Allnex announces that its Liquid Resins & Additives (LRA) business line will switch to the use of partially, mass balanced, biobased pentaerythritol in all alkyds produced at our European sites in the second quarter of this year.

Increased bio-content

According to the company, this measure will increase the bio-content of its water borne and solvent borne alkyds by 25%. This additional bio-content will increase the relatively high bio-content of the alkyds, and the total bio-content of some products will exceed 60%.

As a result of this transition, Allnex expects to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1 kiloton per year.

EC Library Polyester and Alkyd Resins


Polyester and Alkyd Resins

Polyester and alkyd resins belong to the most diverse and important material classes of paint chemistry and their usage as binders has been established for a long time. This standard work goes into detail on the composition, structure and properties of these important binder groups and subjects previous findings in that field to a critical review. It shows different precise calculation approaches in modern coatings development, ways to formulate polyester and alkyd resins in experimental designs and how to vary them systematically. A practice- and future-oriented reference book that should not be missing in any laboratory!
