Lorama Polysaccharide Resin Technology


Designed to reduce the cost of solvent-based alkyd enamels, primers, and stains while maintaining original paint quality, Lorama’s signature polysaccharide resins form the basis of our Lorama Polysaccharide Resin Technology (LPRT). In addition to significant cost savings LPRT can further assist with VOC reduction allowing manufacturers to meet environmental regulations.


  • A system of incorporating a non-VOC (water) to replace VOC components by volume.
  • A methodology of formulating and water emulsification techniques to maintain the performance of conventional alkyd coatings and achieve long term stability.
  • A technology in which knowledge and expertise are combined with innovation to meet the demands of local markets and legislations.

Lorama’s team of laboratory experts assists in the formulation and implementation of the technology to provide maximum benefits in both cost savings and performance. This is Lorama’s business specialty and why Lorama is world renowned for creating exceptionally stable emulsions.
The resulting LPRT-modified coating remains dilutable with mineral spirits, D40 and other aliphatic and aromatic solvents.

LPRT is the preferred method for VOC reduction technology to achieve 2010 European VOC compliance in solvent based systems. Manufacturers across 28 European Union Countries use Lorama Polysaccharide technology and Lorama’s expertise to provide the performance their markets demand.

In addition to Alkyd modification, LPRT benefits diverse applications such as:

  • Foundry coatings
  • Fire retardant coatings
  • Sound insulation
  • Pigment wetting and stabilization
  • Bio-based film forming resin
  • Temporary Coatings
