Reduce complexity in your manufacturing plant by having one product do it all - A highly versatile product for road-marking, plastic and metal application

VIACRYL® SC 121/60X - can be used to as a single binder for road-marking paints when a formulator is looking for a binder with good adhesion and abrading resistance that has good whiteness retention.   

Another excellent choice as a sole binder for road-marking applications is VIACRYL® SC 160/60TThis binder also has excellent adhesion to plastics and can be used to formulate direct to plastic coatings for adhesion to PVC, acrylic sheet, polycarbonate and polyester reinforced components. Good water resistance and quick drying characteristics make it a good resin to develop primers and monocoats for metallic substrates.  Coatings based on this product show good adhesion to steel, aluminum and zinc.
  • Fast Dry / good washout resistance

  • Non-discoloring

  • High pigment loading

  • Adhesion to broad substrates

If you need a tough clear systems this product clearly makes it an easy decision – also good if your needs are not so clear as in a pigmented system

SETALUX® 17-1246 is a fast–dry thermoplastic acrylic (TPA) resin solution which provides an excellent balance of hardness, adhesion and film toughness.    The exceptional  clarity and transparency make it a perfect choice for highly transparent clear or  pigmented air-dry or force-dry coatings.

  • Good for overbake yellowing resistance

  • Excellent adhesion to untreated substrates

  • Can be used as a modifying resin
