Wacker to show SILRES REN70-M binder at ECS 2017

Feb '17
Wacker, a chemical company based in Germany, will show its new binder SILRES REN70-M for heat-resistant coatings, at the European Coatings Show (ECS) 2017, paints and coatings expo, from April 4 to 6, 2017, in Nuremberg, Germany, in hall 1, booth 1-510. Wacker will also present the new silicone intermediate SILRES IC 235 for weather-resistant coatings.

Combined with suitable pigments and fillers, the phenyl methyl silicone resin offers extreme thermal stability of up to 600 °C in coatings that are stable at high temperatures, making the product especially suitable for formulating coatings for industrial plants, engine parts, stoves or incinerators. In addition, SILRES REN70-M is virtually free of aromatic solvents (< 0.1 per cent). Wacker will also present the new silicone intermediate SILRES IC 235 for weather-resistant coatings. This silicone resin contains absolutely no aromatics and is used in coatings for bridges, wind turbine stators, and industrial plants.

SILRES REN70-M is virtually free of aromatic solvents, thus providing an alternative to conventional binders for extremely heat- and weather-resistant industrial coatings. These kind of silicone resin binders are typically supplied as a solution in aromatic solvents such as xylene. Instead, SILRES REN70-M uses 1-methoxy-2-propyl acetate as a solvent, which is biodegradable.

SILRES REN70-M offers the ideal combination of hardness and flexibility. As a binder in heat-resistant coatings it effectively protects metal surfaces from corrosion even at high operating temperatures or rapid temperature fluctuations.

The binder dries tack-free even at room temperature. SILRES REN70- M is also characterised by full chemical curability, which takes place via reactive silanol groups. SILRES REN70-M is ideally suited to use as a binder in coatings for industrial plants, pipework, or engine parts. SILRES REN70-M also provides the resistance needed for coatings on barbecues, chimneys, wood-burning stoves, or gas-fired incinerators.

At this year’s ECS, Wacker will be presenting a new polysiloxane-based intermediate to optimise organic binders. SILRES IC 235 consists of a methoxy-functional phenyl methyl polysiloxane with a low molecular weight distribution. The intermediate SILRES IC 235 does not require any aromatics.

Weathering and lab tests have shown that SILRES IC 235 provides for substantially improved gloss retention, greater protection against weathering and an extended useful life. SILRES IC 235 is used in coatings for static metal structures such as bridges or railings and in industrial plants. (GK)
