    [short_title] => 
    [summary] => Ymer N180 will be available for samples in December with N90 released in early 2020.
    [slug] => perstorp-expanding-ymer-nonionic-dispersing-monomer-range
    [body] => Perstorp announced the extension of its Ymer nonionic dispersing monomer product range for Polyurethane Dispersion (PUD).

PUDs are used in many applications such as adhesives and coatings for leather, textiles, wood and automotive.

In response to customer interest, and to increase the formulation window, Perstorp is in the process of launching two new grades – Ymer N90, with a longer EO chain, and N180, with a shorter EO chain.

Ymer will allow customers to formulate solvent-free PUDs and minimize the level of harmful amines in production and during application.

“The current Ymer N120 has proven very popular and Ymer N90 and N180, will help producers to further optimize PUD formulations in terms of dispersibility, stability, hardness and flexibility, meeting their and their customers’ needs,” said Henrik Aplander, Perstorp business development director.

Ymer, for example, can be used to change the surface feeling of leather making it ideal for use in the synthetic leather industry where there is a strong trend away from the use of solvents. Ymer is ideal to support customers in this transition.

“Asia is a strong growth market in many of the industrial segments in which Ymer is gaining traction. We are pleased to continue to strengthen our offering in this region, in order to be an ideal partner for our customers located here, and we look forward to collaborative discussions at ChinaCoat,” said Peter Zhang, Perstorp’s regional sales manager in China.

Ymer N180 will be available for samples in December with N90 released in early 2020.

[slug] => ashland-launches-thickening-anti-sagging-agent [body] =>
Ashland announced it has launched a new highly efficient thickening and anti-sagging agent for use in inorganic zinc-rich primers.
 
Klucel MS HPC is a non-ionic water-soluble cellulose ether with a versatile combination of properties. The product is suitable for permanent and temporary coatings sprayed onto ship panels prior to welding.
 
“This brand new HPC technology enables a major improvement in dissolution speed in polar organic solvents. The product provides the highest thickening efficiency against chemistries commonly used as thickeners and anti-sagging agents for solvent-based zinc-rich primers,” said Dr. Robert Gibbison, marketing director performance additives. “Furthermore, the product is soluble in water and multiple polar organic solvents used to control viscosity.
 
“Our customers are looking to improve their efficiencies and to improve the speed they can turn around product to the end customers,” Gibbison added. “This new Klucel MS HPC gives them an edge in a competitive market place by offering fast dissolution and also a cost saving due to the lower dosage needed in the formulation.”

Ashland announced it has launched a new highly efficient thickening and anti-sagging agent for use in inorganic zinc-rich primers.
 
Klucel MS HPC is a non-ionic water-soluble cellulose ether with a versatile combination of properties. The product is suitable for permanent and temporary coatings sprayed onto ship panels prior to welding.
 
“This brand new HPC technology enables a major improvement in dissolution speed in polar organic solvents. The product provides the highest thickening efficiency against chemistries commonly used as thickeners and anti-sagging agents for solvent-based zinc-rich primers,” said Dr. Robert Gibbison, marketing director performance additives. “Furthermore, the product is soluble in water and multiple polar organic solvents used to control viscosity.
 
“Our customers are looking to improve their efficiencies and to improve the speed they can turn around product to the end customers,” Gibbison added. “This new Klucel MS HPC gives them an edge in a competitive market place by offering fast dissolution and also a cost saving due to the lower dosage needed in the formulation.”

It takes time and you have to be creative if you want to continually raise the bar.  We believe Joel helps us do just that while reaffirming our commitment to continually invest in the future of our business and the business of our partners, by upgrading the capabilities of our team and our business as a whole wherever and whenever it benefits the collective.”
