Vertellus Introduces Renewable, Moisture-resistant Polycin® Polyols

Published on 2014-05-13. Author : SpecialChem

Indianapolis, IN -- Vertellus Specialty Materials, a division of Vertellus Specialties and one of the leading supplier to the coatings and sealants industry, introduced two new Polycin® polyols at the American Coatings Show in Atlanta, Georgia. The products, Polycin® XP – 100 LV and Polycin® XP – 200 LV, have excellent utility in industrial coatings applications and allow coatings formulators the ability to increase solids and lower VOC’s without sacrificing other key performance characteristics.

"One serious drawback to solvent borne acrylic urethane coatings is the high level of VOCs, which are required to allow them to have good application characteristics," says Dr. Tim Miller, Technical Director at Vertellus Specialties. "The Polycin® polyol line from Vertellus is generally used as a reactive diluent in SB acrylic urethane coatings. Polycin® XP 100 LV and Polycin® XP 200 LV were developed to assist in meeting lower VOC targets in high solid coatings," Miller adds.

Key features of Vertellus’ Polycin® XP - 100 LV and Polycin® XP 200 LV:

  • 100% solids
  • Low Viscosity and Excellent Viscosity Reducing Power
  • Moisture Resistance
  • Excellent Compatibility with Acrylic Resins
  • Good Chemical Resistance
  • Good Film Hardness
  • Excellent Pigment Wetting
  • Renewable

Miller was a featured speaker at the conference’s Polyurethanes II session, and spoke on "New Reactive Diluents for 2K Solvent Borne Polyurethane Coatings".

"Vertellus offers a full range of polyols and we feel the market will be excited to learn of these two newly developed Polycins® polyols." Vertellus offers a full line of castor oils and castor oil derivatives, including refined castor oils, polymerized castor oils, dehydrated castor oils and hydroxy waxes.
