Acrylic Resins for Coatings Acrylic Resins for Coatings

Acrylic resins are considered excellent transparency and weather resistance. Acrylic resins can be extensively designed from extremely hard to sticky according to the performance requirements by selecting monomer and adjusting molecular weight. Acrylic resins can be used for a wide range of applications, from familiar products such as coatings and adhesives,to industrial products like optical lenses and light guide plates.Therefore, this resin is one of the high potential material to be possibly applied for various new applications.
DIC's acrylic resins products are used not only for paints and coatings, but also for various applications such as paper, fiber processing, and adhesives. In addition, the product lineup has been expanded from solventborne to waterborne and powder products to comply with stricter VOC regulations in each country.
Utilizing our expertise in resin design and deeper understanding of various applications, DIC proposes solutions to challenges of various substrates and applications including automotive, architectural, and plastic coatings.

Waterborne acrylic resins are environmentally friendly products that can reduce odor and solvent used in paint. Although waterborne resins are largely used for decorative coatings, DIC has developed emulsion and dispersion type waterborne resins for mainly industrial applications like consumer electronics, automotive, construction machinery. In addition, DIC offers unique products such as urethane/silicone hybrid type and poly-isocyanate for plastics and metal substrates, of which waterborne resins are generally difficult to achieve technical requirement.
