Emerald Kalama Chemical at ACS 2014 to Promote K-FLEX® Platform for Coatings

Published on 2014-04-03. Author : SpecialChem

Emerald Kalama Chemical will showcase its K-FLEX® platform for Coatings at ACS 2014 (Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Apr. 8-10; Booth 521).

William Arendt, research fellow, will present on how K-FLEX® benzoates lower VOCs in coatings while actually improving performance during session 13.5, "Innovation in Benzoate Technology for Coatings Applications", on Wednesday April 9th at 11:30am.

The K-FLEX® platform includes plasticizers and coalescents that provide an excellent alternative to phthalates and traditional high-VOC materials, which have come under scrutiny due to various health and environmental concerns, as well as industry regulations. The REACH-compliant K-FLEX® platform provides a range of low-VOC, non-SVHC products, including those with certain clearances for use in food-contact applications, and is designed for use in adhesives; sealants; caulk, paint and coatings; graphic arts; plastisol and vinyl systems. In these applications, K-FLEX® products are known for enhancing film formation and adhesion, processing characteristics and improving the resistance of the end-product to oil, grease and water. Other important benefits include improved scrub resistance, gloss development in coatings, stain resistance and toughened wear layers in plastisols when compared with other materials.
