OMNOVA Solutions Launches PLIOTEC® HDT12 Resin for Anti-corrosion DTM Coatings

Published on 2015-01-26. Author : SpecialChem

BEACHWOOD -- OMNOVA Solutions has announced the North American and Latin American introduction of PLIOTEC® HDT 12 resin specifically designed for the formulation of waterborne, high-gloss, anti-corrosion direct-to-metal (DTM) coatings. Already available in Europe, PLIOTEC HDT 12 provides superior adhesion to ferrous and non-ferrous metals and excellent water resistance properties.

“Globally, there is an increasing demand for waterborne DTM products to replace solventborne coatings. The challenge is making it work effectively without the use of anti-corrosion pigments, which may have negative environmental impacts,” Rick Sandford, General Manager of OMNOVA’s global Coating Specialties business. “PLIOTEC HDT 12 resin uses our new, proprietary polymer architecture to deliver breakthrough performance in corrosion protection.”

OMNOVA’s new Hydrophobic Dispersion Technology is an advanced polymer architecture designed to create a barrier to water, balancing low permeability with other critical properties such as flexibility, gloss and color retention, and adhesion. “Hydrophobic Dispersion Technology is how PLIOTEC HDT 12 achieves superior waterborne DTM performance,” said Rich Stewart, OMNOVA Solutions’ Coating Resins Market Manager for the Americas. “We’re excited to offer this capability to our customers in North American and Latin American markets.” PLIOTEC HDT 12 already has achieved significant commercial success in Europe with OMNOVA customers.

In addition to being APE-free (alkylphenol ethoxylate free) and not requiring anti-corrosion pigments, PLIOTEC HDT 12 has other environmentally preferred benefits including no added formaldehyde, low demand for coalescing solvents, and low levels of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

PLIOTEC HDT 12 is recommended for waterborne DTM paints and primers used on metal and wrought iron, metal sidings, and other architectural features in residential, commercial, and light industrial applications.
