Thermosetting Acrylic Resins
Continuing development in the field of acrylic polymers for surface coating applications lead to commercialization of heat curing thermosetting acrylic resins for using in high quality industrial coating systems for both interior and exterior applications. Whilst retaining the excellent color and chemical resistance properties. Thermoset acrylic resins also offer the advantages of significantly higher applications solids, improved hardness and chemical resistance. Furthermore, through judicious choice of backbone monomers, monomer levels and crosslink density, a wide spectrum of film performances can be achieved. As a result thermosetting acrylics started to replace alkyd-amino stoving finishes in automotive and domestic appliances, metal decorating, coil coating and number of other applications.
They also offer many advantages such as:
-Significantly higher application solids
-Weather and chemical resistance
