Gantrade offers a cross-linking technology that is based on diacetone acrylamide (DAAM) and adipic acid dihydrazide (ADH). This technology helps produce paint formulations that improve safety and performance. Other benefits of this technology for paint and coatings resins include enhanced resistance to stains, abrasions, and other damage, as well as a high degree of gloss retention and solvent resistance.
Gantrade stays up-to-date on the latest developments in intermediate and monomer production. This allows us to source paint and coating resin materials made with new technologies that improve performance and ensure the highest quality.
From traffic marking paints and architectural paints to industrial and marine coatings, resins play a key role in manufacturing these products. The types of resins used for paint and coatings depend on their application and the qualities needed, such as UV resistance, moisture resistance, or transparency.
Resins are organic compounds that are used in the manufacture of coatings and paint products. These resins are used to produce paint and coatings for a variety of applications, including interior and exterior applications. Vinyl and acrylic monomers, the building blocks of polymers, are used to produce some paint and coatings resins. Solution, emulsion, and dispersant polymers are a few types of polymers used in paint and coatings industries. Diols and polyols are also used to make resins for coatings and paint products.
Paint and coatings resins can be used for a wide range of applications, from producing marine paints to manufacturing architectural coatings. Other applications for paint and coatings resins include automotive refinish coatings, industrial maintenance, special purpose coatings, and traffic marking paints. Depending on application and industry, resins can provide specific qualities or properties, such as a high degree of resistance to severe weather conditions, UV exposure, or water exposure.
Epoxy resin coatings are often used in industrial settings due to their ability to handle moderately corrosive environments. Acrylic paint and coatings are typically used in the architectural industry. These resins offer superior gloss and color retention, making them suitable for exterior and interior applications. Solvent-based acrylic resins usually have better chemical resistance and weather resistance compared to water-based acrylic resins. Alkyd resins are also used for architectural paint and coatings due to their high gloss. These resins have high durability as well. Urethanes are versatile resins that can be used for several types of applications.
Gantrade also offers a specialty crosslinking technology based on DAAM & ADH. This state-of-the art technology promotes high performance paint formulations. Our diol and polyol product lines are versatile hydroxyl functional building blocks for polyurethane, saturated and unsaturated (UPR) polyesters, and alkyd coating resins. Gantrade’s vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymers emulsions and redispersible powders serve as a versatile base for coatings & paint formulations.
With a commitment to innovation, Gantrade stays on the leading edge of monomer and intermediate production, developing next-stage building blocks that define the future of paint & coatings. Through new technologies, high performance, consistent quality, and a collaborative mindset, Gantrade delivers sustainability with a competitive edge.
