WACKER at ABRAFATI: Showcases Vinnapas Dispersions for Decorative Paints

September 12, 2013

At ABRAFATI 2013 in São Paulo, the WACKER Group is showcasing two new vinyl acetate- and ethylene-based dispersions as binders for sophisticated adhesive solutions. VINNAPAS EP6300 and VINNAPAS EP7000 enable the formulation of high-performance, water based adhesives with a broad variety of uses, from bonding paper labels to plastic bottles over vinyl lamination to construction and flooring applications. Moreover, both products are manufactured without the use of alkylphenol ethoxylates (APEOs). Additional highlights are WACKER's alpha-silane-based hybrid polymers for solvent- and tin-free sealants and adhesives and vapor- permeable liquid waterproofing membranes, dispersions for high-quality decorative paints as well as its dispersible polymer powders for decorative exterior plasters and self-leveling flooring compounds. ABRAFATI 2013 is being held from September 16 to 18 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

At ABRAFATI 2013, WACKER is showcasing the newly developed VINNAPAS® EP6300 and VINNAPAS® EP7000 for the first time on the American market. The polymer dispersions based on vinyl acetate- ethylene copolymers (VAE) are ideal binders for formulating high-performance yet environmentally compatible water-based adhesives.

Other Product Highlights at ABRAFATI 2013:

    VINNAPAS Dispersions for High-Quality Decorative Paints
        The VAE dispersions VINNAPAS EF8300 and VINNAPAS® EF8001 are ideal for interior decorative paints and coatings that combine high performance with a reduced environmental impact: Both are manufactured without the use of formaldehyde donors or APEO and enable the formulation of high-quality coatings with low odor and a low content of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Further, these dispersions offer a good cost/benefit ratio.

    GENIOSIL STP-E: Rapid-Curing Hybrid Adhesives
        GENIOSIL STP-E technology's alpha hybrid polymers are ideal for producing fast-curing, one-component adhesives and sealants. The alpha effect even allows for the formulation of tin-free systems. Adhesives formulated with GENIOSIL STP-E have outstanding mechanical properties, are exempt from labeling requirements and can be formulated without plasticizers and solvents. GENIOSIL STP-E is used, for example, in the automotive sector and in container construction or for bonding parquet floors.

    Watertight But Vapor-Permeable: GENIOSIL WP
        Liquid waterproofing membranes based on GENIOSIL WP are ideal for waterproofing flat roofs, balconies and terraces. They can be formulated with conventional equipment without using solvents. The one-component end products are classified as non-hazardous and adhere to many different substrates with no need for a primer. They can be processed with a roller or airless spray gun in almost any weather conditions. When cured, the membrane forms a firm, nontacky surface that is rainproof, watertight and vapor permeable.
    VINNAPAS Dispersible Polymer Powder for Decorative Exterior Plasters and Self-Leveling Flooring Compounds
        VINNAPAS 3030 dispersible polymer powder exhibits excellent water repellency and outstanding mechanical properties and is thus ideal for decorative exterior plasters. The VINNAPAS® brand of dispersible polymer powders further enables the formulation of self-leveling flooring compounds and fillers that produce smooth, even surfaces and feature high abrasion resistance as well as flexural and compressive strength.
