Published on 2017-10-05. Author : SpecialChem

Sun Chemical’s Performance Pigments and Advanced Materials divisions have launched a wide array of new pigments and resin technologies during ABRAFATI 2017.

Some of the newest solutions on display at Sun Chemical’s booth at Row B/Aisle 2-3, include: a solvent-free hotmelt adhesive resin, an acrylic polyol for air dry melamine technology that offers the same key curing benefits of a stoving system, pigments that expand the color gamut and meet environmental regulations, and other novel technologies that add luxury to automotive interior plastic parts and anti-corrosion properties.


Newest Solutions on Display

Michael T. Venturini, Marketing Director, Coatings, Sun Chemical, said:

“ABRAFATI is a significant event for Sun Chemical and we hope to demonstrate how our full range of tailor made resins and pigments can help customers and prospective customers achieve excellent results with any coatings application. We look forward to interacting face-to-face with a much broader global customer base and learning what needs and requirements they are looking for with both their resins and pigments.”

Resin technology from DIC is being showcased by Sun Chemical Advanced Materials during the show including the newest addition to the popular FINEPLUS product range, FINEPLUS® HM, a solvent-free 2K reactive hotmelt adhesive designed to adhere to laminate furniture, metal, plastics, textiles and glass that replaces solvent-based hotmelt adhesive chemistries. Ideal for improving environmental performance, ease of use, and reliability in automotive assembly, the full portfolio includes amorphous, crystalline and liquid versions of the high-quality polyester polyols for reactive adhesives.

High Performance Pigment and Resin Solutions for Anti-Corrosion

With difunctional, trifunctional and tetrafunctional varieties, EPICLON epoxy resins impart high-performance composites with unmatched heat and water resistance, toughness and excellent adhesion. Booth visitors learn why DIC’s EPICLON epoxy resins are ideal for major applications in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, tooling and adhesives industries.

When mixed with waterborne epoxy resins, zinc flake pigments can often provide superior corrosion protection. Sun Chemical’s Benda-Lutz® ZINC provides the cathodic protection of zinc in a platelet form allowing for coatings with thinner film thicknesses and reduced settling. Flake geometry also provides excellent long term barrier protection and gives finished coatings a smooth, unique metallic appearance.
