Published on 2016-04-08. Author : SpecialChem

Mallard Creek Polymers, Inc. (MCP) experts understand the challenges that companies are facing when creating the next formulation for their marketplace. The sales and R&D people at MCP work hand-in-hand with formulation chemists, operations staff, and purchasing to design synthetic emulsion polymers to meet specific needs identified by a potential customer. By combining a deep understanding of coatings technology, cross- fertilization from other application segments, a strong existing product portfolio, and a broad array of chemistry options, the company can react quickly to changing and demanding requirements.

Polymer & Styrene-butadiene Latex

Two recently announced grades became available because of the company’s approach to customization. Rovene® 6027 is the latest all acrylic emulsion polymer, developed as a low VOC workhorse emulsion for many paint and coating applications. Rovene® 4541 was designed for specialty coating applications where very high filler loading is desirable. This styrene-butadiene latex is one of many examples where the company continues to carry out R&D on this unique chemistry for all markets served. Often referred to as styrene butadiene rubber, this technology delivers outstanding water resistance and binding for low cost formulation design.

Many of the company’s newly developed products can be found in the Coatings Selection Guide and Construction Selection Guides. In many cases, though, the products are not available for general market use due to the structure of the project. To discuss options and project proposals, R&D and sales personnel are available for meetings during the American Coating Show from April 10-14 at Booth #755.
