Vertellus launches new polyols based upon renewable chemistry

According to Vertellus Specialty Materials, the new products Polycin XP - 100 LV and Polycin XP - 200 LV have excellent properties for use in industrial coatings applications, allowing formulators to increase solids and lower VOC's without sacrificing other key performance characteristics. "One serious drawback to solvent borne acrylic urethane coatings is the high level of VOCs, which are required to allow them to have good application characteristics,” said Dr. Tim Miller, Technical Director at Vertellus Specialties. "The Polycin polyol line from Vertellus is generally used as a reactive diluent in SB acrylic urethane coatings,” Miller added. The key features of these new polyols are that they are 100 % solids, have low viscosity and the ability to reduce the viscosity of a formulation. The products also impart good film hardness, excellent moisture and chemical resistance, as well as having excellent compatibility with acrylic resin. In addition, they are based upon Vertellus' renewable chemistry which uses castor oils and its derivatives.
