Published on 2016-05-26. Author : SpecialChem

VILLEJUST, FRANCE -- OMNOVA Solutions, one of the global manufacturers of specialty emulsion polymers, unveiled its new PLIOTEC® HDT16 binder designed for the formulation of anticorrosion DTM (Direct to Metal) paints and multi-surface renovation paints.

PLIOTEC® HDT16 delivers increased hardness with superior adhesion to both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Like OMNOVA’s PLIOTEC HDT12 polymer, this newest addition to OMNOVA’s portfolio of high-performance resins offers excellent water resistance properties. This advantage is due to a unique polymer design and manufacturing process that results in hydrophobic functional polymers with a minimal amount of free surfactants. “OMNOVA’s Hydrophobic Dispersion Technology has made PLIOTEC HDT12 the environmentally preferred choice for the formulation of DTM coatings”, said Jean-Marie Schmuck, Marketing Manager, Coating Resins, EMEAI. “PLIOTEC HDT16 offers a performance boost for DTM light industrial applications and is also well suited for the formulation of multi-surface renovation paints. Indeed, PLIOTEC HDT16 delivers excellent results for both horizontal and vertical uses, with fast hardness development and superior adhesion on a wide variety of substrates, including metals, ceramic tiles, PVC, concrete, glass, wood, PU foam and more”.

OMNOVA’s PLIOTEC HDT resins provide anti-corrosion paints with very low water permeability and excellent corrosion resistance, without the need for inhibitive pigments. Paints formulated with PLIOTEC HDT resins are characterized by a high gloss level, with greater ageing resistance and color retention. They also offer both mechanical and aesthetic qualities (film without residual tack, increased impact resistance and a smooth finish).
