Vertellus Introduces Polycin® XP EP3 at American Coatings Show

Vertellus Introduces Polycin® XP EP3 at American Coatings Show

Emulsifiable polyol offers formulators enhanced latitude and performance in urethane-modified concrete coatings

 

(April 7, 2016, Indianapolis, Ind., USA) — Vertellus, a global manufacturer of fine and specialty chemicals, is introducing Polycin® XP EP3 to coating manufacturers during the American Coatings Show, April 12-14, in Indianapolis. Polycin® XP EP3 is a stable and robust castor oil-based  emulsifiable polyol offering a wide level of formulating flexibility enabling coating formulators to reduce development time while maintaining or improving emulsion stability and coating performance.

Polycin® XP EP3 permits users to easily adjust the formulation as needed for a wide range of applications simply by adding water and other additives. The versatility of Polycin® XP EP3 makes it well suited across a wide range of concrete coating applications requiring various levels of performance via the addition of cross-linkers, plasticizers, and additives.  “Formulators regularly face the challenge of balancing emulsion stability and final coating performance. During testing and model formulation, Polycin®* XP EP3 was able to achieve both emulsion stability and coating performance in various commercial formulations,” said Kwyne Pugh, senior scientist, Vertellus.  

During testing, Polycin® XP EP3 emulsions and coatings performed favorably when compared to commercially available products. For example, coatings containing Polycin® XP EP3 showed greater stability at room temperature and under multi-cycle freeze/thaw when compared to other commercial polyol emulsions. Testing also concluded that Polycin® XP EP3 improves the wet-out and impact resistance of the floor coating.

Vertellus will provide a 15-minute overview of Polycin® XP EP3 during the American Coatings Show on Tuesday, April 12, at 9:20 a.m. in the Product Presentation Theater. Additional information about Vertellus and Polycin® XP EPE will be available at booth 2556 during the American Coatings Show. Vertellus has a long history of innovation in castor oil-based chemistries including polyols and other castor-based products for the coatings industry. Polycin® XP EP3 is the newest addition to a full line of polyols, castor oils, polymerized castor oils, and dehydrated castor oils offered by Vertellus.
