The HYDROLAR line consists of waterborne dispersions of polyurethanes, used as coatings on materials such as leather, synthetic leather, synthetic fibres, wood, paper, etc., to create attractive finishes and improve the substrate's physical-mechanical strength and chemical resistance.
HYDROLAR line products are also used as adhesives as an alternative to less environment-friendly solvent-based products.
The raw materials for this line are polyester, polyether and other polyols and aromatic and aliphatic isocyanates.
The IMUTHANE product line consists of formulated polyurethane systems and intermediates for the production of technical elastomers, coatings and sealants.
These systems are normally used by manufacturers of technical articles in general, including wheels, vibration dampers and abrasion-resistant coatings, and by polyurethane system formulators in general.
The IMUTHANE line is subdivided into 4 families: 1) TDI, MDI and aliphatic prepolymers 2) TDI and aliphatic prepolymers with very low free monomer content 3) TDI prepolymers with low free monomer content 4) Formulated curing agents and process additives
The GLICEXTER line consists of alkyd resins used for the production of solvent-based varnishes and enamels. The main applications of Glicexter range polymers are coating products for industry, for varnishing wood, for construction and for road markings.
GLICEXTER products are subdivided on the basis of polymer oil content: the main categories are short, medium, long and modified oil resins.
The FILCO line consists of products used in the treatment of reinforcing fibres for composites: all reinforcing fibres, whether in glass, carbon, basalt or other materials, require a specific surface treatment, to enable to function effectively in the composite.
FILCO products can be categorized into:
• Waterborne resin dispersions of different chemistry (polyester, epoxy, polyurethane and hybrid) used as film-formers in the formulation of reinforcing fibre sizing • additives for the formulation of reinforcing fibre sizing • polyester powders used as mat binders, which can be powder soluble (CSM binders) or powder insoluble (CFM binders)
COIM is an italian company which has been developing and producing chemical specialties since 1962.
Since more than 50 years, when it started its business, Coim is an international group leader in the production of polyesters and polyols, polyurethanes(coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers), and specialty resins for composites and coatings.
