  • Polyester / Alkyd Resins

    Functional Products

    Polyester / Alkyd Resins

    • House Equipment / Infrastructure
    • Functional Materials

    Polyester resins have good mechanical properties such as flexibility, impact resistance and abrasion resistance. They also have excellent build and appearance, and are used in a various applications such as construction, wood working, steel sheets, PCM (Pre-Coating Metal) coatings and adhesives.
    Condensation resins are manufactured from the reaction of polyol and polybasic acid and they possess polyester bonds on the main chain.
    For coatings, condensation resins are classified into alkyd resins containing natural oils and fatty acids and oil-free alkyd resins with only a polyester structure.
    Condensation resins are used for various types of coatings including ambient temperature drying, forced drying, baking, and two-component urethane curing. DIC offers polyester/alkyd resins that have achieved high functionality through modification with other resins such as acrylics, urethanes, epoxies, phenols and silicones.

  • Unsaturated Polyester Resins

    Functional Products

    Unsaturated Polyester Resins

    • House Equipment / Infrastructure

    Unsaturated polyester resins are mainly used for glass fiber reinforced plastics (FRP). Having excellent tensile strength, bending strength, impact strength, heat resistance, corrosion resistance and electric property, they are widely used for housing equipment, construction material and transportation equipment. They are also used for non-FRP for casting, coating material, decorative plate and putty. For such a variety of uses, The DIC Group presents many kinds of unsaturated polyester resin products.

  • Amino Resins

    Functional Products

    Amino Resins

    Amino resins are thermosetting resins with excellent tensile strength, hardness and impact resistance. DIC provides specialized amino resins for use as baking finish curing agents in coating and electronics materials. Amino resins produce coating films with improved hardness and solvent resistance when used in combination with alkyd resins, acrylic resins, polyester resins or epoxy ester resins.

  • Amide-imide Resins

    Functional Products

    Amide-imide Resins

    LUXYDIR (former trade name: UNIDIC) amide-imide resins have rigid imide backbone and terminal carboxyl groups which is useful for application as hardener for epoxy resins. They demonstrate excellent compatibility with general-purpose solvents and various epoxy resins, and provide super heat resistance when cured with epoxy resins.

  • Butadiene Resin Latex

    Functional Products

    Butadiene Resin Latex

    Butadiene copolymer latex is generally referred to as synthetic rubber latex. It is a distinctive polymer that possess extremely high rubber elasticity. There are three types of product families, SBR, NBR, and MBR, by the copolymerization of monomers, and these are used in various fields and applications by designing products that make use of their characteristics.
