Resins

We provide specialty resins for various applications for the coatings and allied industries. All of our polysaccharide resins are made from renewable plant sources and are non-toxic. This makes them ideal for formulating “green coatings”.

Calatysts & Hardeners

INKRES™ 33Open/Close

INKRES™ 33 is a film forming polysaccharide resin used for partial replacement of acrylic emulsion resins in water-based flexographic ink formulations to improve press resolubility and stability.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • Replaces acrylic emulsions in water-based flexographic ink formulations to be applied on absorptive substrates
  • Increases the ‘green’ content of the formulation
  • VOC-free
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-irritating to skin and eyes

Engineered Materials

Specialty engineered calcined and hydrous kaolins and mineral fibres for paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants and other industries such as wire & cable, plastics, construction etc.

Engineered Kaolins (BASF)Open/Close

basfBASF engineered kaolins provide benefits in coatings and inks including increased opacity, tint strength and sheen control. They improve electrical and physical performance in wire & cable, increase mechanical strength, impact and flex strength in rubber and plastics and strengthen concrete and cement based products. Visit www.kaolin.basf.com for more information.

Engineered Mineral Fibres (Lapinus)Open/Close

lapinusIntelligent fibres, spun from high purity volcanic rock provide fire protection, reinforcement, impact resistance, etc. in a variety of Industrial coating applications. Visit www.lapinusfibres.com for more information.

Extenders

High purity functional fillers for a variety of coating applications.

Faltalc 3Open/Close
Faltalc 3 is produced from high purity ores that yield a talc with fine particle size and high brightness. This talc provides excellent holdout and barrier properties for porous substrates when used in paints and coatings.
Sil-Cell®Open/Close

Sil-Cell® is an inert, inorganic, non-toxic and non-hazardous glass micro cellular material with spherical and irregular morphology, used specifically for automobile body fillers. The irregular shapes promote greater tensile strength than the usual spherical bubbles.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • Provides superior rheology characteristics such as ease of spreadability
  • Improved stability, shelf life, sandability and impact resistance

Polyurethane Dispersions

Water borne polyurethane dispersions that allow manufacturers to formulate zero VOC and NMP free coatings.
