Solventborne Resins

Solventborne Resins

allnex has been a leader in the development of novel, high solids, solventborne resin technology for the formulation of long-lasting, high-performing solventborne coatings with a reduced environmental impact:

  • VIALKYD® high solids solvent-based alkyds and oil-free polyesters are used in various decorative and industrial applications.
  • VIACRYL® solventborne acrylic resins are used in thermoplastic, self-crosslinkable and amino-crosslinkable coatings for roadmarking, packaging coatings and industrial topcoats.
  • MACRYNAL® high solids polyols are used in the formulation of high-performance industrial, automotive and protective topcoats and clearcoats with VOCs below 420g/l.
  • DUROFTAL® polyester resins are used in BADGE-free packaging coatings and coil coatings. 

While the coatings industry is moving away from solvent-based formulations, there are still many applications where solventborne coatings have been shown to be a sustainable solution or are needed for performance.
