many new grades of related bio-based monomers. These bring a number of special properties including better color, UV / heat / colour stability and controlled functionality, in conjunction with other long established benefits such as hydrolytic stability, adhesion and flexibility. The technology can also bring low viscosity, enabling low VOC, and can be used in many types of coating, including polyurethane dispersion, radcure, epoxy and saturated polyester.
