Arkema to exhibit waterborne polymer at American Coatings

Apr '14
Arkema will be introducing its groundbreaking Kynar AquatecCRX latex at the 2014 American Coatings Show, which is being held April 7 to 9 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.  
 
Kynar AquatecCRX latex is a waterborne polymer dispersion for producing highly weatherable waterborne, air-dry paints and coatings based on KynarPVDF resins with low levels of volatile organic compounds. 
 
While many coating properties, including weathering resistance, are obtained from the Kynarresin, other enhancements, such as early hardness, solvent resistance and adhesion, are obtained by modifications to the acrylic component of Kynar AquatecCRX latex. 
 
This innovative new technology is designed for high-performance OEM applications where outstanding weather resistance is required (particularly color fade and chalk resistance), along with a high level of scratch resistance and resistance to organic solvents.  
 
Senior technical and business experts from Arkema will deliver the following technical papers and presentations on the new Kynar AquatecCRX latex technology at the show, April 8, 12:00 p.m. (Session 6.6): “Tailoring Crosslink Density and Index in 2K Waterborne PVDF Coatings”; presented by Dr. Kurt Wood, a principal scientist in Arkema’s Fluoropolymers R&D Division.
 
April 10, 11:20 a.m. (Show Floor): “Introducing Kynar AquatecCRX PVDF latex for Highly Weatherable and Durable Aqueous 2K Coatings”; presented by Charles Weidner, senior business development engineer for Arkema’s Fluoropolymers Division.
 
“Window and door profile manufacturers who are familiar with the extreme longevity and low maintenance of Kynar 500resin-based coatings on metal substrates are demanding that same level of performance on vinyl and pultruded fiberglass substrates,” said Weidner. 
 
“The advanced Kynar AquatecCRX latex meets this need as the first aqueous 2K system that achieves AAMA 615 and AAMA 625 performance-based standards with the outstanding weathering and abrasion-resistance properties of Kynar 500PVDF resin-based coatings.”
