Clariant developed two innovative reactive emulsifiers for polymeric binders

October 15/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Clariant unveils two innovative reactive emulsifiers for polymeric binders Emulsogen CPA 100 XS and Emulsogen CPN 100 XS - to help paint makers achieve architectural coatings offering outstanding water-resistance and greater resistance to dirt pick-up and snail trails, said the company.

Clariants new emulsifiers firmly anchor to pure acrylic or styrene acrylic binders to create stabilized, outstandingly hydrophobic, small-particle binders. They prevent emulsifier migration that would typically impair key attributes such as paint water resistance and substrate adhesion, or cause unsightly aesthetic defects like snail trails and dirt pick-up, boosting chances for coatings manufacturers to address latest requirements.

"Dirt pick-up and leaching resistance are increasingly demanded of todays exterior architectural coatings. Although influenced by various factors, an acrylic or styrene acrylic binder that is less sensitive to water uptake will form a tightly-sealed film able to retain ingredients and protective qualities. Without emulsifier leaching to contribute adverse effects to the paint performance, theres much less chance for unwanted snail trails etcetera to occur. In testing, our new anchored emulsifiers deliver whitening-free, clear films compared to alternatives, an industry-recognized sign of a higher quality, water-resistant binder to advance higher-performing paints and fewer defects," comments Sebastian Prock, Global Marketing Segment Leader Industrial Applications at Clariant.

On top of paint benefits, Clariants new emuslifiers bring the advantages of a smoother, less disrupted binder production process. Because the binder has smaller, stabilized particles, there is less clogging or coagulation from large particles to cause slower stirring or a need for frequent cleaning breaks.

As it was said before, Clariants new ODH catalysts prove ideal for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane and are available exclusively for Linde Engineerings innovative EDHOX catalytic on-purpose ethylene technology. As compared to conventional steam cracking, the new catalysts and process design reduce costs as well as CO2 emissions by up to 100 %.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,396,960 tonnes in January-July 2021, up by 7% year on year. Shipments of all grades of ethylene polymers increased. At the same time.
