Functional resins can improve the intrinsic performance of general purpose resins and provide functionalities to texture and other properties. Shin-Etsu offers solvent based vinyl resins combining the chemical resistance of vinyl chloride and the adhesiveness of vinyl acetate, water based vinyl emulsions and additives for slip and abrasion resistance. These functional resins are used across industries including: paints and coatings, inks, paper, textiles, automotive, construction and more!
Solvent based vinyl resins are SOLBIN® grade and formed from a modified vinyl chloride and vinyl acetate copolymer and other polar groups to combine the toughness and chemical resistance of vinyl chloride and the adhesiveness and plasticity of vinyl acetate copolymer. Features of SOLBIN® grade vinyl resins include: flexibility, water absorption resistance and other resistance property such as corrosion, heat, stain, etc. Most SOLBIN® grades are FDA approved. Solvent based vinyl resins are highly versatile and can be used across industries including: adhesives, inks, paper, textiles, paints and coatings, etc.View Details
Water based vinyl emulsions take the characteristics of vinyl chloride and can be used for adhesion, improved resistance to alcohols, acids, etc, and for its strong polarity and chromogenic properties. The VINYBLAN® 700 Series is a polymerized vinyl chloride emulsion developed without any emulsifier allowing for miscibility with pigments and solvents, water resistance and minute particle size. Water based vinyl emulsions are widely used in the ink industry, but additional applications include: textiles, paints, coatings and more.View Details
Shin-Etsu's slip and abrasion resistance additives combine the surface activity of the silicone group with the compatibility of the acrylic group to create a resin to improve sliding performance and abrasion resistance. CHALINE® R resins are a silicone/acrylic hybrid resins powder while CHALINE® E and CHALINE® LC are silicone/acrylic emulsions with enhanced resistance to weather, heat and scratches. Common applications of these slip and abrasion resistance additives include: automotive upholstery, coatings, slip agents for ink, scratch agents, etc.View Details
