Dow Corning introducing new resin for high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings
Dow Corning® 2405 Resin offers improved coating flexibility and
impact resistance plus better film build
Dow Corning Corporation has introduced a new silicone resin to meet the
need for high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings with
improved flexibility, impact resistance and film build.
2405 Resin is a solventless methyl methoxy resin. When catalyzed by
titanium compounds, such as TnBT, the product cures within 60 minutes at
ambient temperature to form a medium-hard coating with good solvent resistance
and high heat resistance.
This new resin is designed to help formulators overcome limitations –
including brittleness, poor impact resistance and film-building constraints –
associated with resins traditionally used to formulate
high-temperature-resistant, room-temperature-curing coatings.
"Paint formulators are under pressure to deliver more-sustainable
products. This is reflected in the demand for less energy-intensive curing
systems for heat-resistant coatings," said Dow Corning Coatings Global
Segment Leader Chris Wall. "With its solventless delivery, tin-free cure
and improved impact resistance, Dow Corning 2405 Resin
significantly extends the formulating space for room-temperature-curing
coatings for high-temperature applications."
Dow Corning – a global leader in silicon-based solutions for paints,
inks and coatings – offers a comprehensive selection of innovative
silicon-based resins, binders and additives for the coatings industry.
