VISIOMER® - 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 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
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 allows resins producers to design virtually any and every property into their product.
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.
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.
Surface quality, tear strength, water resistance and smoothness are key paper properties that can be significantly improved with coatings. The amino-functional monomers in VISIOMER® contribute to superior adhesion of binder resins to cellulose substrates as well as to outstanding pigment dispersion properties.
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.
VISIOMER® Terra IBOMA & VISIOMER® c-HMA provide weather- and scratch resistance to solvent borne coatings and allow for reduction of solvent content without compromising leveling and gloss. Resins with IBOMA or CHMA show fast physical drying. VISIOMER Terra IBOMA contributes to the biorenewable character of your paints.
VISIOMER® MPEG 750 MA W, VISIOMER® MPEG 1005 MA W & VISIOMER® MPEG 2005 MA W provide water borne paints with excellent low temperature stability against agglomeration.
VISIOMER® MEEU 25 M & VISIOMER® MEEU 50 W improves paint adhesion and wet scrub resistance.
VISIOMER® C18 PEG 1105 MA W promotes associative thickening for better sag control.
Long Alkyl Chain Esters such as VISIOMER® EHMA, IDMA, Terra C13-MA and Terra C17-MA enhance hydrophobicity of emulsion paints and strengthen resin resistance against polar media
· Excellent weather- and scratch resistance
· SB coatings with low VOC, fast physical drying and outstanding leveling and gloss
· Excellent shear stability, viscosity control and adhesion of emulsion paints to a variety of substrates
· Higher resistance against polar chemicals
· Carbon footprint reduction
