Mallard Creek Polymers Unveils Rovene®6521, an Acrylic Emulsion for Construction

Published on 2017-01-20. Author : SpecialChem

Mallard Creek Polymers (MCP) has developed Rovene®6521. The product is designed as a multipurpose acrylic grade that can be used in thick film paints or membranes, has cement compatibility to allow adequate open time, and is plasticizer-free.

MCP continues to introduce valuable coating and binder technology for the construction industry by developing new acrylic polymer emulsions and styrene acrylics. The new acrylic polymers are developed to supplement the extensive portfolio of styrene-butadiene latexes the company offers to many building and construction applications.

Multipurpose Acrylic Grade

Rovene®6521 is designed as a multipurpose acrylic grade that can be used in thick film paints or membranes, has cement compatibility to allow adequate open time, and is plasticizer-free.

MCP had previously introduced Tylac® 4193, a styrene-butadiene copolymer with very similar performance. The SBR provides improved adhesion while the acrylic latex has improved UV stability. The open time and workability are essentially equivalent.

Synthetic Emulsion Polymers in Construction

There are many uses for synthetic emulsion polymers in Construction, whether building a home or a commercial property like a new school. A few key applications are waterproofing, structural adhesives, tracks and tennis courts, and road construction. Synthetic latex based cement products are used in a variety of applications such as asphalt modification, concrete repair systems, exterior masonry systems, grouts and mortars, flooring and bridge-deck structures.

Other products for the Construction industry can be found in the company’s Building and Construction Selection Guide. The grades demonstrated show a number of the products developed for market applications, but actually represent a small number of the products that customers may find valuable. The company dedicates much of its Research and Development time designing customized products to meet a single users specific applications requirements. MCP products can be available to a unique customer, while other products are developed for any application, market, or customer.
