Sun Chemical to Showcase Adhesive Innovations at American Coatings ShowSun Chemical will showcase its full range of polymers and additives for the adhesives and coatings industry during the American Coatings Show 2024, held from April 30–May 2, 2024 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Visitors will be introduced to newly launched waterborne resins, efficient driers and additives, and high-performance polyurethanes—all compatible with an extensive range of coatings and designed to meet customers’ needs while furthering sustainable initiatives.

Polymers & Additives

Sun Chemical offers an elaborate portfolio of polymers and additives for a wide range of coatings and adhesives applications. This includes a broad range of polymer technologies which cover state-of-the-art needs for the automotive, transport, aerospace, and construction sectors.

Sun Chemical’s polymer offering includes a new set of bio-based polyurethane dispersions for artificial leather. Sun Chemical provides solutions for skin, adhesive, and coagulation layers, and has developed a new polyester which can improve flexibility and gloss in multiple coatings applications.

Also highlighted at the booth will be DIC Corporation’s recently launched HYDRAN™ GP series of environment-friendly waterborne polyurethane resins. These new resins have a higher solid content than conventional water-based polyurethane resins and contain no amines, helping customers to shorten process times and reduce odors, in addition to limiting greenhouse gas emissions and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The HYDRAN™ GP series is available globally and is suitable for a range of applications including artificial leather, coatings, and adhesives.

In terms of additives, Sun Chemical offers a new cobalt-free and VOC-free drier, DICNATE MV-130A. It shows efficient drying at very low dosages, exhibits low dark yellowing, and has excellent compatibility with secondary driers, as well as matting agents and pigments.

High-performance Polyurethanes

Through its acquisition of SAPICI, Sun Chemical offers a complete portfolio of extra low free monomer (aromatic, mixed aromatic-aliphatic and aliphatic) polyisocyanates and prepolymers for a broad range of applications including: coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, casting, inks, and more.

Sun Chemical also offers a very wide range of water-based polyurethane and acrylic dispersions for every application, together with a complete range of water dispersible low free monomer polyisocyanates to formulate 2K systems. Sun Chemical offers solutions for wood, metal, plastic, leather, water-proofing membranes, textiles, and more.

Sun Chemical’s newest development in this space focuses on bio-based polyisocyanates for a safer and more sustainable future.
