Water-based Acrylics and PolyurethanesSroll down to read more
Industries and consumers alike are looking for innovative solutions that combine safety with high-performance qualities. Coating technologies thus require the highest possible quality standard, both in functionality as well as environmental responsibility. Our resins are designed for this exact purpose with our Picassian® and Relca® portfolios of water-based acrylics and polyurethanes.
Meeting industry needs high-quality resins
Whether it is protection or aesthetics, our water-based polymer technologies offer durable performance when it comes to their application. We also believe that our responsibly produced resins contribute to a reduced environmental footprint. Our Picassian® and Relca® polymers portfolios provide you with solutions for numerous applications. These water-based acrylics, polyurethanes and VOC-free crosslinkers are widely used in a range of industries, including architectural applications, indoor & outdoor wood, flooring, metal, flexible packaging and automotive plastics.
Solvent-free coating technologies for safer interior spaces
The water-based and VOC-free resins have the additional benefit that they make poorly ventilated areas safer as there is no emission of solvents taking place. Additionally, these polymers lower the flammability of treated surfaces. Reducing the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a major market trend and part of environmental compliance in many industries. In the architectural coating market, our self-crosslinking acrylic emulsions, cosolvent-free polyurethanes and VOC-free crosslinkers are widely used for that purpose.
Your partner in coating resins technology
Stahl Polymers works together with its partners and customers to create solutions that add the best characteristics to materials. Our polymers enhance performance for a variety of applications, but we know well that each requires different properties and defining characteristics that offer a differentiating position in their respective markets. That’s why we create tailor-made solutions and resins, from high-performance polyurethanes to specialty acrylic emulsions and carbodiimide crosslinkers. This is why we often work side-by-side with our customers in a partnership-as service approach to help you find the perfect formulation or resin technology for your product.
Key Benefits of Water-based Acrylics and Polyurethanes
