Demand Grows for Coatings with Vinyl Applications

One of the most popular uses of our amazing acrylic polymer coatings is for adherence to vinyl substrates. Our acrylic polymers are an industry standard in providing superb adhesion to vinyl. Our polymers meet the high alkali resistance required for floor coating and wall coating applications, especially when used on vinyl surfaces. We also produce [...]

What Are VOCs?

Volatile organic compounds – otherwise known as VOCs – are a variety of compounds that are emitted as gases from certain types of solids and liquids. The concentration of VOCs can be particularly high indoors (up to 10x higher than outdoors) and can be emitted from a vast amount of household products. Wax, paints, and [...]

Acrylic Polymers in the Healthcare Industry

Acrylic polymer, derived from the monomer methyl methacrylate (MMA), was first developed more than 60 years ago. Since then, formulations have extended the material's performance range, resulting in varying levels of melt flow, impact resistance, colorability, gamma recovery, and other controlled characteristics. General-purpose acrylic grades contain a comonomer, added during the polymerization process, to facilitate [...]
