Adhesive & Sealant

Adhesives and sealants have been used for centuries, with the emergence of chemical industry and synthetic polymers. Today’s adhesives and sealants are classified in many different ways – by curing or bonding mechanism, by chemistry type or by applications (e.g. structural vs. non-structural).

One of the largest markets for adhesives and sealants today is Building & Construction as well as the Transportation segment where we can offer specialty ingredients to enhance quality, adhesion & cohesion, mechanical fastening, heat & long term durability, etc.

Automotive OEC & Car Refinish

Automotive paint is used on automobiles for both protection and decoration purposes. Paints and coatings developed for the automotive industry are also the most demanding in terms of quality and aesthetic value desired by end-use customers. The high expectations and demands of the end-user drive car manufacturers and body shop owners to maintain uniform high quality. Overall, the requirements of automotive paint are desirable durability, good weathering resistance, good chemical resistance, as well as good mechanical properties.

Construction & Floor Coating

Construction coatings are tough, protective layers used in applications where heavy surface wear or corrosion are expected. Typical applications include warehouses, chemical plants, and manufacturing floors. Construction coatings can also be used to brighten or define areas of facilities, mark traffic aisles, route traffic, cover stained concrete, or in concrete admixtures.

purple resin pearls

Resin Polymerisation

The binder, or resin, is usually what gives the coating its name, such as polyurethane or acrylic. While the pigment provides a paint with colour, the additives give it extra desirable characteristics, and the solvent gives it the necessary consistency for application. The binder is the film-forming component of paint, the vehicle that carries the pigment and then dries or cures, holding it in place. The binder is also responsible for adhesion, durability, flexibility, gloss, and other physical properties. Binders and resins for paint are one of the most important elements of coatings.

Industrial & Heavy Duty Coating

Industrial coating is a paint or coating defined by it’s protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both. The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel or concrete. These coatings include both air drying and stoving coatings and will include coatings across a wide range of uses such as nuts and bolts, office furniture, toolboxes, transformers, power plant, transport containers and agricultural and construction equipment.

Pigment Paste

Pigment Paste is a ready to use form of pigments. Pigment paste or concentrate is widely used in many paint applications. They have several benefits, such as increased productivity, as well as very high efficiency in colour tinting processes.

Precoated Metal Coating

Metal coatings are coatings that are applied to metal to protect the metal and reduce wear and tear. An unprotected metal will rust and corrode due to environmental exposure. By coating the metal, an extra layer of protection is provided. A variety of coatings can be applied to metal, and the choice of which type of coating to apply is determined by the end use of the metal product. Metal coatings prevent oxidation and rust. Without a protective coating, the metal of a train or car would quickly be damaged by the liquids and chemicals to which it is routinely exposed.

Printing Inks

Ink is used to colour a surface to produce an image, text, or design. Ink is used for drawing or writing with a pen, brush, or quill. Thicker inks, in paste form, are used extensively in letterpress and lithographic printing. Ink can be a complex medium, composed of solvents, pigments, dyes, resins, lubricants, solubilisers, surfactants, particulate matter, fluorescents, and other materials. The components of inks serve many purposes. The ink’s carrier, colourants, and other additives affect the flow and thickness of the ink and its dry appearance.

Wood Coating

These are coatings applied in factories to wood for a range of uses, which include office furniture, kitchen and bathroom fittings, general furniture and industrial joinery. These are different from ‘wood care’ coatings, which are the DIY coatings such as wood varnishes and coatings for fences and decking.

Solving Challenges for Coating Industries

Creating modern consumer products is an advanced process with numerous challenges and potential pitfalls. Our teams are here to evaluate and advise. Take a look at a few common industry challenges and see how we approach these issues and help customers overcome them.

Improving heat reflection for architectural paints

Studies of glass bubbles and ceramic spheres have found that both materials can help to significantly reduce the temperature inside buildings by improving heat-reflection and insulation properties. Our technical team can provide guidance and testing facilities to support such applications.

Improving elongation and flexibility of rooftop paints

Our team can provide products which improve the flexibility and elongation of  rooftop paints. This can help prevent water leakage due to film cracking.

Optimising paint and solving defects

Choosing the right additives can help optimise the production process and paint defects, as well as increase the productivity of coatings and printing inks. Even the smallest adjustments to the type and quantity of additives can have profound impacts. Our technical team can help guide and test applications, supporting clients with relevant solutions.

Improving quality and accuracy of colour tinting

Our team offers high-quality colourants for both in-plant and POS systems. Our products integrate with automatic colour tinting software to control the accuracy of colour tinting and optimise productivity. We also provide one-stop services, such as formulation creation, establishing databases and providing auto-colour software support.

Improving anti-slip for floor coatings

We successfully developed a water-based anti-slip for floor coatings to increase the coefficiency of friction. Our solution uses glass bubbles to develop excellent anti-slippery properties. Our team can customise and build new formulations, based on these guidelines, supporting clients with tailored solutions.

Providing cost-down solutions

We are formulation creators and can help clients find the right formula to reduce costs. We achieve this by extensively testing and exchanging formulation parts, which will result in improved quality at lowered costs.

Providing formulation guidance

Our Regional Coating Innovation Centre can create tailored formulas. We have both the technical expertise as well as the infrastructure to run small and large projects. This provides clients with a unique opportunity of innovating, without having to invest heavily in testing equipment or R&D staff costs.
