Solvay Novecare, a key global business unit of the Solvay Group and also a worldwide leader in specialty surfactants, is featuring a line of high-efficiency Rhodoline® 3000 and Rhodoline® 4000 dispersants for water-based pigment concentrates at ChinaCoat 2015, Shanghai. These products provide exceptional color intensity, high stability and optimum viscosity, facilitating the development of formulations intended for different segments, such as those used in paint for construction (housing), industrial coating and printing inks.

The featured dispersant product lines expand the portfolio of solutions containing low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and free of alkyl phenols (APE).

"Solvay has been a global leader in emulsion polymerization enabling the conversion to water based systems with our specialty surfactants and monomers. We understand surface chemistry and have the right building blocks to offer effective, tailored additive solutions that can further boost performance to a variety of coatings," commented Patrice Pinsard, Vice-President of Coatings, Novecare.

Included in the line-up is a comprehensive portfolio of products dedicated to the coatings industry. There are solutions for surfactants and functional monomers for the production of emulsion polymers, meeting performance and sustainability requirements such as low VOC, biodegradability and low ecotoxicity. Paint additives solutions which provide benefits in formulations and applications are also featured.

The products which are featured in the ChinaCoat 2015 are part of three main solutions:

• Color Solutions which include the Rhodoline® series
• Binder Solutions such as the Rhodafac® surfactant solutions and functional monomers in the Sipomer® series, and
• Performance Solutions such as Rhodoline® Open Time Extender (OTE) 500 and Rhodoline® FT 100 Xtrim which improve Freeze Thaw Stability

To enhance the local needs of the Asia Pacific region, Solvay has recently invested in a new production facility in Singapore, concentrating on the development of specialty surfactants. This is timely with the region’s focus on eco-friendly formulations.

"The coatings industry is getting more and more demanding, wanting better performance and efficiency while aligning with social and environmental best practices. Our mission is to meet the specific demands our clients make on their products, offering solutions that deliver superior properties to those traditionally found on the market," said Patrice.
