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 (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
  • Waterborne adhesion promoters, both chlorinated and nonchlorinated, designed to provide excellent adhesion to modified polypropylene substrates and other plastics
  • Resin intermediates for developing resins that are useful in powder, high-solids, or waterborne coatings
  • Sulfopolyesters with a broad range of physical properties that satisfy formulators’ performance requirements
  • Performance additives developed for paved recreational surfaces (basketball courts, tennis courts, track runways, artificial turf, etc.)
