Paints & Coatings

We offer a variety of capabilities for the custom manufacturing of paint additives. Our chemical expertise, equipment matrix, hot oil temperature, low vacuum and four monomer feed capability enable synthesis of additives that serve the needs of this market. Our knowledge in solvent polymerization and functionalization of such chemistries and state of the art engineering and safety control, allows MFG the ability to handle low flash point solvents, making us highly desired as a single point of production.

Custom Manufacturing

Polyester resin modified based on fatty acids and polyols including dicarboxylic acids or carboxylic acid, phthalic anhydride, maleic anhydride and triglyceride oils. This technology is largely used in paints, varnishes and casting application. Originally alkyds were compounds of glycerol and phthalic acid.

Polyester is a category of polymers that contain the ester functional group in every repeat unit of their main chain. Unsaturated polyesters are produced from alcohols and unsaturated acids and are cross-linked thereafter. Polyesters are widely used as a finish on high-quality wood products. Cured polyesters can be sanded and polished to a high-gloss, durable finish.

Synthesis where a monomer is dissolved in a non-reactive solvent that contains a catalyst or initiator. The reaction results in a polymer which is also soluble in the chosen solvent. Generally, these polymers have a very high molecular weight which translate in high viscosity, which is mitigated by the use of solvents. This technology involves applications where the presence of a solvent is desired anyway, as is the case for varnish and adhesives in an aqueous system.

Bisphenol A diglycidyl ether, which is a typical resin converted to epoxy glue upon the addition of a hardener. This technology tag with alkyd resins and is used in paints and varnishes and harden or cure by exposure to oxygen in the air. Generally, the word “resin” has been applied in the modern world to nearly any component of a liquid that will set into a hard lacquer or enamel-like finish.

is a type of radical polymerization that usually starts with an emulsion incorporating water, monomers, and surfactants. Polymerization takes place in the latex/colloid particles that form spontaneously in the first few minutes of the process. These latex particles are typically 100 nm in size, and are made of many individual polymer chains. The particles are prevented from coagulating with each other because each particle is surrounded by the surfactant. Under certain condition, the latex particle break releasing a very large molecule with specific performance.
