Performance Technologies

Low VOC, Non-VOC, and Non-HAP Technologies

  • Coalescents, providing a wide range of attributes to meet desired performance and regulatory needs
  • Additives (waterborne), allowing formulators to significantly reduce VOC content in trim and wall paints by replacing volatile glycols while improving open time and wet edge.
  • Additives (waterborne), designed to improve the application, productivity, and performance of automotive (OEM & refinish) coatings
  • Additives (solventborne), developed for high-solids coatings to provide decreased tack-free time, improved sag resistance, and wider window for polishing with minimal impact on VOC content.
  • Specialty ketones with excellent solvent activity for developing high-solids coatings
  • Ester solvents, including non-HAP products with low MIR values
  • Methyl acetate, a VOC-exempt solvent in the U.S.
  • Waterborne adhesion promoters, both chlorinated and non-chlorinated, designed to provide excellent adhesion to modified polypropylene substrates and other plastics
  • Resin intermediates for developing resins useful in powder, high-solids or waterborne coatings
  • Sulfopolyesters A broad range of physical properties that satisfy the formulators’ performance requirements.
