Functional ProductsCoating Resins
For more than 60 years, DIC's paint/coating resins have been used in various applications including consumer goods, mobility, consumer electronics, and infrastructure, and have boasted the top share in acrylic, alkyd, epoxy, and UV curable resins in Japan. This is the result of developing various resin technologies and products at the top level in the paint industry, always providing optimal solutions and after-sales services even for substrates that are difficult to paint such as plastic-metal hybrid materials and plastic films, and taking our customer's needs seriously in co-creation.Under the mission of "We create enhanced value and utilize innovation to introduce socially responsible and sustainable products," we will expand to new areas such as healthcare and contribute to the creation of a comfortable society by mobilizing our technological capabilities, service network, and abundant knowledge that has been refined as a leading supplier.
●We would like to develop our new paint product which is differentiated by adding new functions.
●In order to meet with environmental and solvent regulations by using less solvent , we want to increase our product lineups such as high-solid, water-based, or powder paints.
●When we entering new applications and markets, we want to ask DIC to provide not only resin products but also the numerous latest market trends and related state-of arts technical information.
●We need to continue to continuous improvement of our product development after purchasing the resin product. Thus we would ask DIC to cope with our activities.
●In order to realize carbon-free society, we are looking for resin suppliers using bio-based polymer materials.
●Due to the decrease of direct labor, labor-saving needs in painting work is critical. We would like to develop a coating products with excellent weather resistance and self-cleaning properties.
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.
Acrylic Resins for Coatings
Polysiloxane Acrylic Hybrid Resins
The CERANATE are hybrid resins in which inorganic components (polysiloxane) are combined with organic components (acrylic resin). They provide long-term protection and aesthetics of the coated object and reduce maintenance cost. Buildings, bridges, and other structures must not only be durable, but also have excellent stain resistance against airborne particulate matter, otherwise require a short maintenance cycle for cleaning and repainting.
Conventional resins for high weather resistant paints, such as fluoropolymers, still have problems with stain resistance. In addition, there is a trend in the market to tighten regulations on the use of fluorinated compounds. CERANATE, organic-inorganic hybrid resins, overcome these problems and are maintenance-free exterior coating resins that maintains aesthetic appearance for a long period of time. A wide range of products are available, including waterborne, solventborne, and UV curable types, to meet various conditions such as regulations against the use of solvents, coating environment, applications, and substrates.

Polyurethanes for Coatings
Polyurethane resins have excellent water resistance, chemical resistance and toughness, and are broadly used as wood and floor coatings, plastics coatings and sealer.
BURNOCK - Polyurethanes for Coatings
DIC's polyisocyanate BURNOCK can be used mainly as hardeners for 2K curing systems. They are used in a wide range of applications, from wood and floor coatings to anti-corrosion coatings for iron bridges and tanks, automobile refinishing, and coatings for automotive parts.
DIC has aromatic types with excellent drying properties and aliphatic types with excellent light resistance. In addition, for aliphatic types, we offer adduct types with excellent flexibility and rigid isocyanurate types. Please choose according to your purpose.
In order to meet the global needs of formulation proposal including polyols as the main agent and reducing the environmental impact of coating systems, we will expand the lineup of waterborne polyisocyanate products that can respond to environmental challenges such as reduction of odor and the amount of organic solvents used.

Alkyd resins for coatings
Alkyd resins are polyester resins for coatings modified with fatty acids. Fatty acids are mainly made from oils such as castor oil and coconut oil, and are excellent in pigment dispersibility, gloss, and durability. In order of the highest amount of oil, they are called long oil, medium oil, and short oil alkyd resins. In recent years, we have also added waterborne alkyd resins to our lineup as sustainable products.
DIC's alkyd resins are modified with other resins such as acrylic, urethane, epoxy, phenol, and silicone to provide a wide range of highly functional product lineups.
