“Our goal at ABRAFATI is to introduce our customers, as well as other leaders across the industry, to our multi-technology and multi-product offering that is unique in the market,” said Pedro Medeiros, General Manager for Arkema subsidiary Coatex.
“Since the last exhibition where only Coatex was present with its waterborne rheology additives, Arkema has significantly expanded its offering and built a unique portfolio that now includes acrylic monomers and emulsions for water-based paints, polyester and alkyd resins for solvent-based paints, powder polyester resins, ultra high dry content resins and PVDF fluorinated polymers for external coatings. Arkema’s offering in paints and coatings now rivals any in the industry.”
Rheology control and dispersants
With over 40 years of expertise in rheological additives for aqueous formulations, Arkema subsidiary Coatex is a leading technology / solution partner to the global coatings market. Recent innovations focus on key current issues that today’s formulators are challenged with, such as reduction of emissions (VOC), sustainable formulating and TiO2 optimization.
Coatex proposes a broad selection of thickeners within each key technologies Urethane-based (HEUR) and acrylic-based (HASE & ASE)
Coapur: a range of associative polyurethane thickeners which covers a broad spectrum of rheology profiles, from xception to pseudo plastic, delivering exceptional flow and xceptio behavior. Coapur 975 W, new KU builder with xceptional color acceptance will be presented during the show.
Rheotech: a range of associative acrylic thickeners to achieve in can appearance, syneresis control, outstanding thickening effectiveness with excellent environment profiles. Such properties have made Rheotech ideal alternative to cellulosic thickeners.
Viscoatex: a range of acrylic thickeners, broadly used thanks to their robustness and versatility, especially in adhesives.
Coatex offer comprises two distinct ranges of dispersing agents:
Ecodis range is recommended when both outstanding shelf life and cost/performance ratio are required for medium to high PVC formulations.
Coadis, a range agents designed to meet specific requirements of coatings such as gloss, corrosion or scrub resistance. Coadis dispersing agents are recommended for TiO2 optimization (Bumper technology).
Coating resins and opaque polymers
Arkema Coating Resins, a business unit of Arkema, is showcasing one of the industry’s broadest technology and binder offerings.
For decades, Arkema Coating Resins has provided one of the industry’s widest arrays of acrylic-based polymers for use in architectural coatings. The company will be showcasing recent advances, including new SNAP 728 structured nano-acrylic polymers for higher performance trim and wall paints.
SNAP 728 binder offers these benefits:
- Controlled morphology results in good film formation properties
- Formulating flexibility results in good application properties
- Cured films demonstrate high gloss, excellent block resistance, plus good hardness and flexibility.
