Nissin Chemical of Japan and Shin-Etsu MicroSi of Phoenix have introduced two solution vinyl resin products, key components in the manufacturing of paints, coatings, inks, adhesives and films. Both Nissin Chemical and Shin-Etsu MicroSi are wholly owned subsidiaries of Shin-Etsu Chemical, the world’s largest supplier of semiconductor materials and silicones, PVC resins, synthetic quartz glass and methylcellulose.
The Vinyblan series is a groundbreaking water-based emulsion developed using the company’s unique polymerization technology. It leverages the features of vinyl chloride to provide:
Chemical stability with other emulsions
Water based environmentally friendly emulsion
The Vinyblan product line has been tested for use as a coating on painted surfaces to improve resistance properties and as a vehicle in paint manufacturing to improve color, dispersion and viscosity. It has a strong polarity from vinyl chloride resin and excellent chromogenic properties when printing. Vinyblan is sold in cans, drums and totes; free samples are available at the company’s website.
The Solbin series is a modified copolymer resin combining the toughness of vinyl chloride with the strong adhesiveness and plasticity of vinyl acetate. The solvent-based Solbin products exhibit the following characteristics:
Forms an odorless, tasteless and transparent film
Is highly resistant to chemicals such as acids, alkalis and brine
Forms a coating film resistant to water, fire-retardant, self-extinguishing, thermoplastic, and heat-sealable.
The Solbin products are sold in 20 to 25 kg bags and are also available for sampling.
Earlier this year it was announced that Nissin Chemical would manufacture the resins in Japan and Shin-Etsu MicroSi will fulfill sales, distribution and applications support in the U.S. Nissin Chemical of Takefu, Japan, is a major supplier of vinyl resins and copolymers to the Asian and Indian markets.
