Published on 2014-04-09. Author : SpecialChem

DALLAS -- Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company and a global leader in vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) emulsions, invites attendees of the American Coatings Show (ACS) to learn more about its new emulsion products for architectural paints. The company is also showcasing its broader product portfolio for the coatings and adhesives industries.

"Celanese is pleased to exhibit once again at the premier trade event for the coatings industry in the region - the American Coatings Show," said Brad Moncla, marketing manager. "With technical and commercial experts representing this region's architectural coatings industry, ACS is an ideal setting for us to launch our new emulsion products - namely EcoVAE® 450, Avicor® 385 and Avicor® 390. These products represent solutions to many of the industry's issues including low-VOC primers, stain resistance and broad formulation latitude. Attendees will also see the breadth of the Celanese product portfolio for the coatings and adhesives industries including our solvents, vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), EVA polymers and emulsions."

New Solutions for Architectural Paints

Celanese is adding to its EcoVAE® line of VAE emulsions with EcoVAE® 450 for low odor primer applications. This product has excellent wet/dry adhesion to a variety of substrates including alkyds, ceramics, and aluminum.

The Avicor® line of emulsions grows with a number of new products. Avicor® 385 is an all new vinyl acrylic which is APE-free and designed to give superior performance in interior and exterior paints. The combination of high molecular weight, excellent film formation, and water resistance within the product results in excellent stain and scrub resistance while exhibiting great toughness and durability. The product is also designed to provide broad latitude in paint formulation across a range of sheens from flat to semi-gloss. Avicor® 390 is a vinyl acrylic emulsion capable of creating very low VOC interior and exterior paints which exhibit excellent stain resistance.

Solutions for Automotive Paints

Celanese Polysolvan® O solvent will also be highlighted for use in automotive paints. Because of its very low volatility, Polysolvan® O is used chiefly as a paint additive in the form of a highly effective flow agent.

Solutions for Industrial Adhesives and Building Products

Celanese offers a range of products for use in industrial adhesives for paper packaging and converting, woodworking and the building and construction industry. Celanese has a broad array of VAE, styrene acrylic, PVAc and vinyl acrylic emulsions in addition to the Ateva® brand of EVA polymers for use in industrial adhesives for wood and packaging applications. In addition, the company will present solutions for the building products industry with its TufCOR® line of emulsions. Celanese will also be exhibiting at the Adhesives and Sealants Council expo April 28 in Orlando.
