●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.

  • Polysiloxane Acrylic Hybrid Resins

    Functional Products

    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.
