Mallard Creek Polymers has introduced a valuable coating and binder technology for the construction industry. It developed a new acrylic polymer emulsion and styrene acrylic.
The new acrylic polymers are developed to supplement the extensive portfolio of styrene-butadiene latexes the company offers to many building and construction applications.
| Mallard Creek Polymers Unveils Styrene
Acrylic Polymer for Coatings
- It is designed as a multipurpose acrylic grade
- Can be used in thick film paints or membranes
- It has cement compatibility to allow adequate open time, and is plasticizer-free
MCP had previously introduced Tylac® 4193
, a styrene-butadiene copolymer
with very similar performance. The SBR provides improved adhesion while the acrylic latex has improved UV stability. The open time and workability are essentially equivalent.
The company dedicates much of its Research and Development time designing customized products to meet a single user specific applications requirement. MCP products can be available to a unique customer, while other products are developed for any application, market, or customer.
