Published on 2015-07-03. Author : SpecialChem

CHARLOTTE, NC -- Mallard Creek Polymers continues to expand its focus across specialty coatings segments with new products for wood, concrete, and barrier coatings. Using the approach of focusing on specific customer requirements vs. industry needs, the company continues to develop and introduce many new products. Based on technology leadership in barrier coatings and styrene-butadiene latex products, BarrierPro® 4546 has recently been developed to create low-cost barrier coatings for wood and synthetic substrates. The superior adhesion of SB chemistry, coupled with water resistance and film formation of this new product, allows coating experts to develop low MVTR coatings or more ‘breathable’ water-resistive coatings. This product can also be used to complement MCP’s extensive offering for the building and construction market. The company’s offering includes products like BarrierPro 4551, Rovene® 4106, Rovene 6121 for membranes, elastomers, mastics, etc.

The company has been introducing many new acrylic polymer emulsions for coatings, printing and packaging, etc. The newest products for coatings include Rovene 6127, Rovene 6133, and Rovene 6027. Rovene 6127 has been developed for improved hot tire resistance on concrete. Rovene 6133 has demonstrated excellent water resistance on wood when UV resistance is required. Rovene 6027 is the newest grade available as general purpose, work-horse all acrylic polymer emulsion.
