Alkyd Resins for Lacquers/Baking Finishes

Alkyd resins are manufactured from the condensation reaction between oil or polyols, acids, and alcohol. They are typically used as binders for coatings and printing inks. For lacquers in particular, nitrocellulose (NC) and CAB with excellent drying properties are used in combination with short oil alkyd resins that have low content of used oil.
And for baking finishes, by combining amino resins as curing agents with short oil alkyd resins and oil-free alkyd resins (polyester resins), they can be used to coat various industrial products.
