Stearyl Isocyanate

ODI is a mixture that is used for dyeing and printing auxiliary. This is most commonly used in Angora textiles. This waxy, white solid can be stored under normal conditions in order to keep it chemically stable.

Trimethylolpropane triacrylate

TMPTA is a trifunctional monomer used in the manufacture of plastics, adhesives, acrylic glue, anaerobic sealants, and ink. It is useful for its low volatility and fast cure response. It has the property of resistance against weather, chemical, water and abrasion.

Methyl Propylene Tri Glycol

MFTG is a colorless liquid with an ether-like odor. TPM evaporates slowly and mixes well with water. MFTG is a solvent and coupling agent. MFTG formulations are used for the following applications: rust, paint, and varnish removers; stamp-pad inks; ball-point and felt-tip writing pen inks; hard-surface cleaners; and penetrating oils. This product is regularly stocked in […]


1,2-Butanediol is a colorless liquid that is 100% soluble in water. This substance as an ink solvent and also to produce polyester resins and plasticizers. It’s also possible to react 1,2-butanediol with an unsaturated dicarboxylic acid for use as an unsaturated polyester resin raw material. It can be considered as an alternative of 1,6 Hexanediol.

Aluminum Paste Series Leafing, Non-Leafing and Fine Leafing

Leafing and non-leafing standard grades are widely employed in silver paints, industrial coatings, heat and corrosion resistant coatings, resin-kneading, and many other fields of application. Fine leafing grades with their extremely small flake size provide exceptionally high hiding power. In various combinations of flake size, solvent types, and non-volatile content, they provide high, application-specific performance in […]

Hydroxypropyl methacrylate

HPMA is a clear, colorless liquid with a pungent, sweet odor. The product contains low levels of a polymerization inhibitor along with small amounts of methacrylic acid, and propylene oxide. HPMA is used in the manufacture of acrylic polymers for adhesives, inks, and coatings for automotive, appliance and metal applications. The added hydroxyl groups improve adhesion […]

Waterborne Barium Sulfates Series

Barifine® BF-21, BF-25 and BF-26 are excellent dispersions with superior transparency in water-born coatings due to surface treatment. These products show improvement in the haze-free gloss and jetness of black paints; as well as in the haze-free gloss and saturation of organic color pigments. Some recommended uses for these products include automotive topcoat and automotive surfacer […]

Glycol Ethers

Low-odor and low-metallic glycol ether using proprietary purification technologies. Glycol ethers are mainly used as solvents in paint, ink, detergent and electronic material. Aromatic, aliphatic and ester-type glycol ethers are also used as raw materials in polymers such as acrylic and polyester.

Asahi Kasei Aluminium Paste

Asahi Kasei Aluminium Paste is used as a pigment for paint, printing ink, resin mixing. It is a silver paster with a petroleum odor. Reacts with water, acid, alkali, oxidizing agents, metal oxide and halogen compounds to form hydrogen gas. Reaction is accelerated by heat.

Acrylic Microspheres

This product series of fine PMMA spherical particles are developed using exclusive polymerization techniques to create world-class acrylic microspheres controlled for particle-size ranges and distributions, and degrees of cross-linkage. Each series has various grades depending on the average particle size; from the smallest MP-1451 with just 150 nanometer average particle size up to MP-1000 with 400 nm. If you need a specific […]

Low and Ultra-low Viscosity HDI-based polyisocyanates

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 […]
