Alkyd Resins for Thermosetting

Short oil alkyd resins are typically used as binders for coatings and printing inks. For lacquers in particular, they are used in combination with nitro cellulose (NC) or cellulose acetate butylate (CAB), which have excellent drying properties.
Hard coating films can be formd out of crosslinking between alkyd resins and amino resins.
