Doresco® Acrylic Resins

Doresco® acrylic resins are designed for high performance printing, and packaging, industrial metal, and specialty construction applications.

Doresco lacquers and release products enhance the performance of coatings used in hot stamp foil (HSF) applications. When incorporated into HSF lacquers, Doresco engineered polymers help boost key attributes. High glass transition temperatures (Tg) impart thermal stability to improve durability during shaping operations. For films that will be embossed for special effects, Doresco additives increase hardness levels, resulting in greater chip and mar resistance. Other benefits include high optical clarity, impressive gloss and excellent color retention. The end result is greater package design freedom and a strong shelf presence.

Used as tape liners in pressure-sensitive adhesives and in release liners for transfer printing, Doresco release coatings can be combined with traditional release coat waxes to optimize film transfer.

Doresco acrylic resins are also used in High Vacuum Metallization (HVM) applications as pre and post lacquers delivering the high gloss and performance properties needed in metallized labels for returnable glass bottles. Doresco acrylic resins enhance the ink retention performance during the washing process of the bottles.

In industrial metal applications, Doresco polymers provide the gloss, chemical resistance, adhesion and long-term durability necessary to meet the toughest aesthetic and protection requirements.

In specialty construction applications, Doresco polymers provide toughness and flexibility for interior and exterior applications. Upon aging, air dried applications will exhibit the same end properties as baked systems.
