Fast drying polyisocyanate is based on the widely used aliphatic hexamethylene-1,6-diisocyanate (HDI) – enhanced to dry polyurethane faster. These are primarily used for high performance, fast drying polyurethane applications to improve weatherability and UV/chemical resistance.
HPA is a hydroxyl functional acrylic monomer used in high performance coating applications. HPA can be used to attach hydroxyl groups to an acrylic polymer backbone to create sites for reaction with a variety of cross-linking agents. Compared with hydroxyalkyl methacrylates, HPA allows faster curing cycles and reduced baking temperatures. It can also be formulated at […]
Glycidyl Methacrylate is a unique monomer that allows chemists the ability to put oxirane or epoxy groups into acrylic resins, thereby allowing a variety of further cross-linking or curing reactions. GMA is used in UV coatings, inks, adhesives, photos resists, ion exchange resins, chelating resins, photosensitive resins and dental applications.
Kowa’s line of specialty monomers is available to add a functional phosphate group to the acrylic backbone found in many emulsion polymer systems. Such functionality can impart adhesion promotion to various substrates, corrosion resistance, and improved film strength. Besides polymers systems, 2-HEMA-Phosphate can be used in pigment systems to promote adhesion. Also, commonly known as […]
Low Viscosity HDI-polyisocyanates Polyisocyanate based on the widely used aliphatic hexamethylene-1,6-diisocyanate (HDI). These are primarily used for high performance coatings applications to improve weatherability and UV/chemical resistance. These low and ultra low viscosity grades have 100% symmetrical chemical structure enabling better performance compared to competitors which have slight biuret contamination. The higher quality is great for […]
