Evonik Launches Liquid Adhesion Resins for Coatings

Published on 2016-09-27. Author : SpecialChem

Evonik has launched two new adhesion resins for coating formulations. TEGO® AddBond LP 1600 and LP 1611 have excellent flow properties and are suitable for food contact. Additionally, they reduce viscosity without increasing the volatile organic compounds (VOC) content of the coating. This unique combination of characteristics allows for their use as adhesion resins in high solids applications. As an added advantage, the high active ingredient content (100%) reduces the cost of storage and transportation.

Evonik Launches Liquid Adhesion Resins for Coatings

Evonik’s Fluid TEGO® AddBond LP:

  • They are polyester resins that are formulated for addition to an existing coating system
  • Developed specifically for high solids systems (such as 2K PU, 2K EP, baking enamel, or alkyd formulations)
  • The products are particularly suitable for industrial items (such as ship coatings, and general industrial coatings) that are not coated in an industrial environment
  • Approved by FDA, both AddBond LP grades are suitable for food contact
  • The two products also meet the requirements for printing inks used in packaging stipulated by the Swiss Consumer Goods Ordinance (Swiss A)
  • They are not classified as hazardous goods, making them safe to handle

TEGO® AddBond LP 1600 and TEGO® AddBond LP 1611 differ in their inherent viscosity: LP 1611 is slightly more viscous than LP 1600 but has a lower impact on the hardness of the final system and thus, on the mechanical properties of the surface.

In contrast, LP 1600 is less viscous and therefore reduces the VOC content even more than LP 1611.

Due to increasingly strict worldwide emission limits for VOCs, coatings manufacturers are facing greater limitations in their raw material selection and are looking for new ways to adjust their formulations. Evonik continuously expands its additives and resins portfolio to support its customers in this effort.
