Resins & Binders

Resins and binders are used to deliver desired protective and performance properties, enhanced aesthetic appeal, resistance to chemicals, water and abrasion resistance for a variety of materials, such as coatings for rigid substrates, inks, coatings for flexible substrates and adhesives. The right resin and binder technology will improve the ease and speed of applying coatings to surfaces, and provide an alternative to 2-component, solvent-borne systems with 1-component, water-borne systems.
