Alkyd & Modified Alkyd Resins
- Long Oil Alkyd Resins are commonly based on Soya fatty acid and Pentaerythritol. They are recommended for manufacturing architectural paints, wood, metal primers and are also used in printing industry.
- Medium oil Alkyd Resins are based on Soya fatty acid and Pentaerythritol. They have very good chemical properties. They are recommended for manufacturing industrial finishes and primers.
- Short oil Alkyd Resins are based on different fatty acids and Pentaerythritol or Glycerol, and are classified accordingly in two groups of air-drying and non-drying.
- Air-drying resins have very good hardening and adhesion characteristic. These are used for making air-drying hammer & industrial finishes, Nitro -cellulose lacquers, putty and metal surface coatings. Non-drying resins are used in combination with other resins such as Amino, Isocyante and Nitro-cellulose resins. These are used for making stoving enamels, car repair paints, car top coat paints, Nitro-cellulose lacquers, metal surface coatings.
