    Solvay brings a series of specialty polymer technologies to the 2014 China International Coatings Show

    Provide sustainable high-performance materials for the ever-changing coatings industry

    Water-based PVDC polymer anticorrosive coating products meet the needs of architectural and industrial coatings

    Functionalized PFPE technology to create a self-healing smart coating


    December 3, 2014, Guangzhou, China-On the occasion of the grand opening of the 19th Chinacoat 2014, Solvay Specialty Polymers grandly launched its advanced and innovative solutions to deal with The key challenges facing the development of the coatings market in the entire Greater China region

    .
    Driven by China’s new regulations on volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions, the industry is facing an important transition from solvent coatings to water-based coating systems, high solids and powder coating systems to better promote economic growth and enable Create a healthier and greener environment

    .
    At the same time, more and more customers also put forward new requirements for the development of materials, hoping to obtain significantly enhanced sustainability performance without sacrificing their workability and performance

    .


    "Currently, climate change, rising health standards, and resource shortages are profoundly affecting the mainstream trend of the chemical industry, and access to innovative raw material technologies can help paint formulators take the lead when facing market demand

    .
    " Solvay Specialty Dr.
    Zhizhong Du, General Manager of Polymers Greater China and Southeast Asia Operations, said, “Today we are very determined to bring Solvay’s expertise in high-performance specialty polymers to the local market, in order to help customers in the Asia-Pacific region improve Good to meet and grasp the opportunities of tomorrow's coatings market

    .
    " He added

    .


    In response to the development of more sustainable "green" coatings, Solvay can provide a wide range of innovative specialty polymer product technologies

    .
    For example, the Diofan® HBP series of high barrier water-based (PVDC) polymers can specifically meet the requirements of the marine and protective coating industries.
    Its innovation is that it is a three-coating system that converts from a zinc-containing solvent-based coating to a water-based system.
    Zinc-free double coating system solution

    .
    As a significant cost-effective primer in container coating systems, water-based Diofan® HBP can also provide first-class corrosion protection for metals, including surface corrosion protection that meets C5-M regulations in high-salinity coastal or offshore areas

    .
    Its excellent high barrier properties can be achieved by a single-layer protective coating, and its use of plasticizers and any alkyl phenol ethoxylate (APE) features can also solve major environmental health problems

    .
    In addition, as a high barrier polymer without bisphenol A (BPA), it is also approved for use in and in contact with drinking water, and provides a new option for the synthesis of BPA-containing epoxy resin polymers

    .


    The current goals, initiatives, and action plans formulated by the Chinese government to improve air quality have also driven major changes in market development, and companies will face severe penalties if they violate relevant rules

    .
    Therefore, the high-barrier water-based Diofan® P520 and P530 polymers from Solvay can play an important role in this regard and help the coatings industry obtain more development opportunities

    .
    In addition to excellent corrosion resistance, these innovative technologies can also be extremely effective in reducing VOC emissions when used in double-layer coating systems, which has been well proven in the practical applications of marine transportation

    .


    Milan Krumbe, Director of Global Coatings Market of Solvay Specialty Polymers Division, believes: "China is not only the world's most important coatings market in terms of scale and growth rate, but also the most dynamic region in the industry

    .
    " He added.
    "Solvay has been at the forefront of leading innovative coating technology changes for many years, and continues to provide customers with system solutions that can meet or even exceed the most demanding requirements in the industry

    .
    In the ever-changing macroeconomic environment, Our solutions have always clearly focused on improving performance and sustainability, thereby helping our customers maintain their leading position in the industry, and better meet new regulatory challenges, and win a green and healthy living environment

    .
    "


    Not only that, within the Hylar® 5000 technology platform, Solvay's product portfolio also includes a new water-based polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) technology, which can help architectural coatings achieve sustainable low VOC with its excellent surface properties Emissions, and the effect can be maintained for several years

    .
    These fluoropolymer coatings exhibit excellent UV resistance, water resistance, and chemical resistance, while also avoiding chalking, dyeing, discoloration, and loss of gloss

    .
    It has a long-lasting gloss under unparalleled surface protection, so it can reduce the need for refinishing and reduce the owner's total cost of repairing and maintaining the building

    .


    On the other hand, the truly unique Solvay related technology platform includes functionalized Fluorolink® perfluoropolyether (PFPE) polymers for functional and smart coatings

    .
    These all-round materials from Solvay are very suitable for making surface treatment technologies or polymer modifiers to improve performance and/or product features with added value

    .
    They can reduce the surface energy of coatings, provide excellent oil repellency, antifouling properties and self-lubricating properties, and are often used in coatings that are easy to clean and self-repair

    .
    The specific product grades include Fluorolink® P56 for water-based systems, AD1700 for UV-curable coatings, and E10H as a surface modifier for polyurethane, polyester or epoxy resin

    .
    In many application cases, a concentration range of 0.
    5 to 5 percent is sufficient to improve the final performance of the coating formulation

    .
    Its application areas also extend to drag-reducing coatings used to reduce fuel consumption of ships and aircrafts, and to produce soft contact surfaces required for anti-fingerprint spraying

    .


    Solvay Performance Materials also provides a series of Hyflon® perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) resins for the coatings industry, which have the highest degree of heat resistance and the broadest chemical resistance of all melt-processable fluoropolymers

    .
    These materials are widely used as coatings in the electrical and electronic, semiconductor, food processing and chemical processing industries.
    The application forms include water-based dispersions and valve tank linings

    .
    In addition, Hyflon® PFA currently has two main product series: M series has inherent processing stability, higher transmittance and improved surface smoothness; the latter can reduce the tendency of adhesion and bacterial growth; and P series The melting point is higher

    .


    As for coatings with high heat resistance, such as non-stick cookware, Solvay also offers KetaSpire® polyether ether ketone (PEEK) and Torlon® polyamide-imide (PAI) grades.
    These two materials are more than It exhibits excellent long-term heat cycle performance at furnace temperatures up to 240°C

    .
    The Halar® ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE) resin powder grade used in primers, topcoats and varnishes can provide first-class chemical resistance for the chemical processing industry and anti-corrosion lining coating applications

    .
    The new development of these materials can focus on expanding the application range of thin coatings (such as transportation applications, etc.
    )

    .


    This year's China International Coatings Show will be held at the Canton Fair Pavilion in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province from December 3rd to 5th.
    During this period, Solvay Specialty Polymers will focus on exhibiting its products in Hall 9.
