Published on 2016-04-13. Author : SpecialChem

BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- OMNOVA Solutions launches three new products for coatings, PLIOTEC® WPM120 latex, PLIOTEC® EL135 acrylic elastomeric latex and PLIOTEC® SC140 waterborne direct-to-metal (DTM) resin at ACS 2016.

PLIOTEC® WPM120 latex combines superior water resistance, excellent tensile strength, and good elongation properties, delivering best-in-class performance.

“Given the strong growth outlook for construction in the Americas, we believe a waterproofing barrier product with improved performance will be welcomed by builders and remodelers,” said Tom Hartle, General Manager, Specialty Coatings & Ingredients at OMNOVA Solutions. “PLIOTEC WPM120 latex demonstrates a step forward in waterproofing barrier performance. Further, it is produced in our U.S. facilities, close to our customers in the Americas, which allows for fast delivery and security of supply.”

When formulated into a coating, PLIOTEC WPM120 features superior resistance to hydrostatic pressure and water absorption. In tests, the product outperformed commercially available membrane coating products, demonstrating that it is ideal for use in waterproofing and damp proofing coatings. It also can be used in barrier coatings to reduce crack transmission in tile and stone floors, and as a moisture vapor barrier under all types of floor coverings.

“PLIOTEC WPM120 has been designed for excellent adhesion and is ideal for creating a continuous waterproofing barrier in single-family, multi-family, and commercial construction applications,” said Rich Stewart, Americas Marketing Manager for Coating Specialties at OMNOVA Solutions. “It has superior water resistance properties and will deliver excellent performance in all types of barrier coatings.”

The advantages of PLIOTEC WPM120 in a formulated waterproofing or damp proofing product include:

• Excellent water resistance and low water absorption
• Superior tensile strength and elongation with excellent elastic recovery
• Outstanding adhesion
• Low moisture vapor transmission rate
• Excellent alkali resistance

OMNOVA’s PLIOTEC® EL135 acrylic elastomeric latex for roof coatings is designed for use on a range of roof coating substrates, PLIOTEC EL135 provides outstanding adhesion to high density polyurethane foam, an excellent balance of tensile strength and elongation properties, and remarkable dirt pick-up resistance.

“Commercial roof coatings must perform under extremely demanding levels of heat, UV exposure, and moisture,” said Tom Hartle, General Manager, Specialty Coatings & Ingredients at OMNOVA. “Specifically designed for commercial roofs, PLIOTEC EL135 delivers excellent toughness, flexibility, and outstanding adhesion to a range of popular roof substrates.”

OMNOVA’s PLIOTEC EL135 latex is designed to create a coating that is both flexible and tough, so that it can expand and contract with the substrate throughout daily and seasonal temperature cycles. “Achieving building energy efficiency certification for a coating is an important requirement for our customers,” said Rich Stewart, Americas Marketing Manager for Coating Specialties at OMNOVA Solutions. “PLIOTEC EL135 latex not only helps them achieve certification but provides best-in-class performance across key requirements, including adhesion to polyurethane foam, which is one of the more difficult substrates. Further, it has been designed for easy formulation into end-use coatings.”

PLIOTEC EL135 also functions well in coatings for vertical exterior masonry, flashing compounds and sealants.

PLIOTEC EL135 latex offers a number of important benefits in end use:

• Outstanding adhesion to high density polyurethane foam
• Excellent balance of tensile and elongation properties
• Superior dirt pick-up resistance
• Excellent resistance to water absorption
• Great adhesion to concrete and masonry
• Coatings formulated with PLIOTEC EL135 can be certified in energy efficiency programs.

OMNOVA’s PLIOTEC® SC140 waterborne direct-to-metal (DTM) resin is specifically designed for zero-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) DTM coatings, PLIOTEC SC140 resin provides superior adhesion to metals, excellent early water resistance and gloss retention properties.

“As demand for low- and zero-VOC waterborne DTM products to replace solventborne coatings continues to increase, we are excited to introduce a zero-VOC product that surpasses performance expectations,” said Tom Hartle, General Manager, Specialty Coatings & Ingredients at OMNOVA. “PLIOTEC SC140 resin uses a new, proprietary polymer architecture to deliver breakthrough performance in corrosion protection.”

The new PLIOTEC SC140 resin is designed to create a barrier to water, balancing low permeability with other critical properties such as flexibility, gloss and color retention, and adhesion, all without the use of VOCs or anti-corrosive pigments. “Achieving true DTM performance in a zero-VOC coating has been an elusive goal for many of the industry’s top brands,” said Rich Stewart, Americas Marketing Manager for Coating Specialties at OMNOVA Solutions. “We’re now able to offer a waterborne solution with superior corrosion resistance, as well as a number of other essential properties, without adding VOCs to the formulated product.”

In addition to superior corrosion resistance, PLIOTEC SC140 resin’s performance advantages include:

• Early Rain Resistance – Provides an application advantage in exterior environments when there is potential for inclement weather.
• Gloss Resistance – Achieves a lasting high-quality DTM finish for residential, commercial, and light industrial applications.
• Block Resistance – Ensures integrity of the DTM finish around windows and doorways where painted surfaces meet.

OMNOVA Solutions representatives will be available to discuss PLIOTEC® WPM120 latex, PLIOTEC® EL135 acrylic elastomeric latex and PLIOTEC® SC140 waterborne direct-to-metal (DTM) resin at ACS booth #1555.
