New Acrylic Latex for
Sealant Applications
UCAR Emulsion Systems, a business unit of the Dow Chemical Company, has developed a new acrylic latex for use primarily in “true clear” sealant applications. UCAR latex 9192 sets new performance standards for total solids/low shrinkage, dry time, rate of clearing, UV stability and ultimate color and clarity, according to the company. UCAR latex 9192 enables formulators to develop clear sealants for a variety of clear applications that require high UV resistance and low VOCs.
