Dow Corning Corporation has introduced a new silicone resin to meet the need for high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings with improved flexibility, impact resistance and film build.

Dow Corning® 2405 Resin is a solventless methyl methoxy resin. When catalyzed by titanium compounds, such as TnBT, the product cures within 60 minutes at ambient temperature to form a medium-hard coating with good solvent resistance and high heat resistance.

This new resin is designed to help formulators overcome limitations – including brittleness, poor impact resistance and film-building constraints – associated with resins traditionally used to formulate high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings.

"Paint formulators are under pressure to deliver more-sustainable products. This is reflected in the demand for less energy-intensive curing systems for heat-resistant coatings," said Dow Corning Coatings Global Segment Leader Chris Wall. "With its solventless delivery, tin-free cure and improved impact resistance, Dow Corning 2405 Resin significantly extends the formulating space for room-temperature-curing coatings for high-temperature applications."
