VISIOMER® Specialty methacrylates for paints, coatings and printing inks

Coatings that require excellent film-formation, adhesion, durability and gloss properties are ideally formulated with methacrylate resins. The broad portfolio of VISIOMER® methacrylate monomers enables formulators to precisely calibrate resin properties, such as adhesion, metal protection or even preservation of natural wood.

AUTOMOTIVE COATINGS

Automotive coatings combine an attractive finish with outstanding protection. Methacrylate resins, with their inherently excellent weatherability and scratch resistance, are ideally associated with diisocyanates to add flexibility to high performance coatings. High gloss is achieved with high-solids monomers, such as VISIOMER® Terra IBOMA or VISIOMER® c-HMA; they also result in a significant reduction of viscosity and thus excellent leveling. Resins with VISIOMER® Terra IBOMA show fast physical drying and contribute to carbon footprint reduction of your paints.

ARCHITECTURAL COATINGS

Architectural coatings are widely used to protect wooden or concrete structures from bleaching, chalking and general deterioration. Protective and decorative coatings that require excellent film-formation, adhesion, durability, and gloss properties are ideally formulated with methacrylate resins. The broad portfolio of VISIOMER® methacrylate monomers allow resins producers to design virtually any and every property into their product. 
VISIOMER® MPEG 750 MA W and VISIOMER® MPEG 1005 MA W provide water borne paints with excellent low temperature stability against agglomeration. VISIOMER® MPEG 500 MA is a water- and label free polymerizable surfactant, that can be used for secondary dispersions and as pigment dispersant. VISIOMER® MEEU improves paint adhesion and wet scrub resistance of wood coatings. VISIOMER® C18 PEG 1105 MA W promotes associative thickening for better sag control. VISIOMER® Terra C13-MA and VISIOMER® Terra C17,4-MA enhance hydrophobicity of emulsion paints, strengthen resin resistance against polar media and reduce their carbon footprint

INDUSTRIAL COATINGS

Industrial coatings are the workhorses for covering the widest range of applications – heavy-duty, can and coil, wood, construction, flooring and other coatings. These are generally either solvent-based or waterborne systems. The broad portfolio of VISIOMER® methacrylate monomers enables formulators to precisely calibrate resin properties, such as adhesion, metal protection or even preservation of natural wood.

PROTECTIVE COATINGS

Marine and protective coatings are designed to preserve marine, infrastructure, energy, transportation and petrochemical equipment. VISIOMER® methacrylate monomers deliver essential contributions to modern coating systems. VISIOMER® HEMA-P 70M and HEMA-P 100  enables superior adhesion to polar surfaces like minerals, glass, and metals. In direct to metal coatings, VISIOMER® HEMA-P 70M and HEMA-P 100 enhances corrosion resistance.

PRINTING INKS

Printing ink resins are true multi-tasking talents, combining properties, such as pigment wetting, adhesion to various substrates like paper or plastic films, viscosity control, surface tension properties, etc. VISIOMER® methacrylate monomers make it possible to design resins with properties that ink formulators value.
